BlueBird Battery Metals release its recent high-grade vanadium assay results

Date: Aug 8, 2018

A review of historical data highlighted strongly anomalous vanadiumtitanium and iron in surface rock chip samples associated with the Shephards Discordant Zone, a regional scale structure that hosts the Windimurra Vanadium Mine, 20 kms to the north

BlueBird Battery Metals Inc (CVE:BATT) has completed a high resolution airborne magnetic survey of its Canegrass battery metals project in Western Australia.

The survey information is currently being reviewed in conjunction with the historical property data to identify and prioritize drill targets for follow-up diamond drilling expected to commence later this month.

Historical data, collected in 2007 by Maximus Resources Ltd (ASX:MXR), comprises 325 samples that returned vanadium oxide grades in excess of 1.0%, with the sample population averaging 1.21% vanadium oxide, 12.6% titanium oxide and 50.1% iron.

Fast forward to 2018, and BlueBird’s geologists have collected additional rock samples from VTEM target 13-08 that returned the following results:

Sample 494 – 48.7% iron; 12.4% titanium oxide; 1.25% vanadium oxide
Sample 498 – 53.6% iron; 13.7% titanium oxide; 1.30% vanadium oxide
Sample 499 – 53.3% iron; 13.6% titanium oxide; 1.29% vanadium oxide
Sample 500 – 50.2% iron; 12.4% titanium oxide; 1.27% vanadium oxide
