Gorge Lithium Project
The Gorge Lithium Project comprises of 12 claims covering 45.1 km2 of ground with two known pegmatite occurrences, Nelson and Koshman, identified by historical works during the mid-1950s. The project geology consists of favourable structures along contacts between granite intrusions and metasediments which is a host rock of spodumene pegmatites.The pegmatite dykes observed at both Nelson and Koshman occurrence are simple, non-zoned, albite-type spodumene pegmatites with trace amounts of oxides and apatite.
- Five grab samples were collected in 2018 for a previous operator and analysed for lithium returning values of up to 3.22% Li2O (and an average of 2.24% Li2O).
- During the Due Diligence, from five samples, four samples included Li2O values above 3.78%, with the 2 highest results returned at 5.75% and 6.80%.
- High-grade lithium assays from channel samples taken from the Koshman and Nelson pegmatite showings at the Gorge lithium project, including 1.8m @3.75% Li2O, confirm significant project potential.
Assay results included:
- 1.8m @ 3.75% Li2O;
- 2.1m @ 1.23% Li2O;
- 2.7m @ 0.87% Li2O;
- including 1.5m at 1.30% Li2O.
