Aim-listed Firering has started its 3 000 m reverse circulation (RC) drilling campaign at Atex, its flagship lithium project in Côte d’Ivoire.

The programme began at identified lithium-bearing pegmatite targets, highlighted as the next crucial phase for Atex.

The RC holes are expected to build upon significant intercepts obtained during the diamond drilling campaign in 2022 near Spodumene Hill, in addition to new targets identified by last year’s auger drilling campaign.

Drilling is expected to be completed in four to six weeks and details of pegmatite intercepts will be announced as they become available over the coming weeks.

“This next phase of drilling at Atex will be crucial to Firering as we look to rapidly advance the project and build on the highly encouraging results from the diamond drilling campaign undertaken in the fourth quarter of 2022, which demonstrated the first significant intercepts from Atex, including an intercept of 64 m at 1.24% lithium oxide near Spodumene Hill, which is truly exceptional and amongst the best intercepts reported at that time by our global peers.

“Although the RC programme is expected to conclude in four to six weeks, we will update the market as intercepts are made available over the coming weeks. Samples will be sent to Intertek for assaying and first assay results are expected during quarter one 2024,” says Firering CEO Yuval Cohen
