The placement funds will be used for further development of the project in addition to advancing its 250tpa pilot plant towards the first production of lithium carbonate.

it’s the same project where Pursuit Minerals (ASX:PUR) recently reported “significant high-grade lithium” from its maiden Stage 1 drilling program at the Maria Magdelena tenement.

Intercepts have occurred at shallow depths of about 131 metres, with highlights including:

  • 620mg/L from an interval of 115.50 to 117.50m
  • 607mg/L from an interval of 129m to 131m

Notably, grades of over 600mg/Li are the highest achieved at this shallow depth.


Funding near-term production

“We look forward to delivering for shareholders and stakeholders through execution of our upcoming significant work programs.”
