Bradda Head Lithium Completes Drilling at Basin Project and Updates on San Domingo Pegmatite

Bradda Head Lithium Ltd (AIM:BHL)(TSX-V:BHLI), the North America-focused lithium development group, has announced the completion of the resource-expansion drilling program at its Basin Project in Arizona. Eight drill holes were completed on the Basin North target. This expansion could increase lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) resources to a minimum of 2.5 million tons.

Basin Project Results and Updates

The average drill hole depth was 285 meters (934 feet), identifying shallower clay targets. Following this drilling, a resource increase is anticipated within a 900 meters wide (east-west) by 1,780 meters long (north-south) area. This project has shown promising visual results, particularly the Upper Clay unit at 103 meters drilled in hole BND24-19.

Basin Project Permitting Update

A kick-off meeting with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was held to initiate the NEPA process for developing the Environmental Assessment (EA) Report. Upon approval, this will allow further drilling at the Basin West target.

San Domingo Pegmatite Project Exploration

A detailed exploration program is planned for the second half of this year at San Domingo. The focus will be on high-grade intercepts at Morning Star, White Ridge, and Midnight Owl. This includes rock, soil sampling, and geologic mapping. Targets such as Yellowstone and Dragon are identified for their high lithium content and potential growth.

San Domingo Project Progress

Exploration targets include the nearly 33 square kilometer property. Follow-up drilling will be done on last year’s high-grade drill holes and this year’s channel sampling results to test mineralization. The future plan involves geologic mapping, further sampling, and refining drilling targets.

Ian Stalker, Executive Chair, stated, “Now that drilling has concluded, we await geochemical results to support the MRE expansion. This is a promising clay project in west central Arizona, contributing to lithium expansion in the USA.”

Quality Assurance and Control

Core samples were supervised by Joey Wilkins, the Company’s COO. Samples were analyzed at SGS Laboratories in Burnaby, Canada. Certified standards ensured quality control, and Wilkins approved the technical disclosures in this release.

Bradda Head Lithium Ltd (AIM:BHL)(TSX-V:BHLI) has interests in several projects, primarily in Arizona, including the Basin and Wikieup Projects. The Basin East Project boasts substantial indicated and inferred mineral resources. Recognized on the AIM of the London Stock Exchange as BHL and on the TSX Venture Exchange as BHLI, Bradda Head strives to unlock value in lithium-rich regions of North America.
