Voltaic is mapping out lithium targets at Ti Tree

Voltaic Strategic Resources is accelerating target generation efforts at its Ti Tree lithium project in Western Australia’s Gascoyne region amidst encouraging results from a neighbouring third party project.
A field crew is currently on the ground following up on targets in the field and assessing logistics for an upcoming regional soil sampling campaign across the entire Volta corridor.
Voltaic Strategic Resources (ASX:VSR) has also started detailed geophysical and structural interpretation analysis in collaboration with Southern Geoscience Consultants (SGC) to complement the company’s pipeline of targets.
This comes as Red Dirt Metals (ASX:RDT) reported excellent Li2O grades from surface which demonstrates significant down-dip continuity at the Yinnietharra M1 pegmatite while identifying regional targets along regional pegmatite/schist(s) units.
The company noted that its neighbour’s results confirmed its structural modelling and interpretation that the entire Volta corridor is highly prospective for lithium.
“Voltaic have embarked on the next phase of target generation at our Ti Tree project utilising highly regarded consultants SGC. This collaboration will expand our pipeline of targets and accelerate vectoring and ranking across the extensive 22km Volta corridor,” chief executive officer Michael Walshe said.
“In order to gather critical data before the onset of the rain season, we will undertake both a targeted heli-supported ‘Phase-3’ exploration program, and a broad-spaced soil sampling campaign across Volta in the coming weeks.
“We have expedited these activities based on highly encouraging results from the neighbouring Yinnietharra lithium discovery, where the M1 pegmatite prospect shows significant down-dip continuity with excellent Li2O grades from surface.”
He expressed the company’s belief that Volta is highly prospective for lithium and has the scale potential to host multiple resources and become a globally significant region.
The company will also release assay results from its Phase 1 and 2 surface geochemical sampling campaigns soon.
“Favourable assays will demonstrate that the in-situ granitic intrusions within Ti Tree are fertile for lithium mineralisation,” Walshe added.
