Shaw River (Li-Ta-Sn-REE)
The Shaw River Project (E45/4601) is located due east of Tamboura North and contains abundant late-stage pegmatites swarms. Historically, 1,770.71t of tin concentrate and 84.33t of tantalite concentration was produced on the project.
Historical heavy stream sediment sampling has outlined very high-grade Sn-Ta mineralised zones (up to 42.2% tin and 3.41% tantalum) within extensive pegmatite occurrences. Pegmatites are the sole primary source of the tin and tantalum mineralisation. No lithium exploration has been conducted to date.
Reconnaissance RC drilling over outcropping spodumene bearing pegmatites is planned to commence August-October 2022, supplemented by additional geological mapping and rock chip sampling.
