United Lithium Corp has released additional assay results from the ongoing drill program at the Bergby Lithium Project in Sweden, showcasing the potential of the hard rock lithium deposits in the region.
Highlights of the new drilling assays for the recently discovered fourth pegmatite ‘D’ include 1.05% lithium oxide (Li2O) over 32.75 meters (m), with 2.42% Li2O over 7.04m.
“These additional results on the recently discovered fourth lithium-bearing pegmatite D at Bergby further demonstrate the attractive grades and thicknesses we are seeing near surface on multiple pegmatites,” United president and CEO Scott Eldridge said in a statement.
“Pegmatite D has now demonstrated a strike length of over 700 metres and remains open, the combined strike of the pegmatites now exceeds four kilometres. We anticipate further results on 35 more drill holes pending assay results from both pegmatite D and E, where both had never been drill tested prior to the current program.”
United Lithium noted that the 2023 Bergby Drill Program, utilizing two diamond drill rigs, has made significant progress since its commencement in April 2023. With 5,600 meters of diamond drilling completed across 60 holes, the program has uncovered six spodumene-bearing pegmatites, five of which have been drilled. The initial set of assay results was released in November 2023, showcasing the project’s prospectivity.
The current results report on 10 drill holes completed across the north-northeast striking Pegmatite D, providing insights into its dimensions and mineralization. Further assay results are pending for the remainder of mineralized intersections encountered in Pegmatite D and all intervals for Pegmatite E. Pegmatite F remains to be drilled as part of the current program.
“Our exploration team continues to deliver highly encouraging results as we unlock the potential of the Project,” Eldridge continued.
“Bergby is encompassed by world-class mining infrastructure contributing to efficient exploration costs. We look forward to releasing the next batch of results once we receive assays back from the lab.”
United Lithium is an exploration and development company energized by the global demand for lithium. It is targeting lithium projects in politically safe jurisdictions with advanced infrastructure that allows for rapid and cost-effective exploration, development, and production opportunities.
