Kalamazoo Resources Claims Marble Bar Lithium Discovery

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kalamazoo Resources (ASX: KZR) followed its appearance at the 2022 RIU Sydney Resources Roundup with news from early-stage field reconnaissance activities at the company’s Marble Bar lithium project.

Kalamazoo’s Pilbara lithium exploration ground holding now totals 354.4 square kilometres comprising the Marble Bar, DOM’s Hill, and Pear Creek lithium projects.

The company claimed its ongoing field reconnaissance of portable XRF soil anomalies recently reported at E45/4700 (aka Marble Bar lithium project) has discovered additional pegmatite outcrops, some of which contain visible lithium mineralisation in the form of lepidolite (lithium mica).

Rock chip sample assay results returned up to 1.6 per cent lithium oxide (Li2O) and 372ppm tantalum.

“The ongoing fieldwork at Marble Bar is delivering excellent results with the identification of multiple pegmatite dykes containing visible lithium mineralisation and rock chip assay results up to 1.6 per cent lithium oxide and 372ppm tantalum,” Kalamazoo Resources chairman and CEO Luke Reinehr said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“These discoveries are lining up well with our pXRF soil anomalies, and we are pleased to see the pegmatite dykes extending into our newly granted tenement E45/5970.

“We consider the potential for LCT pegmatite mineralisation in the immediate area is very high, which is supported by Global Lithium’s nearby Archer deposit (10.5Mt at 1% Li20) to the north.

“The grant of two additional tenements at Marble Bar and DOM’s Hill further expands our lithium exploration tenure in the immediate area, which are now the subject of additional soil sampling and exploration activity in conjunction with our JV exploration partner SQM.

“We are anticipating the commencement of drilling across both projects towards the end of June 2022.”

Dundas Minerals Encounters Broad Zones of Nickel Mineralisation at Jumbuck

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dundas Minerals returned from the 2022 RIU Sydney Resources Roundup to report reverse circulation (RC) drilling results from its Jumbuck nickel prospect program.

Dundas Minerals carried out the drilling in February as part of exploration activities for nickel, copper and gold in the prospective Albany-Fraser Orogen, Western Australia.

Results included:

22JURC009 (135m)
0.23 per cent nickel and 0.22 per cent chromium over 34m (25m – 58m), including 7m at 0.38 per cent nickel and 0.16 per cent chromium (26m 33m); and

22JURC010 (135m)
0.14 per cent nickel and 0.27 per cent chromium over 33m (71m – 103m).

“The results from these two holes, which at 135 metres are still relatively shallow, are most encouraging,” Dundas Minerals managing director Shane Volk said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“It is still early days at Jumbuck, however the nickel enrichment within the Mafic intrusive is significant.

“The next steps for us will be the completion of detailed magnetic inversion models, analysis of district gravity data (including a possible infill gravity survey) and revisiting the SkyTEM electromagnetic data for conductive anomalies.

“The objective of this work is to develop at least one diamond drill hole target to test beneath the near-surface enrichment zones.”

Lithium Energy Provides Answers to Modern Conundrum

COMMODITY CAPERS: Lithium Energy (ASX: LEL) is a dual-focused company with one eye looking overseas to develop its Solaroz lithium brine project in Argentina and the other fixed on its Burke graphite project in Queensland.

On its web page, Lithium Energy provides answers to two questions: Why lithium? and Why graphite?

The long-term prospects for lithium are very strong, Lithium Energy says, with demand being driven primarily by the expected growth for lithium batteries to be used in electric vehicles and other personal technological gadgetry.

It justifies developing its Solaroz project in Argentina by acknowledging lithium brine projects in that part of the world are, “recognised as being particularly attractive since they are amongst the lowest on the lithium carbonate cost curve, compared to hard rock lithium projects”.

Lithium Energy recently received Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) approval from the local Jujuy Provincial Government Mining Authority to commence exploration works at Solaroz.

“This is a positive endorsement by the Argentinian Government Authorities of the Solaroz lithium project and I look forward to mobilising to site and commencing work shortly on this highly prospective project,” Lithium Energy executive chairman William Johnson said.

“There is no better address to be exploring for lithium than the prolific Lithium Triangle where a number of world class lithium brine projects have been discovered.”

Solaroz is in the highly prospective Lithium Triangle of Argentina, directly adjacent to or principally surrounded by lithium majors Allkem Limited (formerly Orocobre) and Lithium Americas Corporation.

As far as graphite goes, it is currently enjoying its status as the dominant anode material used in lithium-ion batteries with more than ten times graphite by weight used in a lithium-ion battery than lithium.

The Burke graphite project contains one of the highest-grade graphite deposits globally and presents Lithium Energy with an opportunity to participate in the anticipated growth in demand for graphite and graphite related products.

The Burke graphite deposit has a JORC Inferred Mineral Resource of 6.3 million tonnes at 16 per cent total graphitic carbon (TGC) for 1 million tonnes of contained graphite, including a high-grade component of 2.3 million tonnes at 20.6 per cent TGC.

Mamba Exploration Defines Calyerup Creek Mineralisation

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Mamba Exploration (ASX: M24), on the eve of the RIU Sydney Resources Roundup, reported results drilling at the company’s Calyerup Creek project in the Great Southern of Western Australia.

Mamba Exploration said the RC drilling intersected shallow high-grade gold mineralisation, identifying mineralisation on each drill line across the southern gold trend the company had spotted from earlier soil sampling.

The results extended mineralisation from 350 metres as reported in March, to over 500m along strike and to a maximum vertical depth of around 35m.

The mineralisation remains open along strike and at depth.

Final assay results include:

6m at 1 gram per tonne gold gold from 2m;

5m at 0.8g/t gold from 7m, and 7m at 0.7g/t gold from 17m; and

12m at 0.7g/t gold from surface.

“It is pleasing to report that shallow and significant widths of gold mineralisation have been intersected on each of the drill lines completed across the southern gold trend,” Mamba Exploration managing director Mike Dunbar said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“To intersect significant mineralisation in the initial drilling over a strike length of more than 500 metres and to a maximum vertical depth of 35 metres is an excellent start to exploration in the region.

“The mineralisation remains open in all directions.

“Now that mineralisation has been confirmed over a substantial strike length, the next round of RC drilling has been planned to extend the mineralisation at depth and further along strike.

“Preparation for the drilling is well advanced with a PoW approved by DMIRS and environmental surveys confirming there are no impediments to drilling.

“A heritage survey has been commissioned and should be completed in late May or early June, allowing drilling as soon as the winter rains abate.

“While access to our southern projects is limited during winter, our exploration efforts will shift to the Copper Flats project in the Kimberley and the Ashburton gold project.”

Great Boulder Resources Enhances Whiteheads Potential

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Great Boulder Resources (ASX: GBR) received drilling results from the company’s Whiteheads project north of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia before heading across for the RIU Sydney Resources Roundup.

Great Boulder Resources received assay results from 79 air-core (AC) holes completed at the end of January, designed to test geochemical anomalies at six prospects including three areas along the Arsenal Trend.

The company said the results continue to enhance its view that the Arsenal Trend has high potential for additional gold endowment, particularly south of the Blue Poles discovery.

Highlights include:

At Blue Poles South

4m at 0.77 grams per tonne gold from 32m to EOH; and

4m at 0.14g/t gold from 32m to EOH.

At Eclipse

4m at 0.91g/t gold from 48m; and

1m at 0.28g/t gold from 68m to EOH.

“With this program we started working on more regional targets at the south end of Whiteheads, but the results clearly highlight the Arsenal Trend as an ongoing priority for further drilling,” Great Boulder Resources managing director Andrew Paterson said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“From the north end of Blue Poles down to Tektite we’ve now defined over 2.5 kilometres of a mineralised trend.

“We need to drill deeper RC at holes at Blue Poles to test the higher-grade potential plunging to the south, and then start testing these new prospects south of Blue Poles.

“We also expect to have the AC rig back at Whiteheads in about a month, continuing first-pass drilling on additional geochemical targets defined within the broader project area.”

Eastern Metals Claims High-Grade Zinc Zone Discovery at Browns Reef

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Eastern Metals (ASX: EMS) will be looking for people to speak with at the RIU Sydney Resources Roundup to explain its interpretation of recent drill results at the company’s Browns Reef project in New South Wales.

Eastern Metals has declared the results to show the first stage of a high-grade zinc-dominated polymetallic zone discovery at Browns Reef.

The company said assays received from the initial diamond drilling campaign at Browns Reef encountered high-grade broad intersections of sulphide mineralisation in all four holes drilled.

High grade zinc assay results, include:

6 metres at 3.2 per cent zinc, 1.3 per cent lead, 0.12 per cent copper, 8.6 grams per tonne silver and 0.3g/t gold from 453.5m;

13m at 5.4 per cent zinc, 2.3 per cent lead, 0.14 per cent copper, 11.5g/t silver and 0.9g/t gold from 225m, including 2m at 14.6 per cent zinc, 5.1 per cent lead, 0.22 per cent copper, 22.5g/t silver and 0.5g/t gold from 225m;

16m at 4.1 per cent zinc, 1.6 per cent lead, 0.33 per cent copper, 27.5g/t silver and 0.4g/t gold from 251m, including 6m at 7.3 per cent zinc, 2.3 per cent lead, 0.58 per cent copper, 47.7g/t silver and 0.9g/t gold from 251m;

“This initial drilling campaign has been an outstanding success with high-grade mineralisation encountered in all holes over significant mineralised intervals,” Eastern Metals managing director and CEO Wayne Rossiter said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“The Evergreen Zone lode has a current strike length of over 100 metres and vertical depth of at least 300 metres and remains open along strike and at depth.

“Our next steps will be to drill further along strike and this program has received regulatory approval.”

BMG Resources Extends High-Grade Gold at Abercromby

THE DRILL SERGEANT: BMG Resources (ASX: BMG) will approach the RIU Sydney Resources Roundup with a spring in its step following the release of assay results from recent diamond drilling at the company’s Abercromby gold project in Western Australia.

BMG declared the drilling to have, “delivered another excellent batch of gold results”, which has added to the known mineralised envelope at the project’s Capital prospect that remains open at depth and along strike.

Results from the latest drilling, include:

31 metres at 6.18 grams per tonne gold from 162m, including 1m at 181.94g/t gold from 191m, and part of a broader 77m at 2.99g/t gold from 116m;

10m at 11.71g/t gold from 295m, including 1.17m at 23.84g/t gold from 295.4m and 2m at 44.54g/t gold from 304m; and

13.8m at 6.56g/t gold from 446m, including 1m at 86.02g/t gold from 446m.

BMG said the recent assays had built upon previous results achieved by its RC program by confirming extensions to multiple high-grade mineralised zones at the Capital prospect at depth and along strike – one of the primary goals for the current program.

Mineralisation at the Capital prospect has several primary north-west trending mineralised shear zones (lodes) that contain internal plunging high-grade gold shoots.

The latest drill results have continued to define these mineralised zones, the West Lode and East Lode, as well as a Hangingwall Lode to the east.

In addition, there are indications that there are further mineralised zones in the Capital area, in the footwall of the West Lode.

“It’s now well and truly game on at Abercromby,” BMG Resources managing director Bruce McCracken said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“In one single program, we have more than doubled the likely size of the deposit, intersected extremely high-grade gold in fresh rock, and proven the system is fertile at depth via the deepest drilling undertaken at the project to date.

“Our geological and grade models have again successfully targeted mineralisation at or very close to predicted locations, with extrapolation holding true at distances in excess of 250 metres.

“The nature and style of mineralisation is becoming well recognised, and the company is in a great position to leverage further success with the drill bit from here.”

Black Cat Syndicate Produces Winning Drilling Results at Kal East

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Black Cat Syndicate (ASX: BC8) should be kept busy at the upcoming RIU Sydney Resources Roundup after the release of results from drilling programs recently completed across four mining centres within the company’s Kal East gold project in Western Australia.

Drilling at the Fingals Mining Centre focused on high priority targets, resulting in important advancements, including the identification and extension of the Western Lodes structure down dip and to the south of current drilling.

The company interpreted these results as potentially identifying a repeat of the high-grade Fingals style mineralisation.

Results include:

4 metres at 6.17 grams per tonne gold from 38m and 2m at 3.79g/t gold from 44m; and

1m at 20.4g/t gold from 29m.

Elsewhere at Fingals drilling extended the Southern Shoot along strike to the east and at depth, returning:

3m at 5.19g/t gold from 250m and 3m at 3.65g/t gold from 262m.

Also included in results was the intersection of a potential repeat horizon at depth that Black Cat believes could host Southern Shoot style mineralisation, of:

7m at 1.52g/t gold from 23m, 2m at 4.28g/t gold from 132m, and 1m at 1.23g/t gold from 267m.

A mineralised structure was also identified below the historic tailings dam:

2m at 4.13g/t gold from 72m and 4m at 2g/t gold from 76m.




At the Majestic Mining Centre first pass drilling 800m north of the Crown prospect produced promising results which are below a stripped profile and are like those seen upon the discovery of the Imperial/Majestic deposit.

Results include:

1m at 3.9g/t gold from 51m, 3m at 1.3g/t gold from 64m and 4m at 1.99g/t gold from 70m.

Infill drilling to the south of Jones Find confirmed continuity of mineralisation, with shallow, high-grade intercepts further enhancing the potential scale and economics of an open pit at the Jones Find deposit, which is located 500m from the planned processing facility.

Results include:

4m at 8.81g/t gold from 3m; and

4m at 3.47g/t gold from 34m.

RC grade control drilling at the Myhree Mining Centre contained numerous thick, high-grade results, which confirmed multiple mineralised zones as expected.

Results include:

7m at 9.5g/t gold from 9m;

4m at 9.89g/t gold from 25m; and

10m at 3.2g/t gold from 5m.

Black Cat’s final program of grade control drilling for the Myhree open pit is planned to commence in May 2022.

Drilling of two step-out diamond holes was undertaken at the Trojan Mining Centre to gain better understanding of the geology and to test mineralisation at depth.

Extensive zones of alteration were intersected demonstrating the extension of mineralisation approx. 150m below the historic open pit.

Results include:

19.28m at 1.12g/t gold from 206.45m, 12m at 1.46g/t gold from 264.95m and 19.01m at 1.25g/t gold from 288.43m.

Black Cat indicated Follow-up drilling is required in all the above areas and is planned during the remainder of 2022.

“We have results back from four successful drilling programs at Kal East,” Black Cat Syndicate managing director Gareth Solly said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“Fingals remains open in all directions and at depth and we have identified a number of exciting, high priority targets that may lead to additional Resource growth.

“At Majestic, regional drilling indicates the potential for additional new discoveries while Jones Find continues to grow.

“Trojan has demonstrated that mineralisation extends well beyond the base of the open pit as well as potentially along strike.

“Grade control at Myhree continues to confirm the shallow, high-grade Resources in the open pit position.

“Additional grade control drilling will be completed at Myhree ahead of potential toll treatment.”
