Leases Type: Exploration
Primary Commodities: Gold (Au), Copper (cu), Nikel (Ni), Lithium (Li)
The main exploration targets at Tambourah are lithium bearing pegmatites within the various rock types. A digital database of known mineral deposits provided by the Geological Survey of WA, Mindex, indicates a number of Li, Sn, Ta bearing pegmatites and alluvials within the Tambourah tenements.
Assays received from rock chip sampling by the Company of pegmatites collected in September 2017 at Tambourah returned very promising results of up to 1.47% Li2O). The best lithium results within the Exploration Licence are from a swarm of pegmatites exploited in the past for tin and tantalum.
Multiple pegmatite outcrops were observed and a total of four samples were collected from two discrete areas. Lepidolite was observed at both locations separated by 350m (samples TRC003 and TRC004). A sample of lithium muscovite from one old working returned 0.2% Li2O and elevated tantalum and tin values confirming the rare element character of this pegmatite.
