Australian listed Six Sigma Metals Ltd (ASX:SI6) has announced a high grade lithium intersection at their Shamva Lithium project in Zimbabwe. The drilling was conducted at the Bonnyvale prospect, which has now confirmed two high grade spodumene rich zones.
Major intersections of high-grade Li2O showed:
18BVRC003 8m @ 3.08% Li2O from 1m
Incl. 5m @ 4.38% Li2O from 2m
18BVRC005* 32m @ 1.42% Li2O from 0m
Incl. 12m @ 2.45% Li2O from 18m
Incl. 5m @ 3.83m% Li2O from 19m
The company also undertook a number of samples at the Lock Ness prospect, located in the northwest region of Shamva. The results included samples between 1.5-2.89% lithium as well as 4.71% and 4.82% in the south of Loch Ness.
Six Sigma’s management team said that the exploration program at Shamva had been a great success.
Non-executive director Steve Groves said: “Mapping and surface rock sampling have shown us that at least 5 large areas containing extensive lithium mineralisation at surface from multiple pegmatite dyke outcrops exist across the entire project area.
“Every one of the areas sampled to date has shown high-grade lithium with up to over 4% across multiple sample sites.
“The due diligence program included a small program of RC drilling to test one of the outcropping pegmatite dykes at the Bonnyvale area.
“This program was very successful in intersecting thick zones of high-grade mineralisation to at least 30 metres below surface and achieved everything it was designed to do.”
Six Sigma remains positive of future significant findings in the Bonnyvale area.
