Allkem (ASX:AKE) and NickelSearch (ASX:NIS) are set to start lithium exploration at Carlingup, WA next month.
NickelSearch’s re-rating in September followed a partnership with Allkem to evaluate Carlingup’s lithium potential. The site is approximately 10km from the 140,000tpa Mt Cattlin lithium mine.
Allkem recently hinted at latent capacity at Mt Cattlin to potentially process third-party product, which could benefit NickelSearch if Carlingup’s lithium potential is confirmed.
In April, an independent geochemical review identified Carlingup’s lithium potential. Four target areas within NIS tenure were identified on private land northwest and southwest of a quarry site.
Newexco geologists, in collaboration with NIS field staff and Allkem geologists, will undertake a mapping and sampling program of the four priority target areas and the quarry’s immediate surrounds next month.
NickelSearch has confirmed high-grade lithium within spodumene-bearing pegmatites at the quarry. Each target area has an interpreted strike length of over 800m.
The company has secured a new access permit from the WA Mining Warden to re-enter the quarry and these priority target areas.
The company’s accelerated exploration plans are supported by firm commitments to raise $1.2m at $0.045 per share.
Negotiations for consent and compensation to these areas will continue and require finalisation before an exploration program involving ground disturbance can commence.
Meanwhile, regional lithium exploration continues with rock chip sampling, stream sediment sampling, and additional soil sampling across the Carlingup tenements.
