Positive results from drilling program have increased Keliber's estimated mineral resources with 2.08 million tonnes (35%) compared with previous estimate from 2016.
During the summer 2016 and winter 2016 – 2017, Nordic Mining’s associated company Keliber Oy has conducted drilling at the Rapasaari and Syväjärvi lithium deposits. As a result of the drilling programs, the measured and indicated mineral resource estimates in accordance with the JORC code (2012 Edition) have increased by 2.08 million tonnes (35%) compared with the previous March 2016 estimate.
The ore reserve estimates will be updated in connection with the ongoing definitive feasibility study (DFS) for Keliber’s lithium project.
Further drilling will continue in the Rapasaari area till the end of June 2017 and subsequently exploration will target other prospective areas.
