Core has taken a major step forward during the reporting period in its goal to become a major Australian lithium producer through the delivery of its Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) for the Grants Lithium Deposit, a key component of the Company's wholly-owned Finniss Lithium Project, located near Darwin in the Northern Territory.
During the reporting period Core also:
- Upgraded the Resource for its Grants Lithium Deposit which more than doubled the size of the Indicated Resource and substantially increased the Resource confidence
- RC and diamond core infill drilling continue to demonstrate the remarkable consistency of high-grade spodumene intersections and capacity to increase the resource at the Grants Deposit
- Established a maiden Mineral Resource estimate for the BP33 Lithium Deposit, which further increased the overall Mineral Resources of the Finniss Lithium Project in the Northern Territory to 3.45 million tonnes @ 1.4% Li2O
