Lithium aspirant gets underway in WA

Premier1 Lithium

Premier1 Lithium has commenced drilling at its flagship Abbotts North project near Meekatharra in Western Australia.

Approximately 2000m of reverse circulation (RC) drilling is planned to test the depth and extent of the mineralised pegmatite field at the Buttamiah prospect, with several parallel lithium-bearing pegmatites of interest.

“We are excited that the first drill program is now underway, and we look forward to testing the compelling LCT (lithium-caesium-tantalum) pegmatite targets at Abbotts North,” Premier1 chief executive officer Richard Taylor said.

“The team has worked hard to achieve all required milestones to commence drilling so soon after funds were received from the recent capital raise.”

Following a $3 million share placement, SensOre was renamed Premier1 Lithium in early February.

Premier1 will use SensOre’s data cube and machine learning technology to support exploration of Abbotts North and other lithium projects in WA including Montague, Yalgoo and Gecko North.

Abbotts North has returned rock chips samples as high as 1.25 per cent lithium oxide (Li20).

“Outcropping pegmatites in the vicinity of the anomalous area are on average two–three metres wide, up to 350m long and returned up to 1.25 per cent Li20 in surface rock chip samples,” SensOre said in December.

“The pegmatites can be traced under cover to the east over an area of 1.5km within the main Buttamiah prospect.”

Premier1 hopes to complete its maiden drill program at Abbotts North in February.
