Data analysis identifies lithium potential at Tempest Minerals’ Euro Project in WA

ASX-listed explorer Tempest Minerals has announced that its Euro Project in the Yalgoo region of Western Australia hosts potential lithium mineralisation.

A systematic review of historic data at the project has resulted in the identification of lithium-bearing pegmatites. The legacy mapping indicates that at least one of the multiple generations of pegmatites at the Euro Project are strongly lepidolite bearing.

Exploration at the Euro Project, which covers 176 km2 of Tempest’s 100% owned tenements within its Warriedar portfolio, has previously detected gold and iron mineralisation, including Tempest’s recently completed drilling campaign which indicates the presence of a significant gold mineralisation corridor.

Tempest is currently evaluating methods to explore further including correlating existing data and looking for additional targets through geochemistry and remote sensing.

The latest indications of lithium potential at the Euro Project further highlight both the fertility and multi-commodity potential of the project and the overall Tempest portfolio, the company said in a market update.

The company has six exploration projects on its books in the Walgoo region, encompassing a range of precious and base metals including gold, copper, lithium and tungsten.

Tempest also recently announced a 97% increase to its landholding at the 100% owned Meleya project. The new area is highly prospective for gold, base metals and contains known iron ore mineralisation.
