Strong lithium results
The company received the first assay results from 10 of 15 drill holes completed in December 2020, which have intersected substantial thickness of the flat-lying sediments hosting lithium mineralisation at the McDermitt Project in Oregon, US on February 1.
Most of the holes were mineralised over the entire sedimentary package encountered, returning 126.5 metres at 1,397 ppm lithium and 120.4 metres at 1,440 ppm lithium.
Other notable results include 9.2 metres at 2,243 ppm lithium, including 15.3 metres at 2,459 ppm, 18.3 metres at 1,192 from 58 metres and 30.5 metres at 1,939 from 397 metres, including 29 metres at 2164 from 97.6 metres.
The inauguration of President-elect Biden has focused investor attention on his election commitment for the United States to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and the development of large, strategic lithium projects are a core element of this strategy.
Several battery factory developments have been announced or proposed in the US and McDermitt is well-placed to emerge as a future source of lithium for those projects.
