Lithium Australia NL (ASX:LIT) is expected to complete its maiden drilling campaign at the Sadisdorf polymetallic tin-lithium project in Saxony, Germany, today.

The Sadisdorf project is located on the doorstep of the German automotive industry, which is gearing up to produce large numbers of electric vehicles having lithium-ion batteries.

Significantly, the Sadisdorf project has the potential to provide feed for a commercial scale SiLeach® lithium carbonate plant.

Lithium Australia’s SiLeach® technology efficiently digests and recovers all significant metal values from the minerals treated and can be applied to a wide range of lithium feedstock.

Assays pending for encouraging drill cores

A drilling program commenced at the Sadisdorf project in December 2017 to validate historical drilling data and increase confidence in future mineral resource estimates.

Geological logging of the core has shown encouraging visual indications. Completion of sampling and assaying of the remaining core will be a priority over April and May.

Unlocking the lithium potential of the historic tin-tungsten mine

The company is expected to provide a further update from Sadisdorf, including assay results from the completed drill program, in the coming weeks.

Lithium Australia managing director Adrian Griffin said: “The mineralisation encountered in the drilling to date supports our vision of unlocking the value of the historic tin-tungsten mine Sadisdorf by adding lithium as an additional value driver.

“Further metallurgical evaluation, including SiLeach® testing, will follow the drilling program with results being announced as they become available.”
