Latin Resources Limited (ASX: LRS) (“Latin” or “the Company”) is pleased to confirm that drilling has commenced, with the top 90 metres of the first hole intersecting multiple zones of spodumene bearing pegmatites at the Company’s Salinas Lithium Project in Brazil (“Salinas” or the “Project”), where the Company has defined multiple priority drill targets in what has been described as a lithium corridor.


HIGHLIGHTS

  • The first diamond hole drilled at the Company's Salinas Lithium Project in Brazil has intersected three separate spodumene rich pegmatites down dip from high-grade outcropping lithium.
  • Potential new lithium discovery in one of the world’s best mining jurisdictions.
  • Priority drill targets were identified through surface sampling which returned high-grade results including 2.71% Li2O and 1.45% Li2O from spodumene bearing pegmatites, mapped over a strike length of over 1.2kilometres.
  • The Company plans to drill 14 diamond holes for a total of 2,000m of drilling in the first phase of drilling.
  • The Bananal Valley is located within the Minas Gerais state – a rich mining region of Brazil, and home to the Grotado Cirilio Project under development by CAD$1.3 billion market cap TSX-V listed Sigma Lithium Corporation.

Whilst drilling is ongoing to target depth, the Company is pleased to note that already three separate shallow-dipping spodumene pegmatites have been intersected in the first drill hole SADD001 (Appendix 1) (Figure 1).
