Leading Edge kicks off follow-up drill program at Bergby

Leading Edge received permits last month that allow for up to 48 further drill sites
LEM is looking to confirm that mineralisation extends for far more than 600 metres along strike

Explorer Leading Edge Materials Corp (CVE:LEM) has kicked off a second drill program at its Bergby lithium project in Sweden as it looks to build on the “excellent” results from the first round of drilling.

A small 18-hole drill program earlier this summer confirmed that mineralisation at the project extends for more than 600 metres along strike.

Since then, Leading Edge has been granted drill permits that allows for up to 48 new drill sites.

This second drill program will look to expand the area of lithium mineralisation and collect samples for metallurgical testwork.

It is anticipated that this drill program will be approximately 900m of targeted drilling.

Lithium mineralized outcrops and boulders are known from a strike length of more than 1.5km, more than twice the strike that has been drill tested to date.

‘An exciting prospect’

“Bergby has rapidly shaped up as a highly ranked lithium project in the Nordic region,” said chief executive Blair Way.

“Following our previous drill success, we have moved quickly to access the permits and the drill rig needed to advance this exciting prospect.

“The lithium mineralized pegmatite remains open in all directions, and the along strike and down dip potential will be well tested by this program.”

Bergby discovered last year

 Bergby was discovered by the Leading Edge Materials team early in 2016, and has already thrown up both high grades and a high hit rate of potentially mineralized pegmatite.

It lies in central Sweden, 25km north of the town of Gavle, secured by three exploration licenses that cover a total of 1,903 hectares (Ha).

The site is close to infrastructure, with major roads, rail and power supply passing immediately adjacent to the claim boundaries.

Shares were up 2.47% to C$0.83  on Thursday.
