Industrial Minerals disclosed results from the Pippingarra Quarry Project's reverse circulation drilling in Western Australia's Pilbara region.

December 2023 highlights include lithium intercepts outside known pegmatite areas, such as 1m at 1.72% LiO2 from 30m and 2m at 1.03% LiO2 from 37m.

The drilling also revealed extensive pegmatite and quartz intervals, validating historical data and suggesting potential high-purity quartz applications in electronics and solar photovoltaic.

Industrial Minerals plans further exploration phases and assesses quartz suitability for the high-demand high purity quartz market.
