Bulletin Resources (BNR) has confirmed a second trend of high-grade lithium pegmatite at its Ravensthorpe Lithium project in Western Australia.

The trend was confirmed to the west and parallel to the previously identified eastern pegmatite trend.

In the Western Pegmatite Trend, the company conducted a sampling program at the Horseshoe pegmatite.

The results gave up to 4.5% lithium oxide with an average of 3.1% lithium oxide, 0.8% rubidium and 0.16% cesium.

Additionally, known lepidolite zones at the Horseshoe pegmatite remain to be tested.

The company plans to advance exploration in both the western pegmatite corridor and the eastern pegmatite corridor.

“We now have a great opportunity to advance two lithium deposits just a few kilometers apart in this incredibly prospective area with an operating lithium processing plant just 12 kilometers away.”
