Flynn Gold has identified a large, high-priority lithium target at its wholly owned Lake Johnston lithium project in Western Australia.

The anomaly was uncovered from first-pass soil sampling completed in late 2023. The assay results from the sampling identified priority target 1, a large-scale lithium anomaly supported by geology and pathfinder element geochemistry.

Twenty-three of the samples gathered returned assay results over 100 parts per million (ppm) lithium oxide, with the anomaly remaining open to the south and covering lithologies considered favourable to host pegmatites. 

“We are very pleased to report outstanding assay results from our first soil program at Lake Johnston, which is rapidly emerging as WA’s newest lithium hotspot,” Flynn Gold managing director and chief executive officer Neil Marston said.

“Flynn has outlined a 4km-long strong lithium soil anomaly, along strike from the recent high-grade lithium discoveries at the nearby Burmeister, Jaegermeister and Mount Gordon prospects.

“This anomaly extends to the limit of the sampled area and has potential to be extended to the south by further sampling.”

Flynn Gold’s exploration licences at Lake Johnston were first granted in July 2023. During an initial reconnaissance field trip, three previously unmapped pegmatite outcrops were identified within exploration licence E63/2190.

The company’s latest lithium anomaly discovery follows Flynn Gold gaining the option to acquire two lithium exploration licences at Parker Dome last December. Parker Dome is located 50km north of the Mount Holland mine in the Forrestania-Southern Cross greenstone belt in WA.

“Over the last few months, Flynn has successfully outlined significant lithium soil anomalies at its Western Australian lithium projects,” Marston said.

“The company’s Lake Johnston and Parker Dome projects in the Yilgarn region and (the) Mount Dove project in the Pilbara are all well located near existing lithium deposits or operating mines.

“Flynn will now systematically advance these targets at Lake Johnston with value-adding, low-cost infill and extensional soil sampling and geological mapping.”
