IronRidge Resources Limited, the African focussed minerals exploration company, is pleased to report multiple high-grade reverse circulation (‘RC’) drilling intersections from the third phase drilling programme at the Ewoyaa, Abonko and Kaampakrom projects within the Cape Coast Lithium Portfolio in Ghana, West Africa.
Total 12,669m of RC drilling was completed in 97 drill holes for the third phase programme.
Results at Ewoyaa and Abonko have extended known mineralisation along strike and at depth from previously reported results with mineralisation remaining open in most directions
Visual observations from RC drill chips and diamond drill core confirms coarse spodumene as the dominant lithium mineral
New discovery was also confirmed at Kaampakrom; 1km north of Ewoyaa.
Commenting on the Company’s latest progress, Len Kolff, Chief Operating Officer of IronRidge, said:
“We are delighted with the third phase drilling results, which will be incorporated into the MRE and have significantly enhanced the Ewoyaa North-East target as well as extended the Ewoyaa Main and Abonko targets. First pass high-grade results returned for Kaampakrom confirm the new discovery 1km north of Ewoyaa, and significantly the potential for additional spodumene pegmatite discoveries within the tenement portfolio.
“We returned our highest grade 1m drill interval to date at 4.47% Li2O in hole GRC0164 within the Ewoyaa North-East target; this represents a near solid 1m interval of spodumene.
“We are now working towards delivering our maiden MRE in Q1 2020. In the meantime, field teams continue to develop and advance the project portfolio with ongoing regional exploration programmes, baseline monitoring and drill site re-vegetation works.”
