Askari Metals (ASX:AS2) has commenced fieldwork at its WA Myrnas Hill lithium play with geotechs to chase up interesting areas on-site using satellite imagery, with a good deal of targets already logged.
Over 600 samples will be taken in a soil drilling program while reconnaissance and mapping will be conducted wherever promising rock samples are identified.
The company is confident its Myrnas acreage is likely to contain lithium, tin, and tantalum mineralisation, given that the geological peculiars replicate that of Global Lithium’s (ASX:GL1) Archer deposit.
That deposit sits within Global’s Marble Bar Lithium Project; which boasts a resource of 10.5M tonnes of ore at 1% lithium.
Myrnas Hill is prospective for both lithium and gold. The company picked the tenement up in August this year, at the time describing its location in a Goldilocks zone (as evidenced by the success of counterparts operating in the area.)
“Myrnas Hill is complementary to our district-scale Yarrie Lithium Project, and we see this as a terrific opportunity to expand our footprint in areas that have a high chance of exploration success,” Askari exploration chief Johan Lambrechts said.
”We have seen high degrees of success with the use of soil auger drilling in the eastern Pilbara region.”
“We will undertake an extensive soil auger program of more than 600 samples as well as rock sampling and reconnaissance across the project area.”
