- Savannah Resources said reconnaissance rockchip sampling over its new lithium projects in Finland, Somero and Erajarvi, has returned anomalous lithium results.


- 4 weeks of an 8-10 week reconnaissance geological mapping and rockchip sampling programme has been completed

- A total of 70 rockchip samples have been collected to date and submitted to the laboratory for analysis, with 3 assay results returned to date

- Initial analysis, geological mapping and rock chip sampling has highlighted: Somero Project has prospective pegmatites up to 1,200m long and 50m wide with an initial rockchip assay of 4% lithium oxide ('Li2O'); Erajarvi Project has prospective pegmatites up to 800m long and 30m wide with an initial rockchip assay of 1.29% Li2O

- Key lithium minerals petalite, spodumene and lepidolite were all identified in hand specimens

- The remaining assays are expected to be received over the next four to six weeks and the results will be announced as soon as practicable thereafter

- Finland is one of the most prospective countries on mainland Europe for potential lithium discoveries. Both project areas have excellent access to high quality infrastructure and are located close to potential final customers
