Eastern Resources (EFE) has encountered “outstanding” lithium mineralisation at the Trigg Hill lithium-tantalum project in Western Australia.

Mapping, rock chip sampling and soil sampling have been underway since March 2022, with assays from the first 124 samples confirming visual observations of previously reported lithium mineralisation.

Eastern Resources said the sampling work returned results of up to 2.28 per cent lithium oxide, 1.23 per cent rubidium oxide, 1552 parts per million (ppm) caesium oxide, 514 ppm tantalum oxide and 2921 ppm tin oxide.

Results for a further 231 soil samples are pending analysis, and subject to results, the soil sampling will be extended to other areas.

Furthermore, drill site and access planning are well advanced with the aim to test the vertical and low-angle mineralised pegmatites to understand the lithium mineralisation.

The Trigg Hill project lies in WA’s East Pilbara, roughly 75 kilometres southeast of Pilbara Minerals’ (PLS) Pilgangoora Lithium mine.

It is an old tantalum and tin mine that operated during the 1960s and the early 19808s.

Shares in Eastern Resources were up 15.38 per cent and were trading at 3 cents at 10:55 am AEST.
