Spodumene Rich Pegmatite Intersections Confirmed From Surface at MetalsTech’s Cancet Lithium Project

Cobalt and lithium developer MetalsTech Limited (ASX:MTC) is pleased to announce exceptional results from its first phase diamond drilling exploration program at the Company’s 100%-owned Cancet Lithium Project in Quebec, Canada.

Highlights:
•    Heavily spodumene mineralised pegmatite confirmed in multiple drill holes at Cancet starting at surface suggesting the presence of a high-grade lithium mineralised pegmatite structure with low operating-cost open cut mining potential
•    25 diamond drill holes reported with 220 diamond drill core samples sent to Activation Laboratories in Ontario for multi-element analysis including lithium and tantalum – results expected in the coming weeks
•    Exceptional near surface drilling results have been encountered, including:
o    57.0m (from 15.0m to 72.0m) mineralised pegmatite intersection within hole MTC17-010 with a spodumene mineralisation estimate of 20%
o    27.5m (from 0.0m to 27.5m) mineralised pegmatite intersection within hole MTC17-015 with a spodumene mineralisation estimate of 45%
o    26.4m (from 0.0m to 26.4m) mineralised pegmatite intersection within hole MTC17-021 with a spodumene mineralisation estimate of 20%
o    25.3m (from 28.5m to 53.8m) mineralised pegmatite intersection within hole MTC17-025 with a spodumene mineralisation estimate of 25%
o    24.0m (from 18.0m to 42.0m) mineralised pegmatite intersection within hole MTC17-013 with a spodumene mineralisation estimate of 25%
o    20.0m (from 0.0m to 20.0m) mineralised pegmatite intersection within hole MTC17-022 with a spodumene mineralisation estimate of 15%
o    17.4m (from 0.0m to 17.4m) mineralised pegmatite intersection within hole MTC17-011 with a spodumene mineralisation estimate of 15%
•    All lithium mineralisation contained in spodumene and main pegmatite zone remains open along strike in both directions
•    Additional spodumene-bearing pegmatite outcrops have been uncovered during trail and drill site  preparation, suggesting significant  exploration upside
•    Ore profiling and initial metallurgical test work underway with NAGROM and Primero – results expected in the coming weeks
