All assays from the successful 41-hole maiden drilling program have been received as Charger Metals gets on with the next tasks in preparation for more drilling.  

Drilling at Charger’s (ASX:CHR) Medcalf prospect, within the Lake Johnston project in WA, has delineated a swam of stacked spodumene-bearing pegmatites up to 13m thick within a 100m wide corridor along 700m strike and 250m down dip.

High-grade intersections such as 4m at 2.06% Li2O from 145m, 6m at 1.56% Li2O from 19m, and 6m at 1.52% Li2O from 26m will now be modelled to define priority targets for follow-up drilling to test for extensions to the mineralisation. 

Lithium intersected on nearly every drill section

CHR managing director Aidan Platel says the program was a great success with high-grade lithium within logged pegmatites intersected on nearly every drill section.

“The potential for further high-grade lithium mineralisation at Medcalf remains open, and our team is now busy modelling the drilling results in order to define extensional targets for the next phase of drilling,” he says.

Aboriginal Heritage survey to kick off this week

As part of the preparations for the next phase of drilling, an Aboriginal Heritage survey will begin this week over the area immediately surrounding the Medcalf Prospect.

Company geologists will accompany Traditional Owners of the Ngadju people to conduct the survey, which is expected to take several days.

“In parallel to this our technical team is busy defining exploration programs for several other prospective target areas of the Lake Johnston Project, including the exciting Mt Day Prospect, and we’re looking forward to drill-testing these high priority prospects.”
