Government has granted Walkabout Resources a second Lithium exploration prospecting licence EPL6308, in the highly prospective and under-explored Orange River Pegmatite Belt.
“The team has been working very hard at securing these premium unexplored licences with 27 kilometres of known pegmatite swarms running through them.
Our intention is to assemble a dominant holding for lithium prospectivity within Namibia and with these licences now underpinning such a program, this can quickly be realised,” said Trevor Benson, Walkabout Executive Chairman.
The 1,500sq.km of highly lithium prospective tenure in Southern Namibia has known historic lithium occurrences.
In addition, the discovery boost of pegmatite swarms delineated with a combined strike of 27 line km and Lithium-Caesium-Tantalum (LCT) type pegmatites with grades > 1.6% Li2O reported from rock samples by other explorers in the region.
The brownfields mining area has legacy production from old tantalite and spodumene mines nearby.
