THE DRILL SERGEANT: Kalamazoo Resources (ASX: KZR) reported on recent lithium exploration progress at the company’s DOM’s Hill and Marble Bar projects in the East Pilbara region of Wetsern Australia.
Kalamazoo Resources has identified priority target areas for potential lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatite mineralisation via portable XRF (pXRF) analyses of historical broad-spaced geochemical soil samples.
These were collected within E45/5146, which is the first of seven tenements that make up the 122 square kilometres DOM’s Hill project.
Kalamazoo indicated these new priority target areas will be subject to upcoming in-fill soil sampling and field validation campaigns.
This will be complemented by newly acquired project-wide high-resolution satellite imagery that has further identified sparsely outcropping pegmatites.
A project wide geochemical soil sampling program (~4,600 samples) is scheduled to commence mid-October 2021.
A technical review undertaken of Kalamazoo’s Marble Bar tenements (E45/4700 and application E45/5970), located 20kms to the south-east of Marble Bar in the East Pilbara of WA has also revealed lithium exploration potential.
Kalamazoo’s Marble Bar tenements are located immediately to the south of Global Lithiums’ (ASX: GL1) 10.5 million tonnes at 1 per cent lithium Archer deposit on the prospective margin of the Moolyella tin and tantalum alluvial field and contains known mapped pegmatites and lithium occurrences.
“Our exploration team has done a terrific job in such a short period of time to advance the lithium exploration potential in the Pilbara, not just at DOM’s Hill but at our nearby Marble Bar project,” Kalamazoo Resources director Paul Adams said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“Our previous exploration on these projects has been primarily focused on gold.
“To now be presented with the opportunity to investigate the project’s exciting lithium potential in one of the world’s major lithium provinces is a fantastic free kick for us.
“These project areas will now be subject by Kalamazoo to an immediate, systematic and well-funded exploration program, to which we look forward to keeping the market informed as we progress.”
