(TSXV: MMS) (ASX: MIO) (OTCQB: MMSDF) (the Company or Macarthur), is pleased to note that Infinity Mining Limited (ASX:IMI) has announced the intersection of high-grade lithium during its recent Reverse Circulation (RC) Drilling Program at the Tambourah South Project in Western Australia. The highlights from this recent drilling campaign are:
- Shallow pegmatites have been recorded in all RC holes completed with up to 25 metre thickness below the surface;
- Multiple stacked pegmatites have a combined strike length of over 1.5 km, these areas remain untested by drilling.
Significant drill assays include:
- Drillhole TM23RC022:
1m @ 1.45% Li2O, 1,285 ppm Rb, 136 ppm Cs & 65 ppm Ta from 66m.
7m @ 79 ppm Ta from 61m.
- Drillhole TM23RC023:
8m @ 118 ppm Ta from 70m.
- Drillhole TM23RC025:
5m @ 84 ppm Ta from 0m
1m @ 0.88% Li2O & 1,210 ppm Rb from 15m.
3m @ 81 ppm Ta from 21m.
1m @ 0.91% Li2O & 1,050 ppm Rb from 22m.
- Drillhole TM23RC026:
3m @ 0.99% Li2O & 1,250 ppm Rb, 100 ppm Cs & 110 ppm Ta from 19m including 1m @ 1.41% Li2O & 1,045 ppm Rb & 81 ppm Ta from 20m.
22m @ 91 ppm Ta from 17m.
2m @ 1.38% Li2O & 1,258 ppm Rb, 125 ppm Cs & 105 ppm Ta from 30m including 1m @ 2.10% Li2O, 1,060 ppm Rb, 119 ppm Cs & 80 ppm Ta from 31m.
Cameron McCall - Executive Chairman and CEO of Macarthur Minerals commented:
"Infinity should be congratulated on the identification and ongoing development of a mineralised Lithium-Caesium-Tantalum (LCT) system at Tambourah South. Located in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia, Tambourah South is situated among major lithium producers such as Pilbara Minerals' Pilgangoora Operations, Mineral Resources' Wodgina Project, Global Lithium's Archer project and emerging exploration ventures like Wildcat Resources' Tabba Tabba Lithium Project. Macarthur is eagerly anticipating the results of the Ambient Noise Tomography (ANT) survey imaging undertaken in March/April 2023 at Tambourah South to see whether the mineralised zone thickens at depth. If this system proves to extend to depth below the 1,500 metre surface expression, this may lead to a significant and promising new discovery for Infinity."
Macarthur holds 21.65% of the issued equity and is the largest shareholder in Infinity, which is an Australian mining exploration company focused primarily on renewable rare earth minerals in Western Australia.
Macarthur's spinoff to Infinity Mining, of its non-core renewable energy assets in 2021 has allowed the Company to commit its full focus to its flagship Lake Giles Iron Project in Western Australia.
