Start of Exploration Drilling at Falkenhain


Zinnwald Lithium plc, the German focused lithium development company, is pleased to announce that it has started its exploration drilling programme on its Falkenhain exploration license having received all necessary permits and permissions from the appropriate authorities.


The Company's Falkenhain exploration licence is located 7km north from the core Zinnwald Licence.  The licence area was historically extensively explored for occurrences of tin and tungsten with drilling undertaken most recently between 1963 and 1990. The Company has performed a detailed review of the historic data including assaying samples of the surviving core from these campaigns. The length of the greisen (lithium containing ore) intersections and the Li-content indicate clear potential for a significant lithium resource.   The Company has therefore designed an exploration drill campaign of ten diamond drill holes to test the historic drill data and better determine the resource potential of the licence.


The Company is looking forward to making progress with the exploration drill programme in the coming months.


Zinnwald Lithium CEO, Anton du Plessis, commented:   "We are delighted to start exploration drilling activity at Falkenhain. The license area is located close to the Zinnwald Lithium Deposit, where an in-fill drilling programme is also underway, and, if its potential can be proven, could represent important upside for the broader Zinnwald Project."
