A 45-hole (9,000 metre) drilling program completed in late January was designed to increase the confidence of the ore reserve by infill drilling of the planned starter pit and to test for southern extensions of mineralisation outside of the current ore reserve.

Results received for the first 17 holes are highly encouraging with lithium and boron grades consistently higher than the ore reserve grades.

Further results from the 45-hole program are expected over the coming two months.
