  • Global Battery Metals (GBML) released field exploration assay results from its North-West Leinster Lithium Property in Ireland
  • Global Battery Metals’ President and CEO, Michael Murphy, sat down with Sabrina Cuthbert to discuss these results
  • Of the 66 total surface samples analyzed, assay results show that 47 returned grades above 1 per cent Li2O – with grades as high as 3.75 per cent and 3.63 per cent
  • The work focused on Prospecting Licence Area 1597, part of the company’s property exploration block where a 40-year-old report described a trench excavated at Knockeen Townlands exposed a 1.8-metre wide spodumene-bearing pegmatite vein
  • Global Battery Metals (GBML) was down 3.70 per cent, trading at C$0.13 per share

The work focused on Prospecting Licence Area 1597, part of the company’s property exploration block where a 40-year-old report described a trench excavated at Knockeen Townlands exposed a 1.8-metre wide spodumene-bearing pegmatite vein.

The current exploration program included an initial reconnaissance visit in July 2022, followed by a more detailed prospecting and lithogeochemical survey on two areas at Knockeen and Carriglead Townlands in December 2022.

  • Knockeen and Carriglead Prospects are reported at:
    • Knockeen: Out of a total of 56 samples, 41 samples graded above 1 per cent Li2O, of which 20 graded above 2 per cent Li2O and of which two graded above 3 per cent Li2O (Sample AES 63003 (3.63 per cent Li2O) and Sample AES 63033 (3.75 per cent Li2O))
    • Carriglead: out of a total of 10 samples, six samples graded above 1 per cent Li2O, of which one sample analyzed above 2 per cent Li2O (Sample AES63504 (2.09 per cent Li2O))
  • The program of intensive prospecting has consolidated the extent of the spodumene pegmatite boulder train at surface and significantly enhanced the resolution of the dispersion zone
  • The known extent of the boulder train is now over 1km in length from NE to SW, 0.5km from NW to SE and is still open in all directions at Knockeen

AES61137 Recon Sampling July 2022 3,550 0.76 Carriglead

Global Battery Metals’ President and CEO, Michael Murphy, sat down with Sabrina Cuthbert to discuss these results.

“The strong concentration of confirmed lithium-bearing pegmatites is helping the team target the source and plan a strong drilling campaign to test the limits of the Property. We look forward to receiving our overburden assay results.”

The company chose this property because of its significantly higher grades than nearby projects in stream sediments, with similar grades in soil samples.

Global Battery Metals Ltd. (GMBL) is a mineral exploration company with a focus on metals that make up and support the rapid evolution of battery power.

Global Battery Metals (GBML) was down 3.70 per cent, trading at C$0.13 per share.
