Belararox’s drone survey identifies lithium pegmatite targets at Bullabulling
Link copied to
Belararox is finding itself with no shortage of lithium targets at its wholly-owned Bullabulling project in Western Australia following the recent acquisition of drone aerial imagery.
The survey identified several new potential lithium-caesium-tantalum pegmatite targets associated with the adjacent Bali Monzogranite along with additional targets which are present as gold in sheeted quartz veins.
Adding further interest, several lithium-rich pegmatites have been identified by Belararox (ASX:BRX) in the same structural corridor adjacent to the Bali Monzonite and other potential pegmatite source rocks.
Notable lithium projects and prospects in the immediate vicinity include Future Battery Minerals’ Kangaroo Lithium Project, the historical Ubini mine and the Red Panda prospect.
“The continued exploration success at Bullabulling is an exciting development in the pipeline of activities for Belararox and represents a real opportunity in a highly prospective LCT pegmatite district in WA,” managing director Arvind Misra noted.
“Follow-up field mapping and sampling of the highly prospective targets is soon to commence, and we aim to continue to update the market as activities progress.”
The company plans to finalise review and interpretation of the recently acquired drone aerial imagery and other available satellite imagery assessing for potential pegmatite and sheeted quartz vein targets.
It will then carry out follow-up field reconnaissance mapping, rock chip sampling and portable XRF analysis of all identified targets.
Systematic surface sampling will be carried out on the most prospective targets.
Bullabulling comprises 26 tenements covering 50km2 to the west of Coolgardie in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia.
Over 347 million tonnes of lithium resources have been estimated by ASX listed companies within a 185km radius.
Notable results include Future Battery Minerals’ (ASX:FBM) 29m intercept grading 1.36% Li2O from 38m down-hole at the Kangaroo Hill project.
