- Savannah Resources said recent drilling had discovered a new higher-grade lithium-bearing pegmatite body at its Mina do Barroso lithium project in Portugal.

The discovery was made about 2 kilometres to the south east of the Grandao deposit, bringing total discoveries to five with further targets still to be tested.

Highlights included intercepting 21 metres at 1.50% lithium oxide from 34 metres.

'The discovery of this new higher grade Aldeia Block A pegmatite is likely to add further tonnage to the overall mineral resource inventory of the Mina do Barroso project, which currently stands at 20.1m tonnes with low impurities,' chief executive David Archer said.
