Mineral exploration company Lithium Consolidated (Li3) has updated the market on its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company says travel restrictions have had a material affect on planned fieldwork schedules and therefore has temporarily paused field activities.

Instead, it will be focusing on technical and data work such as legacy data, processing data collected during the first quarter of 2020, drill targets and project studies.

In line with the recommendations by the Government and health authorities, the company has limited physical interactions and stopped non-essential travel.

The current conditions have so far caused minimal impact to Lithium Consolidated. In addition, the company has encouraged its staff to undertake ongoing professional development and training.

“Lithium Consolidated remains vigilant in monitoring the COVID-19 crisis and is prepared to act swiftly should further measures be necessary,” the company told the market.
