New Age Exploration has found additional high priority lithium targets at its extensive Central Pilbara gold-lithium project in WA.

Detailed geochemical analysis of the ultrafine soils taken at the Brahman Project have identified high priority lithium targets for drill-testing – this is on top of those flagged for follow-up drilling last week.

Notably, the Brahman project is adjacent to the tenure of Golden State Mining (ASX:GSM), where they have recently made the significant discovery of the Nomad Lithium prospect.

The company is targeting lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatites similar to other Central Pilbara spodumene-rich deposits like Mineral Resources’ (ASX:MIN) Wodgina project,  Pilbara Minerals’ (ASX:PLS) Pilgangoora lithium mining operations and De Grey Mining’s (ASX:DEG) recently discovered Hemi gold deposit.

Pending the completion of necessary program of works (POW) and land access approvals, drilling operations will be initiated in the upcoming field season.


Drilling planned in the near-term

“Sugden Geoscience’s continued meticulous geochemical analysis at the Brahman Project has confirmed additional high-priority LCT lithium pegmatite targets,” New Age Exploration (ASX:NAE) executive director Joshua Wellisch said.

“Ongoing comprehensive evaluation of the drilling and geophysical data aims to refine these priority targets for the forthcoming field season in the Pilbara region.

“We are preparing to initiate the next geochemical sampling program without delay, aiming to augment the known mineralisation trends.

“Simultaneously, we are gearing up for the upcoming drill program, which will cover all the identified high-priority drill targets in various locations across the Central Pilbara region.

“This represents exciting progress as we approach the next phase of drilling, armed with an extensive array of high-priority targets throughout the region.”

To further enhance the drilling strategy at Brahman, ongoing evaluation of previous drilling and geophysical data will be conducted to precisely determine the optimal drill locations.
