Venus Metals Corporation has received a further boost to its war chest with battery metal focussed eMetals Ltd this week forking out $160,000 to complete the purchase of Venus’ Poona Lithium project in WA. The sale allows Venus to shift its focus to a range of new project areas in the fertile terranes surrounding the Youanmi mining region.
This payment closes the second deal between the two companies for 2020, with the eMetals having purchased the Nardoo project from Venus back in March.
Venus Metals Corporation Limited has completed the sale of its non-core Poona Lithium-Caesium-Tantalum (LCT) project in WA’s Murchison region to eMetals Ltd.
The Grace prospect has come up with the numbers again for Venus Metals and its managing JV partner Rox Resources at their Youanmi South project in the Goldfields, with new results over 30 gold gram metres clearly defining a high-grade mineralised zone that sits within a wider overall series of repeating gold bearing structures that plunge to the north.
Significantly, a new hole, 300 metres from the first discovery hole at Grace has hit 2 metres grading 18.96 grams per tonne gold from 48 metres at the end of hole - leaving the zone wide open at depth and to the north.
Venus Metals Corporation Limited has completed extensive exploration on its projects over the March quarter. At the Youanmi Gold Mine five separate pits occur over a two-kilometre strike length.
Venus Metals has lodged two interesting looking tenement applications on the south-western shore of Lake Ballard to be known as the Henderson gold-nickel project, located 50 kilometres northwest of Menzies in WA. The tenements fall within the Mt Ida greenstone belt, which is host to some significant projects including Mt Ida and Davyhurst, where gold’s renewed interest is breathing new life into those projects.
Venus Metals continues to zero in on the Penny South prospect at its Youanmi gold project. The company’s latest geophysical program has highlighted no less than five priority EM targets at the high-profile project which is located immediately along strike from Spectrum Metals’ famed Penny West gold deposit.
