Lithium

Our Lithium Resources

Lithium Cation is a monovalent cation that is metabolized much like sodium and is important in many cellular functions inside or on the surface of cells

PANORAMA, TAMBOURAH, NOREENA DOWNS

LITHIUM PROJECT – JV POTENTIAL

The Panorama tenements straddle the southern end of the North Pole Dome, northern ends of the North Shaw and Soanesville Belts

The main exploration targets at Panorama are Precambrian placer gold deposits.  These deposits have the potential to contain lithium bearing pegmatites

At Tambourah, assays received for rock chip sampling of pegmatites returned very promising results of up to 1.47% Li2O from a swarm of pegmatites exploited in the past for tin and tantalum

A large pegmatite extending over 300m has been located at Noreena Downs. This area may be the target of further exploration activity for lithium

To date, there has been no extensive exploration for lithium at Noreena Downs by Infinity or previous tenement holders. The areas occupy ideal geological settings for the pegmatite outcrops to be located and are within 10km of fertile monzogranites

What are lithium minerals?

Lithium is an element valuable for the production of glass, aluminum products, and batteries. It is mined from ores of petalite (LiAl(Si2O5)2, lepidolite K(Li,Al)3(Al,Si,Rb)4O10(F,OH)2, spodumene LiAl(SiO3)2 and also subsurface brines. Australia and Chile are the world’s largest producers of lithium.

What is lithium mineral used for?


The most important use of lithium is in rechargeable batteries for mobile phones, laptops, digital cameras and electric vehicles. Lithium is also used in some non-rechargeable batteries for things like heart pacemakers, toys and clocks.

Where is lithium found?


Where is lithium available from? With 8 million tons, Chile has the world’s largest known lithium reserves. This puts the South American country ahead of Australia (2.7 million tons), Argentina (2 million tons) and China (1 million tons). Within Europe, Portugal has smaller quantities of the valuable raw material.
