Kingsland (ASX:KNG) returns ‘exceptional’ large lithium area in WA

Kingsland Minerals initial soil sampling has returned a spread of assays up to 200 parts per million lithium and defined a large, high-grading lithium soil anomaly at the popular Lake Johnston lithium district in Western Australia.

The Australian graphite-focused explorer said the ‘exceptional assays’ from Lake Johnston Lithium Project were produced with 500-by-200-metre soil sampling at the project on Lake Johnston greenstone belt in the Southern Cross Province.

WA-based Kingsland is currently doing follow-up sampling at the area to sort out drill targets, with the 6.5-by-3-kilometre anomaly providing plenty of opportunity for expansion given it remains open along strike to the north and south.

Kingsland Minerals Managing Director Richard Maddocks said the company’s results at the project showed there was huge lithium potential at the significant Australian lithium area of Lake Johnston.

“We had strong evidence for the presence of pegmatites and lithium from sampling historic drill holes and this recent soil sampling program confirms the presence of a significant, extensive high-grade lithium anomaly in soils,” the geologist said.

“In light of these outstanding results and the potential for pegmatite-hosted lithium mineralisation, we plan to define drill targets through soil sampling to identify the highest-grade areas.”

The company also has ground in the Northern Territory, including the wholly owned, high-grade, and potentially large-scale Leliyn Graphite Project.

“The Lake Johnston Lithium Project complements Kingsland’s portfolio of future energy minerals and adds to the Leliyn Graphite Project and the Cleo Uranium Project in the Northern Territory,” Mr Maddocks said.

Kingsland will expand its soil sampling efforts to new ground to the north of the E63/2068 tenement area where the anomaly was delineated.

This new tenement upgrades Kingsland’s Lake Johnston Lithium Project area in WA to 770 square kilometres.

The company has its flagship Leliyn Graphite Project in the NT firmly in its sights, confirming metallurgical test-work was ongoing and its maiden mineral resource was on track for a March debut.

Kingsland is hoping the high-grading project will prove its suspicions of a world class asset.
