Askari Metals is developing the flagship Uis Lithium Project, located in Namibia, Africa. The Uis Project sits strategically along strike of the operating Uis Mine owned by AfriTin Mining plc and is located less than 230 km from the deep-water port of Walvis Bay by all-weather sealed roads. High-grade lithium, tin and tantalum mineralisation has been identified on surface in outcropping pegmatites and the Company has recently completed its Phase I RC drilling program of ~3,000m as part of an overall 10,000m RC drilling campaign with the aim of delineating a maiden JORC (2012) resource by the middle of 2023.

Resource delineation at the Uis Lithium Project
We are aggressive explorers with premium lithium-tin-tantalum projects ~2km from an active tin-tantalum-lithium mine (AfriTin – Uis Mine -71.54Mt @ 0.63% Li2O, 0.134% Sn and 85ppm Ta) in a stable African jurisdiction (Namibia – 2nd best geopolitical jurisdiction in Africa). Our Namibian projects boast visible lithium-tin-tantalum mineralisation and rock sample results with economic grades (3.1% Li2O, 1.3% Sn and 658ppm Ta) derived from multiple pegmatites outcropping across the tenure, which is less than 230km from a deep-water port. We are aggressively exploring these battery metal assets with 10,000 -20,000m of drilling planned for 2023 across all the Namibian tenure (NOTE: 3,000m RC drilling already completed in November 2022). Our portfolio is further supported by Australian tenure including the district-scale Yarrie project portfolio and the Myrnas Hill and Hillside projects.
