Macarthur’s Pilbara lithium tenements comprise of 11 exploration licenses that are prospective for ‘hard-rock’ lithium.
Macarthur has 11 Exploration Licenses in the Pilbara covering a total area of approximately ~721km2.
In May and June 2016, Macarthur completed two heliborne reconnaissance field trips across a portion of its tenements in the Pilbara region. Sampling across several pegmatites yielded encouraging results warranting further exploration.
In addition to the reconnaissance sampling, historical results of the Geological Society of WA (“GSWA”) include the Tambourah North lithium pegmatite located in Exploration Licence application 45/4848. A rock sample collected by Fortescue Metals Group Ltd in 2012 on the western edge of Exploration Licence application 45/4702 returned a result of 876 ppm Li (0.19% Li2O).
