These prospects were discovered during Core’s 2019 regional exploration program on the Finniss Project.
Hendersons West Prospect
Hendersons West prospect is within 2 kilometres of Grants and has been mapped using shallow auger drilling.
Shallow drill testing indicates that the pegmatite is likely to be mineralised at depth. Two deep reverse circulation (RC) step-back holes are proposed to test the fresh portion of this target.

McGrants lies only 700 metres west of Grants and was discovered after follow-up of soil anomalies and regional RAB (rotary air blast) drill traverses.

RC drilling of these two spodumene pegmatite prospects is planned to commence in coming weeks.
Core also continues to undertake regional exploration via conventional mapping, auger mapping, RAB traversing, soil sampling and ultimately RC drill testing across the larger Finniss Lithium Project area.
