Alliance restarts resource, exploration drilling at Bald Hill lithium mine

Alliance Mineral Assets Ltd. said March 18 that it restarted a resource and exploration drilling program at the Bald Hill lithium-tantalum mine in Western Australia.

The initial 350-hole, 60,000-meter program, which will be conducted over the next seven months, will include continuing infill drilling of areas that contain about 8.8 million tonnes of inferred resources, which may potentially add to Bald Hill mineral reserves.

The program will also include extensional drilling of known mineralized pegmatites, including the eastern extension, and exploratory drilling of the western outcropping lithium and tantalum pegmatites.

Alliance Managing Director Mark Calderwood said 80% of the drilling over the first three months will be infill drilling to allow further engineering, leading to potential increases to reserves and mine life.
