 What’s new at PMT?

Patriot Battery Metals recently revealed core assay results for fourteen additional drill holes from its 2022 drill campaign at its wholly owned Corvette Property-

  • Drill hole CV22-083 returned the strongest lithium mineralised interval to date at the CV5 Pegmatite with 156.9 m at 2.12% Li2O, incl. 25 m at 5.04% Li2O or 5 m at 6.36% Li2
  • It continues to extend mineralisation eastwardly at the CV5 Pegmatite.
  • The spodumene mineralisation at the CV5 Pegmatite has been traced over a strike length of at least 2,200 m via the 2021 & 2022 drill programs.
  • The overall pegmatite has been defined by several drill holes, incl. CV22-017, 042, 066, 083 over a strike length of at least 250 m.

What’s in store?

Vice President of Exploration, Darren Smith, deems the lithium mineralisation in drill hole CV22-083 to be of “impressive nature”. Moving east, the company is defining a significant high-grade zone at a coarse drill spacing of 50 to 100 m.

Darren Smith further adds that the winter drill program would continue to investigate and delineate this area. In the first half of 2023, an initial mineral resource estimate is planned.

Core assay results for twenty-four drill holes are yet to be reported (fourteen at the CV13 Pegmatite cluster and ten at the CV5 Pegmatite cluster).
