Dynamic Metals shifts focus to lithium potential at Widgiemooltha Project in WA

Dynamic Metals (ASX:DYM) has shifted its exploration focus to lithium, with a ‘large’ soil sampling campaign set to begin shortly at the Widgiemooltha Project in Western Australia. 

This news comes after the company reported follow-up assay results from its second drilling program at the Dordie Far West nickel prospect, which is part of the Widgiemooltha Project. 

Following a string of nickel hits in February, Dynamic was eager to conduct a fast follow-up program by collaring drillholes on existing cleared tracks so that permitting wait time was minimal. 

there are no ‘significant’ nickel assays to report from this program

The company says 2 reverse circulation (RC) holes were designed to target the western limb of the modelled synform structure and intersect the basal contact in fresh rock. Dynamic notes the drillholes did not intersect the basal contact as modelled, and as a result, there are no ‘significant’ nickel assays to report from this program. 

The fresh rock nickel target remains to be drill tested, and the Dynamic team is progressing its plans for prospect and district-scale follow-up drilling, alongside assessing the feasibility of geophysical surveys to continue to refine drill targets as part of its ‘measured’ approach to exploration. 

Assays are still pending for 48 drillholes from the recently completed aircore programs at the Sunday Soak, Mandilla, and Higginsville prospects. These results are expected to be returned by the end of July 2023. 

Dynamic Metals is an exploration company focused on advancing a ‘highly prospective’ portfolio of future-facing critical minerals projects in Australia. The company’s flagship Widgiemooltha project covers an extensive area of 880km-square extending between Norseman and Kambalda.
