Bradda Head Lithium starts new drilling programme in Arizona
Bradda Head Lithium Limited (AIM:BHL, OTCQB:BHLIF, TSX-V:BHLI) said it has mobilised a sonic drilling rig to commence its 2023 drilling programme at the Basin Project in Arizona
Up to 25 holes will be drilled in the coming months at Basin East Extension (BEE), and Basin North (BN) with the intention to cover as much of the project's 17 square kilometre (sq km) area as possible, Bradda Head said.
To date, around 1.4 sq km of the area has been drilled, leading to a Mineral Resource of 371,000 tonnes of LCE, the junior added.
“The current resource remains open to the west, north-west and north of where we have drilled to date," said Charles FitzRoy, chief executive in a statement.
“This first programme of 2023 will enable us to expand our current resource into more of our 17sq km Basin Project in Arizona.
“Drilling at Basin East Extension and Basin North are the next steps in proving up a resource over the total 17 sq km claim package at Basin, where we have an exploration target of up to 6Mt LCE and a current resource of 371kt LCE covering an area of only 1.2 sq km," he added.
