An emerging producer of industrial mineral concentrates, with a major flagship graphite project, has announced that it is set to acquire a highly prospective high-grade lithium project in central Madagascar.

Bass Metals Ltd has completed the acquisition of two permits and a Mineral Rights Agreement for a third permit, which covers the Millie’s Reward Project located in Madagascar.

The acquisition complements Bass’ presence in Madagascar due to its already operating flagship Graphmada Care project. Bass Metals Ltd aims to become a leading producer and supplier of industrial minerals concentrates.

Millie’s    Reward    is    a    highly    prospective conventional spodumene hosted lithium deposit located in Madagascar. A majority of the visible pegmatitic dykes and sills within the permits are over 10 metres in thickness, with swells in areas of up to 40 metres in thickness, while being up to several hundred metres in length.
