Reach (ASX:RR1) build 10k strike at Morrissey HillSeptember 15, 2023
Reach Resources‘ mapping program has discovered multiple, wide and strike extensive pegmatite swarms at the Morrissey Hill Lithium Project, now host to more than 50 preciously unidentified occurrences with a combined strike length exceeding 10 kilometres in Western Australia’s Yinnetharra region.
Individual outcropping pegmatites have shown strike lengths up to two kilometres and widths of 30 metres, with the majority occurring in a mixed package of sediments and mafic volcanics.
And there is significant potential for added strike from blind pegmatites, which recent maiden drilling has proven to be on-site.
Reach Chief Executive Jeremy Bower said the maiden program at Morrissey hill had already been extremely encouraging.
“Not only have we intersected significant pegmatite widths below surface and stacked down hole to ~400m, the extended time on site has also allowed the team to map some seriously good outcropping pegmatite targets right across the project area,” Mr Bower said.
He added that most importantly, the pegmatites are hosted within the same rocks hosting mineralisation at Delta Lithium’s next-door Malinda Project.
“Our new target areas are a significant development as they potentially extend our strike length at Morrissey Hill to over 10km across all the target areas. This 10km does not include the “blind” pegmatites that we know are on site, based on our intersections during the maiden drill campaign. The Future is within Reach,” he said.
Results from Phase 1 drilling at the Bonzer Prospect are due early next month, and Reach have got a comprehensive rock chip and geochemical soil sampling survey underway across the project.
Heritage surveys are already done for the majority of the company’s new targets, and it expects to get Phase 2 drilling underway this year.
The still-underexplored Yinnetharra and Gascoyne region has quickly become one of Australia’s most exciting frontiers of lithium activity.
Delta Lithium began a wave of discovery in the area, and some of Western Australia’s most prominent lithium players have been building up a large collection of territory in the region.
Reach has now added an extensive pegmatite discovery to the area and will get to work on finding out how much white gold is hosted within.
