Mons Project Royale Prospect pegmatites

Drilling hits pegmatites below lithium soil anomaly at Mons Project in WA

Pegmatites intersected in eight holes over 1.3km strike at one prospect and in four holes over 640m at a second prospect; Assays expected within a fortnight.

  • Maiden lithium drilling at the Mons project in WA has intersected pegmatites below signficant lithium soil anomalies (up to 232ppm Li₂O) at the South Lake and Royale prospects
  • The drilling returned multiple substantial intersections of pegmatite within intermediate, mafic and ultramafic rock units (undivided) including:

    • Royale Prospect contained NRRC082 (168m from 72m), NRRC083 (189m from 64m), NRRC084 (176m from 64m), NRRC085 (147mfrom 48m), NRRC086 (153m from 75m), NRRC087 (113m from 75m), NRRC088 (170m from 54m), NRRC089 (125m from 72m)
    • South Lake Prospect contained NRRC078 (172m from 68m), NRRC079 (159m from 81m), NRRC080 (187m from 53m), NRRC081 (110m from 34m)
  • All samples have been submitted for assay as 4m composite and 1m intervals within mineralised zones; Results expected within a fortnight
  • Planning underway to extend the soil anomaly, which remains open along strike, and for follow-up drilling

Nimy Resources Geological Consultant Fergus Jockel said:

To intersect such extensive pegmatites below a strong lithium soil anomaly is highly promising. Favourable assays would confirm that the soil sampling is an effective lithium exploration tool at Mons and in this event we will move quickly to expand the anomaly, which remains open”.
