Aim-listed AfriTin Mining has reported drill results for a final five holes drilled at the Uis mine, in Namibia, which demonstrate continuity of the V1/V2 pegmatite mineralisation at depth.

The highest combined metal (tin, lithium and tantalum) content intersection from the drilling contained 0.17% tin, 61 parts per million tantalum and 1.33% lithium oxide, over a 51 m intersection at a depth of between 201 m and 252 m.

The drill hole intersections demonstrate the continuity of mineralisation and a potential upgrade to resources at depth and support the company’s lithium and tantalum by-product initiatives.

CEO Anthony Viljoen says the high-grade intersections substantiate the company’s belief that AfriTin is poised to become a leading supplier of technology metals targeting a more diversified portfolio of production in future.

AfriTin will, in the coming weeks, initiate another drilling programme to align the lithium and tantalum resource confidence intervals with the confidence for tin in the current mineral resource estimate.
