Following a geological review of the potential for lithium mineralisation in the Yilgarn and the Pilbara Marindi has applied for six Exploration Licences covering a total area of approximately 850 square kilometres on the eastern and southern sides of the Forrestania Greenstone Belt, north of Ravensthorpe.
This greenstone belt, which hosts the highly successful Bounty Gold Mine and Flying Fox Nickel deposits, was recognised historically for its strategic metals potential but has had virtually no exploration for these commodities since the 1970s. Marindi’s applications build on information gathered from previous field experience working in the belt in the 1980s.
Marindi’s initial exploration focus will be on the High Priority Lithium areas of Mt Hope and South Ironcap.
The accompanying plan shows the extent of the Marindi tenements.
