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.”
