2022-04-11 14:45:45

Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire – April 12th, 2022 – Tantalex Resources Corporation (CSE:TTX), (FSE:1T0) (“Tantalex” or the “Corporation”), is pleased to provide additional assay results received from drill holes in the K dump. Initial assay results from the K dump had indicated interesting intercepts where 7 of the 8 holes assayed averaged 1.04% Li20 from surface to 7m depth.

Further to these results, Tantalex sent the remaining 3m composite samples it had stored from the K dump for assaying. These samples were taken from:


Lithium aircore intersections results

  • MDA100 15m @ 1.183% Li2O from surface 

  • MDA101 15m @ 1.006% Li2O from surface 

  • MDA102 15m @ 1.018% Li2O from surface 

  • MDA103 12m @ 0.856% Li2O from surface 

  • MDA104 21m @ 0.763% Li2O from surface 

Average Lithium content from the 14 cobra hole drillholes assayed at 0,965% Li2O.

These results therefore confirm that the previously reported assay results from the K dump show grade continuity throughout the K dump.

From the volume estimation report that Tantalex conducted in Q4 2021, the estimated total volume of the K dump is 3 512 532m³. With an approximate density of 1,5 g/cm³ this equals  a total estimated volume  of 5 268 797 metric tons.

Additional assay results are also expected in the upcoming weeks from dumps  C, I, H and G.

Eric Allard, commented: ‘’These additional results from the K dump are extremely encouraging as we continue progressing on our Maiden Mineral Resource Estimate and continue our ongoing metallurgical testing to prepare an optimal process flowsheet.’’

Exploration is currently ongoing on the Pegmatite Corridor and drilling is planned to commence in the next few weeks. Tantalex will advise as soon as a firm date has been confirmed by our drilling contractor.
