Lithium Australia NL (ASX:LIT) is undertaking a diamond drilling program at its Sadisdorf Lithium Project in Germany.

The two hole, 460-metre program is designed to validate historical drilling data and increase confidence in future mineral resource estimates.

Significantly, drilling may also lead to some of the resource being upgraded from the Inferred to Indicated category, and expansion of the mineral resource.

The drill program follows the recent release of a promising maiden resource at Sadisdorf.

The recent maiden resource has the potential to provide processing capacity for circa 25,000 tonnes per annum of lithium carbonate equivalent output for 10 years

Lithium Australia is farming into a joint venture at Sadisdorf in southeast Germany with German firm Tin International AG.

First drilling since 1990

Adrian Griffin, managing director, said: "This is the first drilling at the Sadisdorf project since 1990.

"The initial holes will not only duplicate historic drill holes but also target mineralised zones outside the current mineral resource estimate.

"This work will progress our goal of breathing new life into the Sadisdorf project and potentially supplying raw materials to the European battery industry.”
