Latin Resources (LRS) has secured additional tenure at the Colina prospect, within its Salinas lithium project in Brazil.

The company secured an extra 1.2 kilometres of the prospect’s southern strike extension, thereby doubling the strike length to over two kilometres.

To fast-track exploration, Latin has dispatched drill samples to the lab to begin preliminary metallurgical test work.

In addition, it has planned to target the interpreted extensions as part of its current 25,000-metre resource definition drilling campaign of over 100 holes.

The company said drilling continues to show promising results, with spodumene-rich pegmatites intersected in the drill core.

Exploration Manager Tony Greenaway said he was excited to explore the new area.

“We are very pleased to be able to secure this additional ground to the south of our Colina prospect, where drilling shows that our high-grade pegmatites are open and continue to the south in this direction,” he said.

The company plans to expand the current drilling program to include step-out drilling in order to outline the full extent of the pegmatites.

Shares in the company last traded at 6.5 cents each on July 12.
