Global Lithium Resources Ltd (ASX:GL1) head of geology Stuart Peterson tells Proactive the company is back drilling for more lithium at the Manna Project in Western Australia, mobilising six drill rigs – including a diamond drill for deeper exploration – in an effort to expand the asset’s 36 million tonnes lithium resource at 1.13% lithium. The company intends to undertake 50,000 metres of drilling in total, targeting infill resource extensions as well as deeper lithium-caesium-tantalum pegmatite targets at depth and along strike of the currently known mineralisation. GL1 intends to incorporate the results from this program into an updated lithium resource estimate, anticipating a “considerable” upgrade to both size and confidence.
“I am pleased to see the drill rigs spinning again at the Manna Lithium Project after completing a significant amount of development and planning work throughout the first half of 2023,” Peterson said.
“To complete the heritage surveys over the entire mining lease application area is a big step forward for the further development of the project and I am looking forward to seeing how large this resource can grow now we have a clear path for exploration and resource expansion.”
