Jindalee Resources’ Lindsay Dudfield joins Proactive’s Andrew Scott after drilling kicked off at the company’s McDermitt lithium project in Oregon. The 28-hole program is designed to infill and extend the 13.3 million tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent contained in the McDermitt mineral resource estimate. Dudfield says if the holes come up trumps, then the company is looking at a significant increase in the project’s resource base. Two rigs will be spinning by September, with all holes to be complete by late October. Jindalee expects to have all results on hand by year’s end, facilitating a resource update in 2023’s March quarter.
