Aspiring lithium player Force Commodities (ASX:4CE) has unearthed some encouraging geology through an initial round of drilling at its Kanuka lithium project, located 5km south of AVZ Mineral’s major hardrock lithium licenses at the Manono-Kitotolo project.
Via an RC drilling campaign which consisted of 45 holes, totalling approximately 2,700m, Force has revealed all drill holes intersected multiple and parallel pegmatitic rock-types, which are prospective for lithium.
The drilling was conducted at the Kania Main Pegmatite and Kalombo Mushwima Prospect deposits.
The Kanuka project is jointly owned by Force Commodities, which owns a controlling 51 percent stake and established Congolese tin and tantalum miner MMR.
Assay results will be keenly awaited, with the core samples sent to ALS Johannesburg for review.
At the commencement of drilling at Kanuka, Force Head of Exploration, James Sullivan said:
The information we are gathering from the RC drilling program and the assay results from the previously completed auger program will greatly assist us in pinpointing the location and depth of holes in our maiden diamond drilling program – which will follow the RC program upon review of RC drilling results.”
The Kanuka project includes both a mining and exploration license, which together extend over an area of 194km2.
