Mt Marion - Second lithium shipment
The second shipment of lithium concentrates from the Mt Marion Lithium Project (‘Mt Marion’) has departed from the Port of Kwinana.
The 16,662 tonne shipment containing concentrate at +6% and +4% Li2O was loaded onto the MV Babuza Wisdom which departed Kwinana on Tuesday 14th March enroute to Ganfeng’s receiving facility at Zhenjiang Port, China.
This shipment follows the maiden shipment of 15,000 tonnes which departed on 6 th February 2017, while the next shipment of approximately 18,000 tonnes of concentrate is expected to be loaded early April, on the MV Pacific Venus, which is returning to port after sailing with the maiden cargo.continue reading

Mt Marion Resource Upgrade
Snowden Mining Industry Consultants has reviewed results of recent drilling and provided a revised Mineral Resource estimate as at 21 October 2016 resulting in increases to Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resources now totalling 77.8Mt at 1.37% Li2O and 1.09% Fe; reported above a cut‐off grade of 0.5% Li2O.
The previous Mineral Resource estimate released on 5 July 2016 was 60.5Mt at 1.36% Li2O and 1.09% Fe; reported above a cut‐off grade of 0.3% Li2O.
The revised estimate represents an increase in contained Lithium content of 29.5% with a slightly increased cut‐off grade to align with pit optimisation parameters as applied by Snowden.continue reading

Exploration Drilling Update
Results to date have been positive with significant increases in the previously defined shallow, west dipping, spodumene‐bearing pegmatites at Area’s 1, 2, 2 West, 4, and 6.
At Area 2 West RC drilling further defined the bounds of the deep, sub vertical pegmatite ‘feeder’ previously reported in the March ASX Quarterly. This unit is a 40 to 80 metre (horizontal width) spodumene bearing pegmatite with a continuous vertical thickness up to 370 metres (e.g. MMRC0415: Pegmatite from 149‐519 metres), and a strike length of up to 350 metres (SSW‐NNE). The unit remains open at depth to the north.continue reading

160% increase in Mt Marion Resource Estimate
The results of the study have increased the Mineral Resource Estimate to Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resources of 60.5Mt at 1.36% Li2O and 1.09% Fe, at a cut-off grade of 0.3% Li2O (Table 1 and Appendix A), compared to 23.24Mt at 1.39% Li2O, at a cut-off grade of 0% Li2O previously. This represents a substantial increase in the size of the mineral resource, equating to a 160% increase in the total contained lithium at the Project.continue reading
