Waratah Well drilling sniffs out more lithium

Drilling has recommenced at the Waratah Well lithium project in Western Australia. The project is part of the Zenith Lithium Joint Venture with EV Metals Group.

An initial phase of seven wide-spaced reverse circulation drill holes were completed to test a zone  of outcropping lithium-tantalum-rich pegmatite dykes, with the program confirming the presence of widespread lithium over a four kilometre zone.

This area is now a priority for testing with four fences of RC drill holes planned to test a further area for pegmatites under the soil cover, with the program anticipated to take three weeks to complete with assays some about six weeks thereafter.

Zenith Minerals executive chairman David Ledger said it was pleasing to see another drilling program running at Waratah Well to follow up the encouraging results that were delivered from the last campaign, undertaken in January of this year.

“This, coupled with the planned program to accelerate exploration activity at Split Rocks, demonstrates the continued commitment of our joint venture partner, EV Metals Group, to extensively explore across both our lithium projects pursuant to the agreement executed in January 2022,” he said.

The Waratah Well Project is located about 20 kilometres northwest of the regional town of Yalgoo in the Murchison Region of Western Australia.
