Premier1 Lithium initiated drilling at the Abbotts North Project, 35km north of Meekatharra, Western Australia.

The 2,000m reverse circulation drilling program, set to conclude in February, targets lithium-rich pegmatites at the main Buttamiah prospect.

CEO Richard Taylor credited the team's efforts in commencing the drill program following the recent capital raise.

Premier1 holds an option to acquire full ownership of the Abbotts North Project from a private vendor.
