Metals Australia (ASX:MLS) has confirmed more lithium mineralisation exists beneath known deposits on-site the company’s WA Manindi project.
A fresh batch of RC drilling results were revealed by the company today.
Included in today’s results is a 13 metre long section of core boasting a mineralised lithium density of 1.03%.
Investor advisory firm Next Investors notes projects with lithium concentrations in cores over 1% total density are considered high-grade.
The assay results today effectively extend the mineralisation on-site to over 120m of vertical depth.
The company is continuing to ascertain growth to the width of deposits.
More drilling will target lithium at depth on-site ahead of a maiden JORC mineral resource estimate, which will boost bankability of the project.
Metals Australia Chairman Mike Scivolo noted previous success at Manindi in discussing today’s results.
“Manindi continues to grow in scope and we now have the opportunity to carry out testwork prior to further drilling and resource estimation,” Scivolo said.
“We have [also] intersected significant mineralisation at the Bandicoot pegmatite, extending the corridor of significant lithium intersections to over 2 kilometres.”
