Beyond Lithium Corp. recently announced the results of grab sample testing at two spodumene pegmatites located at its Victory Placer Lithium Project. Grab sampling is a method used to quickly assess the presence of a mineralization and its grade in a particular area. Multi-element analysis was performed on both samples to determine the chemical composition of the samples, as well as to identify the presence of lithium and other rare earth ions.
The Last Resort Pegmatite sample returned a lithium concentration of 5.11% Li2O, as well as trace amounts of other rare earth ions such as cesium, rubidium, and yttrium. The description of the sample was a “white-banded spodumene pegmatite”. The Bounty Gold Pegmatite returned a concentration of 3.48% Li2O, with trace amounts of other rare earth ions such as beryllium, bromine, and niobium, and is described as a “black-banded spodumene pegmatite”.
The results of the grab sample testing are encouraging and reinforce the potential of the spodumene pegmatites located at Victory Placer Lithium Project. Beyond Lithium is continuing its exploration efforts at the project and conducting further evaluation of the spodumene pegmatites to determine tonnage and head grade potential of the resource. The company is confident that its proposed exploration program will be successful in determining the overall size and grade of the resource, and will provide a valuable information regarding the company’s ability to develop the Victory Placer Lithium Project.
The Victory Placer Lithium Project, located in Nevada, has been highly sought-after by many companies in recent years due to its potential for the development of lithium resources from spodumene pegmatites. The project is unique in that it has the potential to produce high quality lithium-bearing pegmatite material. This material could be used in the production of lithium batteries, catalysts and other applications. Beyond Lithium’s evaluation of the resource holds great promise for potential development in this rapidly growing sector.
The project has the additional benefit of being positioned close to existing lithium processing facilities located in the US. This allows Beyond Lithium to leverage existing infrastructure and resources to potentially offer convenient and cost-effective production of lithium-bearing materials from the Victory Placer Lithium Project.
Overall, Beyond Lithium has presented encouraging results from its grab sample testing at the Victory Placer Lithium Project, and the company is poised to move forward in its exploration efforts at the project. With the potential of high quality lithium-bearing resources along with the benefit of existing infrastructure and resources, Beyond Lithium’s evaluation of the Victory Placer Lithium Project could be a boon to the industry.
