Premier1 breaks ground at lithium project


Premier1 Lithium, an explorer focused on Western Australia, has completed the first drilling program at its Abbotts North project.

Results of the drilling campaign show elevated lithium across the stacked pegmatites of up to 0.41 per cent lithium, confirming the continuation of the lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) system down depth and along strike.

In addition, the data indicates that LCT pegmatites occur within the granites to the north of the drill area. Further mapping and sampling in these areas as well as over the remaining tenement package has commenced.

Premier1 is now focused on delineating drill targets of higher grades and greater thickness that have the potential to form a significant lithium deposit within the existing LCT system.

Premier1 is fully funded for any subsequent phase two drilling program.

“Our strategic exploration approach in this world-class mining jurisdiction is driven by a commitment to uncover valuable resources efficiently and effectively,” the company said.

“Our projects are situated in the heart of Western Australia’s renowned greenstone belts, home to the world’s largest lithium-bearing LCT pegmatite deposits.

“Abbotts North is a premier exploration project with outcropping lithium bearing pegmatites.

“Beyond Abbotts North, we have a pipeline of promising projects.”
