Wed Sep 30, 2009 Consolidated Abaddon Begins Exploration on Raleigh Lake Lithium Project
Vancouver, BC - Consolidated Abaddon Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ABN) (FWB: E2L) (the "Company") announces that a fall work program has commenced on its newly acquired 560 acres Raleigh Lake Lithium claims located in the Kenora Mining Division of Northwestern Ontario.
A crew has been mobilized to the Raleigh Lake Lithium project. The initial exploration program will consist of compilation of previous data from a modest drill program that was completed in 1999, locating of drill collars in the field and the re-logging of existing core. A detailed mapping program of abundant lithium bearing pegmatite outcrops located on the Raleigh Lake property and a tightly spaced detailed magnetometer program to better define the known geological structures will also be completed.
Raleigh Lake lithium bearing pegmatites have been known in the area since the 1960's. Ontario Provincial Government mapping in the 1990's identified a 'Pegmatite Field' trending through the area. A modest drilling program by Avalon Ventures Ltd. in 1999 and 2000 defined several stacked shallow dipping (20-30 degrees) tantalum-lithium bearing dikes in several drill holes. Thicknesses ranged from 1 to 8 metres and were shown to continue 450 metres down dip. Drill holes were relatively shallow and broadly spaced. The pegmatites appear very uniform at the spacing used and occur in volcanic rock flanking granitic intrusions. Only 4 shallow holes were drilled on the Raleigh Lake property. Historic data available in the Ontario Government geological files reflect certain intersections below.
Hole # RL 99-01 0.56 % Li (lithium) over 3.2 metres
Hole # RL 99-04 1.00 % Li over 4.1 metres
Hole # RL 99-05 1.50 % Li over 6.9 metres
Consolidated Abaddon is conducting this autumn exploration program with the intent to utilize all data gathered (new and historic) to direct the Company towards a winter 2009 -- 2010 comprehensive drill program.
The Company has approximately $2 million in its treasury and no debt.
