Charger Metals Kicks Off Drilling At Lake Johnston Lithium Project

Charger Metals Ltd (ASX:CHR) has kicked off a reverse circulation (RC) drill program at its Lake Johnston Lithium Project in Western Australia.

At the field, the two programs will test priority lithium targets for upto 5000 metres at the greater Medcalf Prospect and the Mt Gordon Prospect, where a high-grade spodumene system was previously identified.

Looking ahead, the drilling is expected to take 6 – 8 weeks to complete, depending on results and potential delays due to inclement weather.

“High-grade spodumene system”

Charger managing director, Aidan Platel, commented: “We are excited to have commenced our RC drill programmes at Lake Johnston.

“The priority drill targets are in and around the Medcalf Prospect where we have previously confirmed a high-grade spodumene system.

“We are also eager to drill our first holes into the Mt Gordon Prospect which has excellent lithium potential, and will keep the market informed as results are received.”

Drill summary

At the greater Medcalf Prospect, drilling will test for potential strike extensions to the known high-grade lithium mineralisation.

Notably, it will also target the 1.2 kilometres strike of outcropping spodumene-bearing pegmatites.

These pegmatites trends to the southwest from the main Medcalf mineralisation, where rock chips resulted in up to 4.2% Li2O.

At the Mt Gordon Prospect, RC drilling will target the large soil anomalies that extend for over three kilometres into the adjacent Jaegermeister Lithium Prospect delineated by TG Metals.

What’s more, the work is being funded by Rio Tinto Exploration Pty Limited under RTX’s farm-in agreement with Charger.

About Lake Johnston

The Lake Johnston Lithium Project is situated 450 kilometres east of Perth, in the Yilgarn Province of Western Australia.

At the project, lithium prospects occur within a 50-kilometre-long corridor along the southern and western margin of the Lake Johnston granite batholith.

Importantly, key target areas include the Medcalf Spodumene Prospect, the Mt Gordon Lithium Prospect and much of the Mount Day LCT pegmatite field, prospective for lithium and tantalum minerals.
