Global Lithium Resources (GL1) says a drilling contractor has mobilised to the Manna lithium project to begin a reverse circulation (RC) program.

Profile Drilling Services is a WA-based company which specialises in RC mineral exploration drilling as well as other mining services.

Global Lithium engaged Profile to complete 20,000 metres of drilling which marks the first drilling campaign the company has undertaken since it acquired the Manna project last December.

Based on an announcement to the market in late March, this drilling program has been slightly delayed as Global Lithium said it initially expected the program to commence in early April.

As it stands, the company is deploying a mobile camp at the project site for the geology team and drilling contractors, with drilling set to commence next week.

Ahead of drilling, the company undertook a detailed study aimed at expanding Manna’s lithium resource in this drilling effort.

Head of Geology Stuart Peterson said Global Lithium is confident Profile will complete drilling on budget and on time.

“Profile’s mobilisation to the Manna lithium project takes us a key step closer to commencing drilling at the site, an important milestone for the company,” Mr Peterson said.

“We are excited to be on the verge of having exploration programs underway at our two lithium assets in tier-one WA jurisdictions with the RC campaign at the Marble Bar lithium project also continuing.”

Drill results from Manna will be used to complete an updated mineral resource estimate later this year.

Company shares were down 4.26 per cent to trade at $1.69 at 1:41 pm AEST.
