GreenTech Metals Ltd (ASX: GRE) has received assay results from a further 30 reconnaissance samples taken at its West Pilbara Lithium projects.
These latest samples were collected from within the Osborne JV tenement, a joint venture (51% GRE: 49% ARV) held with Artemis Resources Ltd (ASX: ARV). The Osborne JV sits to the east of the company’s Ruth Well Project.
Executive director, Thomas Reddicliffe, commented: “GreenTech is very encouraged by the discovery of this second lithium pegmatite trend at the Osborne JV with Artemis. Initial assays from this new lithium pegmatite trend indicate a potentially higher-grade lithium trend than our original discovery and highlights the potential to discover further lithium pegmatite zones within the existing tenement package.”
The existing Kobe prospect sits within the company’s Ruth Well Project tenements and extends eastward into the Osborne JV tenement located in the West Pilbara region of Western Australian, where previous rock chip samples have returned assay results of up to 1.8% Li2O1.
The results from these latest reconnaissance rock chip samples have returned lithium grades of up to 3.6% Li2O.
Additionally, ground reconnaissance has confirmed that the Osborne pegmatite bearing zone is a separate mineralized east-west tending zone to the south of the Kobe trend, and potentially represents an expansion to the extent of lithium mineralization in the project areas.
GreetnTech is currently mobilizing field crews to the site to undertake the following exploration activities over the coming weeks, leading up to the maiden drill programme.
Mr. Reddicliffe continued: “GreenTech has established a great foundation in this growing lithium province in the West Pilbara and these latest results further reinforce our belief that there is significant lithium pegmatite potential on our tenements.”
