Forrestania Resources (ASX:FRS) has hit pegmatite in 13 of 14 drill holes at the Calypso prospect, part of the Forrestania project in WA.

Pegmatite is a type of rock that can contain lithium, as well as other valuable commodities.

The thickest intercept (probs not true width) was 63m, the company says.

Assays are due in ~6 weeks.

Drilling is ongoing at the nearby South Iron Cap East prospect, right next door to IGO’s (ASX:IGO) South Ironcap peggie where intercepts include 50.6m at 0.95% lithium.

“It’s fantastic to confirm that there are further pegmatites of significant thickness within Forrestania tenure,” says FRS boss Mike Anderson said.

Cancer fighter INOVIQ (ASX:IIQ) has announced what it calls “excellent results” from an independent clinical validation study of its SubB2M/CA15-3 test for breast cancer detection.

The study showed high accuracy (87%), sensitivity (81%), and specificity (93%) for INOVIQ’s SubB2M test, outperforming a leading approved CA15-3 test.

“These positive results support the commercial potential of our simple, cost-effective SubB2M/CA15-3 test for screening and monitoring of breast cancer,” CEO Dr Leearne Hinch said.
