Odessa Minerals Limited (ASX: ODE) has provided a further update on the exploration programme underway at its Yinnetharra Lithium Project at Lockier Range in the Gascoyne region, Western Australia.
David Lenigas, executive director of Odessa, said, “Our on-going exploration programme has certainly raised our expectations of a potential lithium discovery at our Yinnetharra Lockier Range Project. With over 56km of outcropping pegmatites now mapped, many of which are close to previously identified high-order lithium soil anomalies, our main priority is to receive the assay results and commence interpretation to define LCT drill targets. Drilling these targets as soon as possible is Odessa’s objective.”
Pegmatites at the Yinnetharra Lockier Range project have surpassed 56,000m of total strike-length mapped, with an additional 10,400m strike-length of previously undiscovered pegmatites now mapped and sampled at the central pegmatite field and Mt Yaragner. A total of 187 rock and 1,900 soil samples have been collected to date.
Additionally, the newly completed soil sampling programme infilled the company’s current lithium-in-soil anomalies to 100m x 100m spacing and has provided higher definition data on potential drill targets. Rock chip samples have been collected from the outcropping pegmatites. Odessa aims to delineate fertile pegmatites and generate drill ready LCT pegmatite targets.
The on-ground team are continuing to systematically map and sample the >30,000m strike length of pegmatites at the southern pegmatite field.
