We have recently made significant discoveries in the lithium and gold exploration sectors. Our Ghanaian Cape Coast Lithium Project has initially delivered exciting and potentially world class lithium grades and drill intersections, whilst in Chad, we have uncovered a substantial gold bearing province with a surface footprint rivalling some of today’s largest operating gold mines.

In Ghana, the company entered into earn-in arrangements for access rights to the historical Egyasimanku Hill spodumene-rich lithium deposit, estimated to be in the order of 1.48Mt at 1.67% Li2O and surrounding tenements. The portfolio covers some 684 sq km, with the newly-discovered Ewoyaa project including drill intersections of 128m @ 1.21% Li2O from 3m and 111m @ 1.35% Li2O from 37m, and a further identified 20km strike of pegmatite vein swarms.
In Chad, the company entered into an agreement with Tekton Minerals Pte Ltd of Singapore concerning its portfolio covering 900 sq km of highly prospective gold and other mineral projects. IronRidge acquired 100% of Tekton including its projects and team to advance the Dorothe, Echbara, Am Ouchar, Nabagay and Kalaka licenses, which host multiple, large-scale gold projects.
In Côte d’Ivoire, the company entered into conditional joint venture arrangements that secured access rights to highly prospective gold mineralised structures and pegmatite occurrences covering a combined 3,187 sq km and 1,172 sq km area respectively. The projects are well located within access of an extensive bitumen road network and along strike from multi-million ounce gold projects and mines.
