Sayona kicks off drilling at 'highly prospective' Tabba Tabba

North American lithium producer Sayona Mining has initiated reverse circulation (RC) drilling at its Tabba Tabba project, in Western Australia, where previous air core drilling identified potential pegmatite systems.

A recently completed gravity survey has helped focus deeper RC drilling over two areas along a 7.5 km prospective corridor. The northern area is located immediately south of the historic Tabba Tabba tantalum mine, where recent exploration by Wildcat Resources has identified encouraging lithium mineralisation.

The initial 2 000-m-plus RC drilling programme consists of 14 holes, with nine located in the north area, immediately south of Wildcat’s tenements and a further five holes are located at the Roadside prospect, about 4.5 km further along strike.

“We are excited to have commenced RC drilling over the highly prospective Tabba Tabba lease, which has known lithium mineralisation in close proximity and along strike,” said MD and interim CEO James Brown.

Sayona has secured a cofounding grant for drilling at Tabba Tabba under Round 29 of the Western Australian government’s Exploration Incentive Scheme. The grant of up to A$180 000 will help fund innovative exploration drilling in the search for flat-lying spodumene pegmatite systems within the Tabba Tabba lease.
