Venus Metals says it has identified a strong lithium anomaly at its Youanmi lithium project in Western Australia’s Murchison region that may indicate pegmatite-hosted lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) mineralisation.

The discovery was made from a reconnaissance soil sampling program in an area not previously explored for LCT style mineralisation where several pegmatite outcrops are located.

Venus says the anomaly measures about 1.4km by 0.4km with a maximum lithium concentration using ultrafine soil fractions of up to 305 parts per million (ppm).

The latest discovery sits around 35km south of known lithium mineralisation at the operation’s Manindi target where first-pass shallow reverse-circulation drilling encountered pegmatite hosted LCT mineralisation in April.
