Piedmont Lithium Releases Its March 2020 Quarterly Report

Piedmont Lithium Limited (ASX:PLL; NASDAQ:PLL) is pleased to present its March 2020 quarterly report.

Piedmont Lithium Limited (ASX:PLL; NASDAQ:PLL) (“Piedmont” or “Company”) is pleased to present its March 2020 quarterly report. Highlights during and subsequent to the quarter were:

  • Hatch continues to progress its work on the chemical plant pre-feasibility study (“PFS”) for the Company’s Piedmont Lithium Project (“Project”) in the United States and remains on track for delivery in Q2 2020. The chemical plant PFS will provide refined estimates of our capital and operating costs and should reinforce our position as a low-cost US-based producer of lithium hydroxide.
  • Lithium hydroxide testwork on samples of spodumene concentrate produced from the Project’s ore is progressing SGS laboratories in Canada. Work has been delayed due to impacts related to COVID-19, however the delay is not expected to impact our overall development timeline. The final process flowsheet has been determined samples will soon be ready for delivery to prospective customers.
  • Chemical plant permitting activities continue, with background studies to be used in the chemical plant permit applications proceeding on schedule. We plan to submit these permit applications shortly after completion of the chemical plant PFS and expect to receive these permits by the end of 2020.
  • Continued numerous preliminary off-take, financing and strategic conversations, including companies from the lithium, mining, chemicals, battery, automotive and private equity sectors.
  • Soil and rock chip sampling at the Project in North Carolina, United States, led to the discovery of five new spodumene-bearing pegmatites in areas that have not previously been explored.
  • Assays from the final 19 drill holes of the Phase 4 drilling program at the Project’s Central and Core properties intersected significant mineralization, including 36.0m @ 1.11% Li2O and 44.9m @ 1.30% Li2O in Hole 19-CT-19, 13.0m @ 1.28% Li2O and 7.3m @ 1.37% Li2O in Hole 19-CT-26, and 14.8m @ 1.55% Li2O and 12.4m @ 1.02% Li2O in Hole 19-BD-332.

Next steps:

  • Complete the chemical plant PFS and a fully integrated Scoping Study Update in Q2 2020.
  • Finalize the bench scale lithium hydroxide testwork program and produce initial product samples in Q2 2020.
  • Submit key chemical plant permit applications including a synthetic minor source air permit application.
  • Build out project construction and sales & marketing teams.
  • Continue offtake discussions for lithium hydroxide and by-product quartz, feldspar and mica.
  • Continue to evaluate strategic partnering options.

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.
