Corvette Far East
The Corvette Far East Project is located directly along trend from the exciting recent lithium discoveries made by Patriot Battery Metals (ASX: PMT) at its Corvette Project.
The Project is located just 20km east of the Corvette Project within the same greenstone belt, where historic large-scale mapped pegmatites remain unexplored, and is prospective for lithium over 15km of strike (see Figure 1).
Geologically, the greenstone within the Corvette Far East Project is interpreted to be a ‘dismembered’ section of the exact same greenstone belt that hosts Patriot Metals’ CV5 discovery where recent outstanding drill intercepts of up to 159m at 1.6% Li2O have been announced (see Patriot Battery Metals’ announcement dated 31/08/22).
Both greenstone belts occur at the contact between the intrusive tonalite to the south and granodiorite to the north (Figure 1), both of which may be the source granites for the unusually large lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatites in the area.
This geological interpretation strongly supports the prospectivity of the Project for further lithium discoveries.
