Luisa Moreno, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are pleased that the drilling program is now under way and we will be spending the next four to six weeks performing exploratory drilling in two of the eight new target areas. An important asset of LAB is its metallurgy. The Property contains a high proportion of large and jumbo flakes from which a high purity concentrate was proven to be produced across all flakes by a simple flotation process. We also have the historical resource site that will be investigated as we prepare to build a resource.”
