Lithium Australia (ASX: LIT) continues to advance its joint venture with Tin International, focused on Germany.

LIT has commenced due diligence on the Sadisdorf project, which is part of a package of tenements under the agreement.

Work will initially focus on the historic Sadisdorf tin mine where pervasive greisens are known to contain abundant lithium mineralisation in the form of zinnwaldite, a mineral ideally suited to processing with LIT’s 100% owned Sileach™ process.

Sileach™ is a lithium extraction technology.


Next steps

The joint venture aims to extend and upgrade the existing Sadisdorf JORC Inferred Resource of 3.36 million tonnes at 0.44% tin at a cut-off of 0.25% tin, and to delineate a lithium resource which is anticipated to be associated with the tin mineralisation.

LIT said that the tin orebody is thought to contain the order of 15% zinnwaldite.

This is a prime target for supply of lithium into the European battery industry.


Analysis

The joint venture with Tin International provides Lithium Australia with a low-cost entry into an established JORC Resource albeit originally established for tin.

Next steps will be followed closely to observe the potential for lithium.
