Malibu, CA, Oct 20, 2022 AEST (ABN Newswire) - In this segment of The Ellis Martin Report we speak with Ion Energy Limited's (CVE:ION) (IONGF:OTCMKTS) (5YB:FRA) CEO Ali Haji as we provide a report on a recent site visit to Mongolia's very promising premiere lithium exploration project with an inferred resource estimate out by likely by the end of the year.
ION Energy is very pleased to provide an update on drilling operations at Urgakh Naran in Mongolia, following the Company's previously announced site visit in September.
Drilling of two lithological diamond core holes has been completed at Urgakh Naran with a total depth of 702m, third hole currently at 185m;
Drilling of one water well down to 300m has been completed using a tricone bit, slotted casings, with a diameter of 6 inches;
Total cumulated gravelite, porous and permeable zones starting at 184m seen at UNDH-02 show thickness of at least 80m; and
Site visit concluded in September 2022 with a second visit planned for October 2022; inferred resource calculation ongoing.
"Onsite advancements at Urgakh Naran continue to be highly encouraging. Being able to report on lithology which is indicative of permeability, further validates the low resistivity zones identified by the TEM conducted this summer. We continue to advance the asset at breakneck speed." said Ali Haji, CEO & Director of ION Energy.
Efforts steadily progress at Urgakh Naran to complete the diamond holes as well as the monitoring wells, allowing the Company to progress inferred resource calculations.
