Lithium anomalies double to reach more than 50 sqkm at Kingsland's WA play

Kingsland Minerals Ltd (ASX: KNG) has seen a lithium anomaly picked up at its Lake Johnston project in Western Australia grow to double its size based on soil sampling work.

The anomaly – which stretches 13 kilometres north to south and four kilometres east to west – carries grades of 100 parts per million (ppm) lithium oxide (Li₂O).

Within this, there is an even sweeter section carrying grades of up to 200 ppm Li₂O across an area three kilometres long and 400 metres wide.

Kingsland Minerals managing director, Richard Maddocks said the sampling work had boosted expectations for the company’s imminent drilling work.

“These additional soil sampling results highlight the excellent lithium potential on our extensive tenement holding at Lake Johnston,” he said.

“We now have drilling approvals in place to test these anomalies in the coming months.

“Once our recent tenement applications are granted, exploration will extend along strike to the north and south to fully test the lithium potential of this project.”

The Lake Johnston project comprises more than 770 square kilometres along the Lake Johnston Greenstone Belt, which is prospective for lithium-bearing pegmatites.

Kingsland is trading at 26c.
