Lake Resources NL DFS Formally Commenced

Brisbane, Australia – Clean lithium developer Lake Resources NL announced today the formal commencement of the Definitive Feasibility Study for the Kachi Lithium Brine Project, with the appointment of Hatch as the lead consultant.

Brisbane, Australia (ABN Newswire) – Clean lithium developer Lake Resources NL (ASX:LKE) (FRA:LK1) (OTCMKTS:LLKKF) announced today the formal commencement of the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) for the Kachi Lithium Brine Project, with the appointment of Hatch as the lead consultant.

This builds upon the compelling and robust Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) announced on 30 April 2020, into the technical and economic viability of Lake’s Kachi Lithium Brine Project in Catamarca, Argentina, based on Lilac’s sustainable direct lithium extraction process. Subsequently the project’s potential to deliver high purity product (99.97% Li2CO3) required by battery makers was demonstrated by Hazen Research, as announced on 20 October 2020. This product has been sent to Novonix for incorporation into batteries.

The DFS is an important milestone in the development of the Kachi Lithium Brine Project as a sustainable and commercially successful producer of high quality lithium product for the rapidly growing battery market. Associated work streams to run in parallel with the DFS include the environmental impact study, continued community engagement, and a demonstration plant to be commissioned on-site later in 2021.

To manage the DFS and related work streams, the board of Lake Resources is pleased to announce that it has appointed Dr Nicholas Lindsay as Technical Director. Previously a Non-Executive Director of Lake Resources, Dr Lindsay is experienced in feasibility studies in South America, and is confidently expected to deliver the Kachi DFS by Q1 2022.

Managing Director Steve Promnitz commented: “The formal commencement of the DFS is a key step for Lake to deliver the Kachi project into production with ESG credentials in demand as the transition to EV’s gathers pace. The bridging studies have been underway since the PFS and now the formal engagement of Hatch has occurred. Nick Lindsay’s assistance with the PFS was invaluable and will now be expanded upon in the DFS.”

When Will Australia Legalise Recreational Cannabis?

Recreational cannabis remains illegal in all Australia’s states and territories with the exception of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). But could that change in the future?

So far there are no clear indicators as to when or if Australia could legalise recreational cannabis, but attitudes seem to be changing. Public support is growing, and there’s even some political acceptance.

Read on to learn more about when Australia may legalise recreational cannabis.

Data Review Enhances Prospectivity at Galan’s Greenbushes South Lithium Project

Highlights:

  • CSIRO’s historical datasets show prospectivity for Galan’s Greenbushes South Lithium Project
  • Historical laterite geochemistry data collected prior to mining at Greenbushes
  • Elevated abundances of pathfinder elements display a well-defined anomaly adjacent to Greenbushes South
  • Dispersion of elements into the laterite profiles include arsenic, tantalum, tin and antimony among others
  • Galan to commence sampling and mapping at Greenbushes South next month

Galan Lithium Limited (ASX: GLN) (Galan or the Company) is pleased to announce that it has completed a review of historical CSIRO data which enhances the prospectivity of its Greenbushes South Lithium project.

AIS Resources’ Australian Yalgogrin Gold Project’s first drill hole returns gold intercepts averaging 1.5g/t over 87 meters including 0.9 meters at 9.3 g/t

A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSX: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the “Company” or “AIS) reports that the assay analysis from YDD1 at Neighbour’s Farm historic mine workings, the first diamond drill hole at its Yalgogrin Gold Project, NSW, Australia has been completed by SGS Australia. Extensive gold mineralisation was intersected from 58m through to the end of hole at 162.3m with gold mineralisation remaining open at depth and returning gold Intercepts over 87m averaging 1.5gt. The best individual grades returned up to 9.3 gt Au that are supported by consistent mineralisation hosted within the altered rock mass.

A summary of the intervals and average assays is set out below from the top of the core:

Resolution Minerals Ltd Drilling Program at Sunrise Gold Prospect Completed

Adelaide, Australia (ABN Newswire) – Resolution Minerals Ltd (ASX:RML) (FRA:NC3) is pleased to announce that it has completed the Company’s first drilling program on the Sunrise Gold Prospect at the 64North Project in Alaska. Drilling was conducted along an existing access road, targeting outcropping granite hosted mineralisation, analogous in style to Kinross’s Fort Knox Gold Mine, which is one of Alaska’s most profitable mines. The Sunrise Prospect was identified in 2020 by a RML trenching program and is located less than 5km from Northern Star’s operating Pogo Gold Mine.

Summary

– A 1400m long “fence line” of 27 shallow RAB drill holes designed to test outcropping mineralisation at the Sunrise Prospect has been completed.
