Lithium exploration and development company Atlantic Lithium has announced the addition of 8 000 m of drilling targeting resource growth to the ongoing 2023 programme and further assay results from the resource and metallurgical drilling programme underway at the Ewoyaa lithium project, in Ghana.

The ongoing drilling programme has increased by 43% with the addition of 8 000 m of extensional resource drilling targeting resource growth following the grant of the mining lease for the project.

The planned 18 500 m programme increased to a total of 26 500 m, targeted for completion in the second quarter of 2024, of which 16 164 m has been reported to date, including the latest results.

Further assay results have been received for 2 362 m of resource and metallurgical reverse circulation and diamond core drilling completed at Ewoyaa as part of the broader 2023 planned drilling programme.

The high-grade infill and extensional drill intersections reported at the Ewoyaa Main, Anokyi and Ewoyaa South-2 deposits are designed to provide metallurgical drill core while infilling the resource and extending mineralisation.

The reported assay results extend mineralisation at the Ewoyaa Main deposit, outside of the current 35.3-milllion tonnes at 1.25% lithium oxide Ewoyaa mineral resource estimate in hole GDD0093.

The shallow high-grade infill drill intersections at Ewoyaa Main, Anokyi and Ewoyaa South-2 were reported as downhole intercepts, with estimated true widths included in the intersections table, including highlights at a 0.4% lithium oxide cut-off.
