Mining Capital's Alastair Ford discusses Cornish Lithium's recent £1.4mln raise via crowdfunding describing it as an 'unqualified success'.
More than 1,200 new investors took part - many of them based in Cornwall.
Ford say it now puts the company in a firm position to get on and drill its lithium brines they've been targeting.
''These are very deep so there's going to be a significantly-sized drill rig going down to the project within a couple of weeks and the idea is to get drilling in November''.
''If they hit what they think they're going to hit it could be a significant leap forward for them''.
