Lake Resources NL Kachi Drilling to Support Production Increase

Brisbane, Australia (ABN Newswire) – Clean lithium developer Lake Resources NL (ASX:LKE) (FRA:LK1) (OTCMKTS:LLKKF) is expanding drilling and testing beyond that required for the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) at the Company’s flagship Kachi Lithium Brine Project, Argentina amid strong demand for its high purity, sustainably produced product.

The aim is to accelerate the conversion of Inferred Resources to Measured and Indicated (M&I) Resources, to allow for an expansion beyond the 25,500 tonnes per annum (tpa) lithium carbonate planned in the DFS. The current drilling seeks to convert resources to reserves as part of the DFS work.

Initially a diamond drill program of four wells from four platforms for 1,600m will be conducted, together with brine and sediment sampling and pump testing to refine the resource estimations for a conversion to reserves, with economic assumptions. Drilling will commence within approximately two weeks, following COVID-19 controls and procedures.

Australia’s 5 Most Valuable Mineral Exports

Australia’s economy is largely based on its natural resources, with the minerals sector making the greatest contribution to the nation’s exports.

Four of Australia’s states and territories rank in the top 20 mining jurisdictions in the world, according to the Fraser Institute’s latest annual survey of mining companies: Western Australia (fourth), Southern Australia (seventh), Queensland (16th) and the Northern Territory (19th).

These mining jurisdictions demonstrate a high level of investment attractiveness mainly due to their mineral-rich geology, solid infrastructure, stellar economic environment and government support for the resources industry at both the federal and state level.

Newcrest Mining Limited – Exploration Update 10 June 2021

Highlights

  • At Red Chris, drilling continues to expand the higher grade mineralisation intersected at East Ridge and in the Main Zone:
    • At East Ridge, the new discovery adjacent to the East Zone, drilling continues to expand the footprint of the higher grade mineralisation with RC688 returning 344m @ 0.70g/t Au & 0.75% Cu from 776m, incl. 170m @ 1.1g/t Au & 1.1% Cu from 892m. This hole is 100m east of the discovery hole RC678 (previously reported).
    • East Ridge is located 300m east of East Zone and outside of Newcrest's Red Chris Mineral Resource Estimate. Drilling to define the extent of the higher grade mineralisation is ongoing.
    • In the Main Zone, drilling has intersected high grade mineralisation with RC683 returning 300m @ 0.41g/t Au & 0.51% Cu from 260m, incl. 114m @ 0.67g/t Au & 0.85% Cu from 390m, incl. 22m @ 1.1g/t Au & 1.4% Cu from 464m. This hole is 100m east of RC679 (previously reported).
