A geochemical survey at Venus Metals’ Youanmi lithium project has backed up previous drilling, with the company hoping recently delineated lithium anomalies are an extension of the Manindi lithium discovery to the south that excited the market last month. Interestingly, the extensions appear to coincide with existing and known pegmatite outcrops.

The Youanmi lithium project is focusing on the Manindi North target in tenement E57/983 in WA’s Murchison where Venus and a former partner drilled with encouraging results in 2018, intersecting 12 metres at 0.68 per cent lithium oxide, 2m going 1.58 per cent lithium oxide and 4m grading 0.76 per cent lithium oxide.

Venus and Rox Notes Big Lift to Youanmi Resource

Perth-based explorer Venus Metals Corporation has confirmed that regional soil surveys in the Mangaroon North project area in Western Australia’s Gascoyne region have identified a series of rare earth, gold and platinum group elements (PGE) targets.

An initial geochemical reconnaissance survey outlined multiple target areas for follow-up in an area which abuts Dreadnought Resources' Mangaroon tenure.

The results showed total rare earth oxide (TREO) concentrations of up to 1,611 parts per million and anomalous neodymium (316ppm) in an ironstone specimen, indicating potential for rare earth mineralisation northwest of the Yangibana rare earth elements carbonatite field, owned by Hastings Technology Metals.

Venus Metals Corporation has uncovered anomalous rare earth, gold and palladium mineralisation at its Mangaroon North project abutting Dreadnought’s prospective nickel-copper-PGE rich tenure in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia. Initial geochemical reconnaissance surveying has outlined multiple target areas that Venus is planning to extensively explore through geochemical sampling, geophysical surveying and drill testing during 2022.

Perth-based Venus Metals’ Henderson project north of Menzies in WA could turn out to be a triple header with the company recently completing a hard-rock lithium sampling and mapping program at the gold and nickel site. A suite of 97 rock samples were bagged during the renaissance trip which sought to review the lithium potential of the company’s landholdings with assays currently pending.

The area looks to be developing into a hub for battery mineral exploration with Red Dirt Metals having just uncovered a fresh suite of spodumene-bearing lithium pegmatites at its Mt Ida project, around 10 kilometres from Venus’ tenure.

Venus Metals Corporation has begun sampling and mapping to review the lithium potential within its Henderson gold-nickel project in Western Australia’s eastern goldfields following Red Dirt Metals' recent discoveries at its neighbouring project.

Last month, Red Dirt revealed it had identified substantial lithium intersections in historic drill core from its Mt Ida tenement which abuts Venus’ Henderson project to the north.

Notable results from the review were 24m at 1.84% lithium and 350 parts per million tantalum from 160m; 26.2m at 1.84% lithium and 210ppm tantalum from 283m; and 12m at 1.7% lithium and 200ppm tantalum from 150m.
