Resolution Minerals Ltd (ASX:RML) Drilling Starts at Benmara Battery Metals Project

on 9/23/2021
Resolution Minerals Ltd (ASX:RML) (FRA:NC3) is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling on the highest priority battery metal targets (4km & 2km strike length) on the Benmara Project, Northern Territory (see RML ASX announcement 1/9/21). The compelling shallow drill targets are derived from Resolution's VTEM geophysics survey and new Geoscience Australia research which identified prospective rock type previously mis-mapped. The drill targets are on the margin of the South Nicholson Basin and Murphy Inlier perched on the Fish River Fault and is analogous and along strike from the Walford Creek Deposits (*40Mt @ 2% Cu Eq) and nearby to the Westmoreland Uranium deposits. The uranium potential for unconformity style hard rock uranium is being assessed given the recent strengthening of uranium spot prices.

Duncan Chessell - Managing Director Resolution Minerals commented:

We are very excited to announce drilling has started on our maiden drill program at the under-explored Benmara Battery Metals Project in the Northern Territory. The program follows up large scale targets derived from our recent VTEM geophysics survey for sediment hosted stratiform copper and other battery metals. With virtually no prior drilling conducted into these large-scale targets, we look forward to results of this exciting opportunity and accelerating exploration.
