MinRex Resources has started RC maiden drilling at its Tambourah North Lithium Project in WA.

The company plans to drill 12 RC holes for ~1,540m to test Zone 1 stacked and sheeted pegmatites hosting 2.56% lithium oxide, 1.59% lithium, 1.293 ppm rubidium and 40 ppm tantalum from mineralized surface rock chip sampling in April.

Notably, the project area has become a lithium exploration hub with recent maiden RC drilling programs launched by Infinity Mining Limited (ASX:IMI), Rivers Gold Limited (ASX:RGL) and Trek Metals Limited (ASX:TKM).

And all of these players have confirmed spodumene, rock chip tested high grade lithium assay results and petrophysical identification.

Tambourah a ‘lithium hotspot’

“We are excited to have commenced drilling over the Tambourah North Lithium Project as part of the last drilling program for 2022,” MinRex Resources (ASX:MRR) MD George Karageorge says.

“Based on the geological mapping and high-grade surface rock chip that yielded high grade lithium rock chips mineralisation on surface outcropping pegmatites.

“Tambourah has become a lithium hotspot with Infinity Mining, and Rivers Gold launching maiden drilling programs with MinRex sharing common boundaries over the untested Pegmatites with modern exploration techniques.”

Drilling wrapping up at Talga

The company has also completed drilling at its Talga-Moolyella North Lithium-Tin-Tantalum Project near Marble Bar, with 39 RC drillholes, totalling 2,825m completed.

The drilling targeted the Western, Northern and Eastern Pegmatite Zones and the stacked Pegmatites outcropping over highly elevated Li soil anomalies that have never been drill tested.

It also tested the Eastern Zone Pegmatite on drill hole MBRC047 which intersected three Pegmatites at 0-14m, 20m-25m, 42m-46m in muscovite-albite-garnet-blue quartz pegmatite.

All drill chips have now been dispatched to Nagrom Labs for analysis.
