Lithium Update

 

 

15 June 2023

 

Red Rock Resources Plc, the natural resource exploration and development company with interests in gold, copper, cobalt, lithium and other minerals, announces an update to the announcement of 28 March 2023 in relation to the Company's operations in Zimbabwe.

 

Following submission of the Environmental Impact Assessment ("EIA") for the Company's first Zimbabwe project and stakeholder meetings, an environmental certificate has now been issued. The Company can therefore start production and sale of lithium product.

 

Work will be carried out in parallel to permit our other Zimbabwe licences for mining.

 

Red Rock Chairman Andrew Bell comments: "Now that we have our environmental clearance, mining can begin on site. We are in a position to start shipping product immediately, and will make announcements as we pass various milestones.

 

Zimbabwe is a top ten lithium producer, and the biggest producer in Africa, and is known for its high grade product. This is a significant milestone for Red Rock, and we are assessing the financial implications as we test material and delineate further the pegmatites within our licences."

 

In Burkina Faso, the transfer of the Boulon licence to the Company has now been completed, The BRGM (Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières) and BUMIGEB (Bureau des Mines et de la Géologie du Burkina Faso) carried out a regional geochemistry survey on stream sediments in south-western Burkina Faso to identify potentially mineralised zones as targets for future prospecting operations following receipt of World Bank funding in 2011. A channel of lithium-bearing leucogranites was identified that runs through one of our gold licences. The centre of this mapped channel, containing some of the highest lithium anomalies, underlies our licence.

 

In Ivory Coast, one of our applications contains historically mapped lithium occurrences in pegmatites, and lies within the area in the west of the country where recent lithium exploration has taken place.

 

 

GLOSSARY
