AVZ Minerals Limited (ASX: AVZ) has received further strong results from its Mineral Resource drilling programme at the Manono Lithium and Tin Project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
The company has received results from the second four diamond drill holes at the Roche Dure North-East Extension drilling programme.
- Further widespread, high-grade spodumene lithium mineralization (including 144.5m @ 1.75% Li2O & 934ppm Sn and 172.3m @ 1.57@ Li2O & 702ppm Sn) confirmed from second four of 46 planned resource drill holes at Roche Dure North-East Extension
- 58 samples returned values greater than two per cent Li20 including two individual samples grading greater than three per cent Li2O with the highest value being from hole MO22DD005 from 8.7 metres to 10 metres downhole grading 3.41% Li2O
- Drilling results from Section 8,200mN provide further evidence of Roche Dure orebody dipping at significantly shallower angles
- Drilling fleet joined by a fourth diamond drill rig
“The second lot of four holes drilled at Roche Dure continue to demonstrate solid grade continuity both along strike and down dip from the current open pit design,” Managing Director, Nigel Ferguson, said.
“Thirty-three holes have now been completed with 25 holes sampled and dispatched to the laboratory in Perth.
“We secured the services of a fourth diamond rig in October which will assist to increase the progress being made on our comprehensive drilling programme.”
