Leinster Lithium Project: Global Battery Metals Launches Trenching Program

Global Battery Metals Ltd. (TSXV: GBML) (OTCQB: REZZF) has announced the immediate start of a trenching and assay sampling program at its Knockeen lithium pegmatite project in Ireland. The company has secured a permit for trenching to further explore the lithium-rich pegmatite dike, aiming to enhance 3D visualization and collect 30-40 assay samples over the next few weeks.

Exploration Program Details

The trench will measure 50 meters in length, 1-2 meters deep, and up to 1.5 meters wide, targeting the spodumene-bearing pegmatite dike. This initiative follows the successful identification of a Lithium-Cesium-Tantalum (LCT) pegmatite system through recent drilling, which intersected 24 intervals of lithium-bearing spodumene pegmatites.

Historical Context and Future Plans

Historical reports from the 1970s documented the presence of a spodumene-bearing pegmatite dike at the site. The current trenching work will inform the exploration strategy for 2024. Michael Murphy, CEO of Global Battery Metals, expressed confidence in the project’s potential following consistent lithium intersects in the initial drilling phase.

Geological Significance

The Leinster Lithium Project is strategically located along a regional structural trend known for lithium-bearing pegmatite occurrences. The Knockeen target area is situated within the East Carlow Deformation Zone (ECDZ), a key structural zone for lithium pegmatite emplacement.

Commitment to Environmental Standards

Global Battery Metals adheres to stringent environmental practices, having completed a detailed GSRO ‘Appropriate Assessment’ process, ensuring exploration activities meet the highest standards of environmental protection.
