First-Pass Results up to 0.34% Li₂O at Chalby Chalby
Extensive pegmatites mapped across Kingfisher’s highly prospective Gascoyne Tenure.
Priority 3.3km by 3km target area identified at Chalby Chalby, with initial pegmatite samples returning anomalous lithium and highlighting fertility for lithium mineralisation.
Chalby Chalby is along strike from known Thirty Three Suite pegmatites which are also the host of lithium mineralisation at Delta Lithium’s (ASX:DLI) Yinnetharra Project.
Initial rock chip results include:
0.34% Li₂O (MWGS2493)
0.25% Li₂O (MWGS2500)
0.16% Li₂O (MWGS2348)
0.11% Li₂O (MWGS2470)
High-priority follow-up sampling is underway and is targeting extensions to fertile pegmatites as well as potential additional pegmatites in the centre of the Chalby Chalby target area.
Kingfisher Mining Limited (ASX:KFM) (“Kingfisher” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the first-pass results from its initial exploration targeting lithium-bearing pegmatites in the Chalba area of the highly prospective Gascoyne Province.
Kingfisher’s Executive Director and CEO James Farrell commented: “Our first-pass lithium exploration sampling has delivered exciting initial results immediately along strike from known Thirty Three Suite Pegmatites; the pegmatites that host Delta Lithium’s Yinnetharra Project which is just 45km to the northeast of our tenements.
A large area of pegmatite dykes has been identified at our new Chalby Chalby target, with highly encouraging initial lithium assays and fertility results providing a clear path forward for immediate follow-up to advance the lithium potential of our Gascoyne tenements.
Our team is currently on site and work to advance our lithium targets will continue alongside our on-going mapping and sampling which is targeting large-scale carbonatite intrusions”
