Future Battery Minerals reported assay results from its Phase 4B drilling at the Kangaroo Hills Lithium Project in Western Australia.

The results extend the high-grade Big Red pegmatite a further 200m to the northeast. Intercepts include 27m at 1.04% Li2O and 21m at 1.01% Li2O.

The Phase 4B program comprised 19 holes totalling 3,109m, expanding Big Red's known footprint to over 600m.

The company plans to proceed with further drilling designed to assess initial targets at the neighbouring Miriam tenure.
