Bradda Head announces further results from Arizona lithium drilling

Bradda Head Lithium Ltd, the North America-focused lithium development group, has announced further results from the Phase 2 core drilling at San Domingo (SD), Arizona.

This is the third and final set of assays released from the company’s 18 950 ft programme, completed 2 December 2023 and focuses on the Morning Star and Morning Star South targets, located southwest of the Central Targets. The programme has delivered an abundance of encouraging results over the December holiday break.

Ian Stalker, Executive Chair, commented:

“As we reach the end of this current San Domingo drilling exploration programme, our objectives have been met and indeed surpassed and, as a result our expectations heightened. It is worth reflecting that total drilled metres at SD, from both programmes is only 13 076 m, covering less than 1% of the total property. These were the first two drilling programmes of any note undertaken at this historic and road accessible lithium mining camp in the USA. In today’s world, the return on investment in these two campaigns has been substantial and we will build on this as we move forward. In other words, when the Lithium market bounces back, as we believe it will, we will be ready to maximise value from our total Lithium Portfolio, including of course San Domingo. The strategic location in the USA of our ‘ready to move forward projects’ should not be discounted. America remains hungry for its own ‘home produced lithium!’

“Our portfolio of pegmatites is emerging as viable and potentially extractable near surface resources. The shallow and high-grade intercepts seen at Morning Star are very exciting and we look forward to building 3-D models that may lead to follow-up drilling later this year. The abundance of tantalum, tin, and beryllium are a bonus, potentially adding value to this maiden drill programme at Morning Star. The obvious LCT (lithium-caesium-tantalum geochemical signature, e.g., Kathleen Valley signature) style of mineralisation confirms our belief that we have a formidable district with massive upside potential.”

“The fact that Morning Star contains high grade lithium as well as being rich in tantalum, beryllium, tin with massive zones of potassium feldspar means that we could have an exciting, diverse and economic deposit. We have more 3D modelling to explore and, given what we have discovered to date, this could significantly change the way we examine not only Morning Star, but the rest of the San Domingo pegmatite trend within our 33km2 property.”

“Parallel to our field work, and complements to our team that delivered these results, we have streamlined our corporate overhead. The net effect of this combined effort – business management and technical know-how – means that despite a very poor Lithium market back drop we are now well placed financially and geologically to be able to move with speed and with our in-house skills to grow this investment opportunity. In the meantime, we continue with our ‘steady as she goes’ approach with no superfluous costs and intend to move back on the resource growth plan at Basin, Arizona.”
