Dynamic Metals kick starts exploration at Pioneer Dome in emerging WA lithium belt
Dynamic Metals has commenced lithium exploration work at Pioneer Dome West (PDW), part of the larger Widgiemooltha project in WA.
Up to 2000 soil samples will be taken as part of reconnaissance exploration program on recently granted tenement E15/1721 at Pioneer Dome – which is considered highly prospective for Lithium-Caesium-Tantalum (LCT) pegmatites.
Previous exploration activities at PDW were focussed on gold and nickel potential, so limited historical geochemical information on lithium exists across the tenement.
It is estimated the program will take approximately 4 weeks to complete, and targets generated following the receipt of assays will be assessed and priority ranked for drill testing later in the year.
The Widgiemooltha area has emerged as a significant lithium belt hosting numerous spodumene deposits, with the Mt Marion, Bald Hill, and Buldania projects all within 25km of Dynamic Metals’ (ASX:DYM) tenure.
Notably, the PDW tenement covers 20km of highly prospective strike along the western side of Essential Metals’ (ASX:ESS) Dome North lithium project which hosts a Mineral Resource of 11.2Mt at 1.2% Li2O2.
That project is now under proposed acquisition by Develop Global (ASX:DVP).
Permitting for the next phase of drilling at Widgiemooltha is underway at the Democrat prospect (nickel) and is expected to be undertaken post completion of this soil sampling program.
Dynamic is also awaiting assay results from 48 holes drilled across the Sunday Soak (nickel), Mandilla (gold) and Higginsville (gold) prospects – with these results anticipated to be returned by the end of July.
