Ongoing reverse circulation drilling at the Mina do Barroso lithium project in Portugal continues to return significant intersections of lithium mineralisation for Savannah Resources Plc (LON:SAV).

The drilling is designed to build upon the existing JORC resource of 32,000t of Li2O already defined at the Reservatorio deposit, one of three targets currently being evaluated.
