Patriot Battery Metals Reports 52.2 Metres Of 3.34% Lithium Intercept At Corvette Property

Patriot Battery Metals (TSXV: PMET) continues to hit significant intercepts at its Corvette lithium property in Quebec. The company last night released its latest results ahead of the market open on the Australian Securities Exchange.

The latest results consist of a total of ten drill holes conducted at the CV5 Pegmatite, where drilling was focused on the eastern extent of the cluster. Highlights from the results include:

  • CV22-093: 52.2 metres of 3.34% Li2O (from 219.1 metres), including 15.0 metres of 5.10% Li2O
  • CV22-097: 9.4 metres of 2.20% Li2O (from 114.3 metres)
  • CV22-100: 131.2 metres of 1.96% Li2O (from 250.8 metres), including 57.0 metres of 2.97% Li2O

The highlight of the results, CV22-093, is said to have been the most easterly drill hole completed at the CV5 Pegmatite, and was conducted as a 100 metre step-out of hole CV22-083, which earlier this month was reported to have intersected 25.0 metres of 5.04% Li2O. The intersect is said to have confirmed the extension of the Nova Zone to the east, with strike now estimated at 350 metres, while remaining open to the east.
