Flynn Gold has announced the results of its recent soil sampling program at the Parker Dome lithium-gold project in Western Australia, revealing the discovery of large-scale lithium anomalies.

The soil sampling outlines multiple lithium anomalies of up to 187ppm lithium oxide (Li₂O). The anomalies extend up to 2,300m length and 900m width.

Lithium-in-soil anomalies have corresponding and coincident anomalous values of caesium (Cs) and tantalum (Ta), which are considered key pathfinder elements for potential lithium mineralisation.

The anomalies overlie the Western and Eastern Pegmatite Trends, defined by historic RAB drilling where historic drill holes contain logged pegmatite with no assays for lithium.

The soil sampling program was designed to provide first-pass geochemical coverage over the Western and Eastern pegmatite trends, delivering the first systematic lithium and associated pathfinder assays for the project.

Flynn Gold’s Managing Director and CEO, Neil Marsto, said, “We are very pleased with the results of the first soil program at Parker Dome, which delineated a series of strong kilometre-long lithium soil anomalies in areas not yet drill tested for lithium, highlighting the exciting lithium potential of the project.

“The consistency and coherency of the lithium values within these large-scale anomalies is impressive. 

“The coincident pathfinder elements like tantalum and caesium as well as the identification of logged pegmatite in historic drill holes make these areas compelling targets which have been cheaply delineated.”

Planning is underway for a first-pass RC drilling program to test targets.
