The Global Lithium Resources Ltd (ASX: GL1) share price climbed today amid positive lithium results.

Shares in the company were trading at 63 cents apiece at market close today, up 3.3%.

Let’s take a closer look at what the mining company announced.

What did Global Lithium discover?

The Global Lithium share price finished the day higher on Tuesday after the company revealed significant lithium assay results from its exploration program at the Marble Bar lithium project.

Global Lithium is an emerging lithium company exploring the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Drill holes at the project site intersected a large amount of lithium mineralisation at previously unexplored areas.

The company said these intercepts show the ongoing success of the exploration program and the growth potential of the project.

The company said the significance of spodumene found between the Archer deposit and the Brockman zone “demonstrates that the system is larger than originally thought and the company intends to follow up on these targets in CY2022”.

Speaking on the strong results which likely boosted the Global Lithium share price today, managing director Jamie Wright said:

The high success rate of the program vindicates the targeting effort by the Global Lithium and Resource Potentials’ teams and provides a strong platform for the 2022 exploration campaign.

The lithium market remains strong and we expect this momentum to continue into 2022 and beyond.

In 2022, the company will focus on new lithium targets at the mining site that are yet to be tested.
