Askari Metals Limited has announced the identification of an extensive pegmatite zone at the OP target through trench mapping carried out on site at the Uis Lithium Project in Namibia, Africa.

Commenting on the OP pegmatite trench mapping results, Chief Exploration and Project Manager (Africa), Mr Cliff Fitzhenry, stated: “Trench mapping of the OP target has yielded significantly better than expected results with a zone of multiple pegmatites mapped over a strike length of approximately 2 km.

The pegmatite zone comprises a main pegmatite body along with several smaller bodies which are interpreted to be bifurcating offshoots from the main body. The main pegmatite body averages 10 m thick over the total approximately 2 km strike length which includes a thicker “south-west zone” where the main body is up to 26 m thick and averages 21 m thick over a 350 m strike length.

“The OP pegmatites are of the LCT type and occur within the previously defined, highly prospective “Corridor of Interest” which comprises highly fractionated, fertile LCT type pegmatites. The channel sampling across the OP pegmatites is well advanced and assays are being fast tracked through the laboratory. These will be released to the market as soon as we start receiving them back, likely later this month. Pending positive results, a diamond drill rig will be mobilised during 1Q24 for maiden drill testing of the OP pegmatites.”
