UK Lithium Exploration
Drilling the First Lithium Holes in UK History!
In Q2 2019 British Lithium successfully completed its maiden drilling program in Cornwall. Six Reverse Circulation holes were drilled with a maximum depth of 201.5 meters. Hole 1 on 30 April 2019 was the first Cornish lithium exploration hole ever drilled in the United Kingdom and successfully intercepted broad intercepts of Cornish lithium micas.

British Lithium has collected a treasure trove of historical records, samples and historic mining data. We have been busy digitising this data to create a unique 3D perspective of the geology of Cornwall. This has been supplemented with on the ground field working and most recently, our phase one drilling program.
Part of the challenge has been unravelling 300 years of mining and exploration in Cornwall. Our geologist have been using state of the arts tool to develop detailed understanding of unique genesis of the granitic lithium mica enrichment. We have also been conducting a detailed mineral tenure review and digitising title plans to produce detailed mineral ownership maps
