Our exploration Investment, Lanthanein Resources (ASX: LNR), just kicked off a soil sampling program across its Lady Grey lithium project in WA.

LNR’s project sits ~400m to the west of the Early Grey deposit (Mt Holland) lithium project owned by Wesfarmers and SQM which Wesfarmers purchased in a $776M deal back in 2019.

Wesfarmers are currently developing the project and expect first production next year.
