Multiple high priority lithium anomalies defined at Mt Dove

Seven high priority lithium anomalies have been defined at Flynn Gold’s (ASX:FG1) Mt Dove project in the Pilbara region of WA.

The anomalies come from an in-fill soil sampling program which was designed to evaluate multiple lithium and gold anomalies outlined from an ultra-fine fraction (UFF) soil sampling program.

The seven high priority anomalies reveal broad areas of lithium soil anomalism, extending lengths between 600m and 3.1km plus widths of between 200m and 1km.

Furthermore, the anomalies lie with the predominantly shallow sand covered eastern part of Mt Dove.

In addition to the seven high-priority coherent lithium geochemical anomalies, 11 lower priority, less coherent lithium anomalies were also identified.

The original UFF soil survey focused on gold exploration while the recent in-fill soil sampling program primarily focused on lithium mineralisation and involved assaying the soil samples for lithium and pathfinder elements with sodium peroxide fusion.

Flynn Gold managing director and chief executive Nail Marston says these findings highlight the lithium potential of Mt Dove.

“The Mt Dove in-fill soil sampling program has confirmed seven broad areas of lithium and associated pathfinder element anomalism, highlighting the exciting lithium potential of the project,” he said.

“The aim of our fieldwork has been to identify pegmatite bodies across our tenements from mapping, sampling and target generation for drill testing.”

Flynn Gold will now undertake ground-based gravity and geophysical surveys plus air core drilling to test the soil anomalies.
