Belararox has a 5km-long lithium trend in its sights
Special Report: Infill soil sampling has commenced at Belararox’ Bullabulling gold and lithium project in WA’s eastern Goldfields region spanning six targets across a 5km anomalous lithium zone.
Bullabulling is 11.5km east of Future Battery Minerals’ (ASX:FBM) Kangaroo lithium project where 29m @ 1.36% Li2O from 38m downhole was intercepted in a 14-hole Phase 1 RC drill campaign earlier this year.
Those results were from fractionalised pegmatites close to Belararox’ (ASX:BRX) tenements.
They also sit within a similar geological setting and are analogous to the pegmatites identified at Bullbulling, where elevated lithium values have been identified.
1581 soil samples collected across highly prospective areas for lithium and gold mineralisation revealed several strong anomalies for both elements.
Up to 324ppm lithium was returned associated with elevated caesium (Cs) and tantalum (Ta), confirming LCT pegmatite-type targets within mafic metamorphic rocks adjacent to the Bali Monzogranite.
“Bullabulling is in an exciting part of Western Australia with a lot of exciting lithium exploration occurring next door to our project,” MD Arvind Misra told Stockhead
“While Bullabulling was originally a gold project for us, it’s now clear there is the potential for a significant lithium find and we are excited to begin infill soil sampling.”
Further geological analyses of the initial soil sample results show an anomalous lithium trend that extends across 5km and consists of six significant lithium anomalies. BRX has now commenced an infill soil program across those targets.
In tandem, geological mapping and rock chip sampling program is being undertaken with results anticipated by the end of January to inform locations for a potential drilling campaign next year.
Regional sampling will also be conducted next year to investigate lithium potential to the south of the Bullabulling concession.
Belararox MD Arvind Misra says the infill soils field program will be completed by the end of this week.
“This initiative will offer critical insights that will inform our lithium drilling program, which our exploration team is diligently progressing,” Misra says.
“The promising initial results along a 5km zone, coupled with the current strong interest in lithium projects in WA further bolster my optimism about our endeavours.”
