The Pan Asia Metals Ltd (ASX: PAM) share price is up today after a positive drilling update from its prospect in Thailand.

The Pan Asia Metals share price is currently up 1.08% at 47 cents after surging to an intraday high of 53 cents in early trade.

Pan Asia Metals is an ASX battery metals explorer with four lithium projects in southern Thailand.

What did the company announce?

Investors have reacted positively to the company’s lithium drilling results from its Reung Kiet Lithium prospect.

In today’s release, Pan Asia Metals advised testing results from four drill holes at the mine showed strong lithium mineralisation with robust thickness and grades.

This follows promising lithium results from 6 additional drill holes at the mine, as reported in September.

Lithium is heavily used in electric vehicle (EV) battery technology, which is gaining momentum in Asia and globally.

The company noted its 4 Southeast Asian projects were close to growing EV markets, reducing shipping costs.

Management commentary

Pan Asia Metals managing director Paul Lock said:

We continue to be very satisfied with the assay results we are seeing.

Our drilling results suggest that a 10,000 tonne per annum lithium chemical plant is a realistic objective.
