Earlier this month, FEL entered an exclusive option agreement to acquire up to a 75% interest in 19 gold, copper and lithium tenements located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

The Macarthur tenement package provides FEL with access to highly prospective ground in a world-class lithium, gold and base metals province near to tier one infrastructure.

Early indications suggest one of the tenement package’s leading lithium prospects is the Tambourah Project, located 80 kilometres from Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX:PLS) and Altura Mining Ltd (ASX:AJM).

Site visits and sampling conducted by Macarthur identified several targets for further exploration with several occurrences of observed pegmatite in outcrop.

$2 million placement

FEL is undertaking a placement to raise up to $2 million and has already received an initial $338,500 in applications.
