The big news winner was Winsome (ASX:WR1) despite a confusing few days.

The company recently clarified the confusion regarding a 160m pegmatite intersection below the recently discovered and well mineralised Jamar outcrop at the Adina Lithium Project in Quebec, Canada.

Trade was paused after it became clear that there was something amiss. Winsome then produced another statement retracting this and then overnight put out another announcement which included some tables it forgot before again jumping into a trading halt pending the company’s response to an ASX price query.

Argonaut Resources (ASX:ARE) announced that fieldwork has led to the discovery of additional, large Lithium-Caesium-Tantalum Pegmatites (LCT Pegmatites) within the Darson pegmatite swarm at ARE’s 80% held Higginsville project in Western Australia.

The pegmatite swarm extends over an aggregate strike length of two kilometres and samples have been submitted for analysis.

And recently listed Atlantic Lithium (ASX:A11) reported its highest-grade assay to date of 4.52% Li2O over 1m from 54m as well as 3.99% Li2O from 53m at the Ewoyaa Lithium Project in Ghana, West Africa.
