Sayona Mining (ASX:SYA) is closing in on drill targets after resuming exploration at its Mallina project located in the world-class Pilgangoora lithium district of Western Australia.

Exploration has identified a coarse spodumene pegmatite where a recent rock assay of 3.47% lithium oxide was sampled.

Spodumene has now been identified in three main pegmatite swarms within a 1x1 kilometre area.

Submissions for the statutory approval to allow drilling have been lodged and preliminary drill programs designed.

Further geochemical sampling, to help identify mineralisation under the shallow cover which affects much of the project area will also be carried as soon as ground conditions allow.

Corey Nolan, CEO, commented: “The company is very encouraged by the continuing identification of prospective spodumene pegmatites.

“It is anticipated the planned geochemistry and geophysics will be quickly followed up by drill testing.”
