LIT’s managing director Adrian Griffin has also recently purchased rights on-market

Lithium Australia NL (ASX:LIT) plans to be drilling for lithium and vanadium at its Youanmi Project area in Western Australia before the month’s end.

In February 2019, fieldwork discovered extensive mineralisation with rock-chips grading 4.2% lithium oxide and anomalous caesium and tantalum values.

LIT proceed to define a significant vanadium resource using hisortical drilling results and survey assessment.

Up to 3,000 metres is planned to be drilled to evaluate the potential for an economic hard-rock lithium deposit.

At the same time, a drilling program will also be undertaken within the defined vanadium resource to further evaluate the high-grade sections.

Adrian Griffin buys rights on-market

LIT’s managing director Adrian Griffin said: “Despite the rich mineral endowment of the Youanmi province, lithium and vanadium have largely gone unnoticed.

“The vanadium resource established by Lithium Australia has shone a spotlight on the area, and we hope our l ithium drilling will do the same.”

Griffin yesterday also revealed that he purchased 192,347 rights in the company at 0.3 cents each.

The rights are related to the recent 1-for-6 renounceable rights issue priced at 6 cents to raise up to $6.5 million.
