Iris Metals (ASX:IR1) has uncovered multiple, wide, high-grade and shallow lithium intersections at its 100% owned Beecher Project in America’s South Dakota.

The Beecher pegmatite trend was mined sporadically between the 1920s and 1950s for lithium, beryllium, tantalum, mica and feldspar.

The results include 60m @ 1.21% Li₂O (true width) from 16m in BDH-23-001, including: 40m @ 1.40% Li₂O from 36m; and 22m @ 1.90% Li₂O from 46m.

Results from an additional 32 holes are pending assay results and are expected to be received in the coming weeks.


Perpetual Resources (ASX:PEC) has just signed an additional binding option agreement with RTB Geologia E Mineração LTDA to acquire a further three highly prospective exploration permits in Brazil – which cover about 5,000 more hectares in the lithium-rich region, comprising an area dubbed the Ponte Nova Prospects.

They expand on the area PEC acquired in mid-July, which is 20km from the Grota do Cirilo spodumene mine owned by C$5bn capped Sigma Lithium Corp (TSXV:SGML).

Latin Resources’ (ASX:LRS) advanced Colina project is also nearby, forming a pegmatite corridor between the projects, which potentially runs further northeast, about 40km, into these new permit areas.

West Cobar Metals (ASX:WC1)
has clocked a major increase in the resource base of the Salazar clay-hosted rare earth element (REE) project in WA to 190Mt of 1172ppm TREO (total rare earth oxide) comprising Indicated + Inferred Resources.

“Combined with the metallurgical testwork results at the Newmont deposit, the Salazar Project is an outstanding and substantial REE clay deposit with 190Mt at 1172ppm,” MD Matt Szwedzicki said.


Balkan Mining (ASX:BMM) has received an exploration permit for the Gorge Lithium Project in the Georgia Lake pegmatite district of northern Ontario, Canada.

In actual fact, BMM has been eyeing up its further expansion into Canada for some time, having recently entered into a binding purchase and sale agreement to acquire 100% of the Barbara Lithium exploration project located in Ontario’s Thunder Bay North Mining District.


And Raiden Resources (ASX:RDN FRA:YM4) has reached a binding agreement to farm out up to 75% in the Kalabak copper-gold project in Bulgaria to Velocity Minerals.
