Eastern Resources (EFE) has confirmed multiple pegmatites at the Trigg Hill lithium-tantalum project in Western Australia’s East Pilbara region.
Mapping at the former Trigg Hill tantalum-tin mine confirmed the presence of a large number of pegmatites over at least three kilometres of strike and up to 1.2 kilometres in width east of the excluded Curlew emerald mine.
Of these is the East Curlew lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatite which extends for at least 1800 metres. Previous rock chip sampling by Lithium Australia (LIT) returned up to 2.9 per cent lithium dioxide in this area.
Some of the pegmatites were visually confirmed to contain lepidolite and formanite. The presence of previously reported spodumene hasn’t yet been confirmed and will require further analysis.
Eastern Resources is continuing field mapping and sampling at Trigg Hill to identify drill targets. The company is also waiting on assays from 52 rock chip samples collected in March.
A program of work has been lodged and is pending approval with a drilling program expected to begin in July.
EFE shares were up 6.52 per cent to trade at 4.9 cents at 11:00 am AEST.
