Future Battery Minerals (ASX: FBM) has commenced Phase 4B drilling activities in the northern area of its 100%-owned Kangaroo Hills Lithium Project (KHLP) in Western Australia.

 Phase 4B drilling programme commenced at Kangaroo Hills Lithium Project (KHLP) comprising up to 3,000m of Reverse Circulation (RC) drill testing of the interpreted north-easterly extension of the high-grade Big Red lithium mineralisation.

 The programme builds on recent successful step-out drilling of Big Red (Phase 4A), which demonstrated a further 65m of northern continuity via a project-best intercept of 31m @ 1.13% Li2O from 86m.

Big Red is a shallow, thick, gently dipping and high-grade lithium mineralised pegmatite. Highlight results include:

  • 29m @ 1.36% Li2O from 38m
  • 27m @ 1.32% Li2O from 64m
  • 23m @ 1.19% Li2O from 44m
  • 22m @ 1.24% Li2O from 23m

The latest drilling is expected to complete by mid-to-late June, with assays expected mid to late July.

Previous drilling success

In mid-May FBM announced results from Big Red Extension drilling demonstrate northern continuity of Big Red pegmatite, with best intercept to date returned of 31m @ 1.13% Li2O from 86m, including 20m @ 1.43% Li2O from 88m.

The company also revealed it has made a new pegmatites discovery (to be named “Potoroo”) in step-out drilling starting from approximately 200m north of Big Red Extension intercepts.
