China Dongsheng International (CDSG) has found "extremely strong" lithium geochemical sampling results from the extension of the first sample line at its Titan 1 lithium property in Tanzania.
As part of its follow-up work on Titan 1, a surficial geochemical soil survey line that initially encountered very high grade (13,000 ppm Lithium) at its terminus was extended an additional distance of 4 km and sampled at regular intervals, the company said in a statement.
Results from the line returned very high values over the entirety of the new extension, with lithium values ranging from a low of 2,200 ppm to a high of 7,700 ppm Li. Including the original station, the lithium values occurring over 4 km average an incredible 9,033 ppm Li (1.94% Li2O).
In a separate statement, the company announced positive soil geochemical sampling results from an initial sampling phase of its expansive Titan 2 lithium property.
The Titan 2 project is approximately 32 km west of the Titan 1 claim group and is centered over a large, flat area of about square km. Results from the line averaged 3,930 ppm lithium.
The lowest value returned 800 ppm Li and the highest value, located at the end of the line, returned 1.98% Li2O (9,200 ppm Li). Values for other elements broadly mirror and confirm the distribution of anomalous lithium values.
CDSG, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Titan Lithium, is a lithium explorer and developer.
