Two lithium bearing pegmatite trends have been identified within the Osborne JV exploration licence E47/3719 (51% GRE: 49% ARV) by JV partner Green Tech Metals Ltd. The two trends consist of a northern and southern trend, each of which has been interpreted as traversing east-west.
The northern Kobe trend currently has approximately 1.4 km of strike while the yet unnamed southern trend extends as a series of pegmatite outcrops over 2.5 km (Figure 1).
High tenor lithium assays received within the project area include:
- 3.6% Li2O from Sample 23CR038
- 2.3% Li2O from Sample 23CR039
- 1.8% Li2O from Sample 23GT11-041
- 1.7% Li2O from Sample 23GT11-042
- 1.58% Li2O from Sample 23GT11-039
Further lithium exploration is planned on the Osborne JV tenement in the forthcoming year with sampling and mapping aimed at identifying the full extent of the mineralised pegmatite zones and the consistency of the lithium mineralogy and grade. Preparations have commenced to enable a maiden drilling program, subject to receiving all approvals.
