Piedmont recently increased its exploration land position by 184 acres to 1,383 acres at the Piedmont project in North Carolina.

These acquisitions include properties within the Carolina TSB (122 acres) and preferred locations for the company’s concentrator and mine infrastructure (49 acres).

the new acreage has significant potential to add to the current resource of 16.2 million tonnes grading 1.12% lithium oxide defined on the Core Property.

Recent drilling suggests mineralisation continues into the new acreage.
