⛏️ Kula Gold Limited is pleased to report reconnaissance field mapping and sampling on a lithium and tantalum bearing pegmatite at its 100% owned Marvel Loch-Airfield Project, approximately 90km north of the hard rock Mt Holland Lithium Mine in Western Australia.

Kula’s Chief Executive Officer Ric Dawson said:

“This new target in the Marvel Loch-Airfield Project with a LCT suite mineralisation focus, opens up a whole new area of interest for the Company.”

  • Rock chip sampling at Marvel Loch E77/2806 has resulted in anomalous Lithium and Tantalum results.
  • Up to 59.8ppm and 40.2ppm Lithium (Li) and 55.5ppm Tantalum (Ta), along a magnetic structure of up to 4km.

Recent reconnaissance mapping and rock chipping has detected anomalous readings of 59.8ppm and 40.2ppm lithium and reading of 55.5ppm tantalum which is significantly above background of approximately 1-5ppm (Table 1). As seen in Figure 2 and 3, a strong magnetic structure is adjacent to the anomalous rock chips.

A follow-up field mapping and rock chipping programme is scheduled for the next quarter.
