Tempest Minerals (TEM) has found multiple anomalous geochemical zones through initial fieldwork at the Rocky Hill project, located 100 kilometres from Perth.
The company has found trace elements consistent with rocks that are known to host lithium pegmatites.
Under the fieldwork, Tempest took more than 60 surface samples across the project and submitted it for analysis.
The soil sample results include a peak value of 60.3 parts per million (ppm) lithium and need further investigation.
Additionally, Tempest detected lithium–caesium–tantalum (LCT) and pathfinder elements in high ranges in soil samples.
Despite finding a number of anomalies in this initial exploration campaign, the majority of the tenure remains untested and the significant additional of additional tenure to the north, west and south will facilitate further and extension of the identified anomalies.
Tempest is planning further geochemical sampling and mapping.
On the market today, TEM was up 6.15 per cent and trading at 6.9 cents per share at 12:31 pm AEST.
