Yilmia Lithium Project Map
The Zenith Minerals’ Yalmia Lithium Project is located near Coolgardie, Western Australia. Zenith signed a binding option agreement to secure up to a 100% interest in the lithium rights in June 2023.
The target is a Lithium pegmatite greenstone host sequence, featuring a similar geological setting to the recent, nearby Kangaroo Hills lithium pegmatite discovery by Future Battery Metals (ASX:FBM), inferred to contain an 8km long greenstone package that is considered highly prospective for lithium pegmatites on the southern margin of the Woolgangie Monzogranite.
A strong aeromagnetic anomaly is coincident with ultramafic and mafic rock units that are shown on government geological maps, further east of the Yilmia project area. That same aeromagnetic anomaly extends through the northern portion of the project area, under soil cover, indicating that the greenstone belt likely extends further west through the Yilmia project tenure.
Furthermore, the presence of greenstone within the Yilmia project area, is also supported by a historic soil sampling program and a historical EM geophysical survey that were conducted as part of nickel exploration in the area of interest to Zenith.
A program of aircore drilling is planned to test the lithium target zone with the Company commencing the permitting process to allow the program to proceed.
