Albion to follow up on lithium anomalies at Mongers Lake

Albion Resources (ASX:ALB) is planning to kick off a follow-up program on recently defined lithium anomalies at the Rothsay South prospect, part of the Mongers Lake Project in Western Australia. 

Results from a maiden soil sampling program conducted at the project revealed two large, coherent lithium-in-soil anomalies over at least 2km of strike. 

Albion says the lithium-in-soil values are high, with the anomalies defined by more than 100 parts per million (ppm) lithium oxide. However, the company noted that the core of the anomalies are more than 200ppm lithium oxide. 

The LCT1 target, for example, measured up to 286ppm lithium oxide, while LCT2 is up to 355ppm lithium oxide. 

Albion says these two anomalies and coincident caesium-rubidium-beryllium support the potential for lithium spodumene pegmatite discoveries. 

A plan is now being developed and finalised to extend the soil sampling to the west of the LCT2 anomaly, which remains open in that direction, as well as some infill soil samples in critical areas where there are compelling lithium-in-soil values. 

A geologist will carry out reconnaissance rock sampling over the peak lithium-in-soil values, along with follow-up activities on several gold and arsenic-in-soil anomalies. 

Albion Resources is a mineral explorer focused on discovering “high-grade” base metal and gold projects in Western Australia.
