Industrial Minerals started reverse circulation drilling at its Pippingarra Quarry Project in the Pilbara Lithium district, with a second, larger rig mobilised for deeper testing.

The 3,500m reverse circulation program aims to follow up on historical drill results and explore stacked pegmatites.

The initial program will examine previous drill results originated from the existing pit and testing the presence of flat lying pegmatites.

Industrial Minerals plans to complete Phase 1 by December, assess assay results by January 2024, and initiate Phase 2 in early 2024.
