What’s driving the Charger Metals share price higher?

While no news came out of the company today, investors may be wondering what’s causing its shares to power ahead.

Before market open yesterday, Charger Metals released a statement to the ASX providing an update on its Bynoe Lithium Project.

The company advised that exploration activities have commenced, with field crews mobilised to expand mapping and geochemical sampling. So far, 14 pegmatite anomalies have been identified within a 5-kilometre-long zone from existing geochemistry results.

It’s worth noting that 50% of the tenement has not yet been geochemically sampled. At the end of August, a detailed aeromagnetic survey will be flown to provide more clarity on the spodumene deposits.

Charger Metals managing director, David Crook said:

Charger Metal’s programmes of mapping, geochemistry and aero-magnetics now underway at the Bynoe Lithium Project are designed to refine the 5-kilometre-long cluster of lithium targets to a point where a substantial drilling programme can be planned.
