Jadar Resources (JDR) has expanded its lithium footprint in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
The company entered an agreement to acquire four new tenements which are placed within 100 kilometres of three major lithium projects, including the Wodgina lithium and Pilgangoora lithium mines, which are two of the largest hard rock lithium deposits in the world.
JDR’s new licences also brings it within 100 kilometres of its own Shaw River lithium project which it’s currently conducting due diligence on to acquire an 80 per cent interest.

“The team is busy exploring for new opportunities and doing the work required on the ground to ensure that each acquisition is continually adding value to the wider portfolio and the company.”
Jadar has a 30-day due diligence period to review historical data and “conduct field reconnaissance work to evaluate the project’s prospectivity.”
