IN BRIEF: Galileo drill results show lithium enhancement at Kamativi

19th Mar 2024 14:03

Galileo Resources PLC - Mining company focused on Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa - Says phase one drill results for its 80% owned Kamativi lithium-tin project in Zimbabwe show "extensive" lithium enhancement. Results peak at 1.0% of lithium oxide over four metres. Adds that geological mapping and prospecting have identified mineralisation/alteration in pegmatites over at least 1.5 kilometre strike length, which has only been partially drill tested to date. Chief Executive Officer Colin Bird says: "An unusual feature of this discovery is the spread of highly anomalous lithium through the mica schist host rock, as opposed to being solely contained within the pegmatite. We have no doubt that discordant pegmatites are the drivers to lithium content and our mapping programmes have located more discordant pegmatites than previously recognised. On the basis that the nearby Kamativi mine was a long-producing tin operation it comes as no surprise that we also see anomalous tin associated with these discordant pegmatites, in some cases coincident with lithium."
