The Amber region shows all of the geological hallmarks associated with many of the world’s predominant lithium provinces.
Lithium exploration will initially concentrate at the historical recording of pegmatite and greisen hosted tin, tungsten, and fluorite occurrence.
Adrian Griffin, managing director, commented: ”Lithium Australia has identified North Queensland as a region with the optimum geological history to host major lithium deposits.
“Amber adds significantly to our Queensland portfolio and further strengthens our Australian exploration portfolio.
“Our advanced exploration techniques are proving invaluable in Mexico, where we are drilling at the moment, and we will be applying much of the knowledge gained, to our domestic exploration activities.”
