Mt Holland emerges as significant Lithium discovery

15th July 2016

RC drill holes into the Earl Grey pegmatite return exceptional grades over very broad zones up to 50m true width with all holes ending in mineralisation


  • Spectacular first assays from the shallow Earl Grey pegmatite at the Mt Holland gold-lithium project near Southern Cross in WA
  • Results from the five holes submitted for assay include:
  • 52m @ 1.53% Li2O from 206m to end of hole
  • 45m @ 1.81% Li2O from 231m to end of hole, including 7m @ 2.23% Li2O from 255m and 5m @ 2.5% Li2O from 268m downhole
  • 39m @ 1.93% Li2O from 189m to end of hole including 12m @ 2.46% from 215m downhole
  • 11m @ 1.04% Li2O from 126m downhole and 27m @ 1.73% Li2O from 153m to end of hole including 9m @ 2.45% Li2O from 168m downhole
  • 34m @ 1.35% Li2O from 176m downhole and 29m @ 1.31% Li2O% including 6m @ 2.09% Li2O from 218m downhole,
  • All drillholes were terminated in Lithium mineralisation as they were originally drilled targeting gold
  • Follow-up RC drilling being planned; thickness of the Earl Grey pegmatite is still unknown; however the existing drill holes confirm a minimum true width of 50m.
  • Follow-up drill holes will target up-dip mineralisation towards surface and laterally; the mineralised zone is open in every direction
  • Mineralised zone dips around 20-25 degrees, ideal for open cut mining at a lower strip ratio; Earl Grey located on granted Mining Lease
  • Earl Grey pegmatite is located along strike within the same ultramafic unit as the Prince of Wales and Texas pegmatites which are yet to be tested for lithium but are confirmed by drilling to be 2.2km long and 6.3km long respectively (Refer Figures 3)


Kidman Resources (ASX: KDR) is pleased to advise that it has discovered a second high-grade lithium-bearing pegmatite at its Mt Holland gold project near Southern Cross in WA.

Assays from the Earl Grey pegmatite have returned sample grades of up to 3.94 per cent lithium (Li2O) and highly-mineralised intersections over widths of up to 52m. All holes have ended in mineralisation. Other strategic metals such as Tantalum (up to 255ppm Ta2O5), Caesium (up to 0.162% Cs2O) and Niobium (up to 359ppm Nb2O5) all show enrichment in zones within the Earl Grey Pegmatite.

Drilling extends high-grade Blue Vein gold deposit in WA

20 June 2016

Kidman now to commence infill drilling program to grow 372,000oz Resource by targeting high-grade areas and down-plunge extensions Kidman Resources (ASX: KDR) is pleased to advise that it has extended the highgrade Blue Vein deposit within its Mt Holland gold project in WA by 60m downdip.

The result, which came via an intersection of 3.8m at 5.47gpt within a wider zone of 13m @2.28 gpt , highlights the strong economic potential of Blue Vein, which has a Combined Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resource of 372,000oz at 2.39gpt (see ASX Announcement 18 December 2015).
