Galileo begins drill programme in Kamativi Lithium Project

By Leafias Mazviro

Galileo Resources PLC (AIM: GLR) has wasted no time in taking action after its ground-breaking discovery earlier this year.

The company has commenced a drill program at the Kamativi target in Zimbabwe, where it uncovered a previously unknown lithium anomaly in soils and streams in March.

This proactive move reflects Galileo Resources’ commitment to capitalising on its significant findings and further exploring the potential of the Kamativi lithium project.

With excitement mounting in the industry, all eyes are on Galileo Resources as they embark on this promising phase of exploration and development.

A contract has been signed by company for a diamond drilling programme following on the discovery of a substantial lithium anomaly in soil on the Kamativi licence EPO 1782 adjoining the historic Kamativi tin/tantalum mine which contains a significant lithium tailings resource.

The Kamativi soil anomaly extends over a strike length of almost 3 kilometers and is comparable to the footprint of the Arcadia lithium project near Harare, considered to be one of the world’s biggest hard rock lithium resources, noted Galileo.

In a statement, Colin Bird, Galileo’s chairman and chief executive, said: “We have quickly moved from the discovery of a widespread lithium soil anomaly to the commencement of a drill program at Kamativi.

“The anomaly is substantial, and we believe it is highly significant that the target is comparable in size to other large lithium deposits including the 42,3 Arcadia deposit also located in Zimbabwe.

“We will quickly evaluate the target with an initial drill program to test the stacked lithium-bearing pegmatites and results will determine the extent of follow-up drilling.

“The program will also assess tin prospectively as the recent soil and rock chip program also identified areas anomalous in tin”.

Kamativi covers an area of 520 square kilometers in western Zimbabwe. Galileo can earn an 80 percent interest by spending a combined total of US$1,5 million on exploration and evaluation by 21 July 2024.
