Helicopter Borne Drilling Resumes at Stria Pontax project as Winter Road Construction Blazes Forward

Stria Lithium (TSXV:SRA) announced that the helicopter-supported core drilling program has resumed after Christmas holidays at its flagship Pontax Lithium property, in west-central Eeyou Istchee Baie-James Territory of northern Québec.  The drilling program aims to complete another 3 holes as it waits for the completion of a winter road to mobilize three land-based drill rigs to the site.  This road is vital for carrying out proposed 12,000 plus metres winter program designed to delineate a resource as well as test the extensions of the Central Pontax zone, to be completed by early April 2023.

The winter core drilling program at the Pontax LSPD prospect was designed and will be overseen by partner Cygnus Gold Limited (ASX: CY5).
