Planned Start Of Phase 1 Drill Program At The Gorge Lithium Project

Balkan Mining and Minerals Ltd (ASX: BMM; “BMM” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the start of the phase 1 drill program at the Gorge Lithium Project located in Ontario, Canada (the "Gorge Lithium Project" or the "Project").


Highlights

  • Gorge drilling campaign to test outcropping spodumene pegmatite at Koshman and Nelson lithium occurrences.
  • BMM plans to initially drill up to 12 diamond drill (DD) holes for a total downhole length of up to 1,000m to systematically test the vertical plunge extensions along prospective pegmatite strike.
  • BMM’s active engagement and communication with local First Nation communities has enabled the acceleration of pre-drilling and preparation activities.
  • Clearing of access trails and site preparation works to commence with drilling scheduled to begin in the first half of September.

The drill program has been designed to systematically test the vertical plunge extensions along strike of outcropping high-grade lithium pegmatites at the Nelson and Koshman occurrences. The phase 1 program comprises up to 1,000m of drilling across an area with very favourable initial results from systematic sampling programs that have identified multiple targets.

A total of six (6) Diamond Drill (DD) holes have been planned to be carried out at the Nelson pegmatite occurrence which will concentrate on the anomalies identified from previous channel sampling results, which included 1.8m @ 3.75% Li2O, further confirming significant potential of this project (see ASX Announcement dated 16 December 2022).

Glencore Deal Validates Galan Lithium’s Chloride Concentrate Strategy, Exec Says

Following its recent financing agreement with mining giant Glencore (LSE:GLEN,OTC Pink:GLCNF), Galan Lithium (ASX:GLN,FWB:9CH) is now fully funded to complete construction of its Hombre Muerto West (HMW) project in Argentina and become the next lithium producer in the Lithium Triangle, according to Managing Director Juan Pablo Vargas de la Vega.

“To date, Galan (has) directly invested more than $20 million (in HMW), and the investment or financing solution from Glencore will allow us to pretty much complete the project,” de la Vega said.

“More importantly, this cements Galan’s strategy to produce lithium chloride concentrate. Everyone else in the Lithium Triangle is producing or going to be producing lithium carbonate. So the fact that Glencore has partnered with us to buy the chloride concentrate … shows that the lithium chloride concentrate strategy is a valid one.”
