Taylor Lookout Lithium

The Taylor Lookout Project is located approximately 80 km southwest of Halls Creek in the Kimberley region, Western Australia.

In February 2022, Eastern Lithium Pty Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eastern Resources, entered into a Heads of Agreement to acquire a up to 85% beneficial interest in the Lithium Rights of the Project.

Numerous base metal and skarn related tin-tungsten occurrences occur within the Tenement. Tin (cassiterite). Tantalum was first discovered in Columbian Creek and in source pegmatites in 1927. Cassiterite was mined in Columbium Creek, which is 0.5km to 2km west of the Tenement. Pegmatites have been mapped but no records on the mineralogy of the pegmatites are available however the presence of the minerals tantalum within heavy mineral concentrates is a strong indication of increased fractionation in some of the pegmatites.

Pegmatites are common in the Taylors lookout area, proximal to fertile granite plutons. The presence of tantalum in the creeks draining these areas indicates that potential exists for fractionated pegmatites potentially hosting lithium minerals. No exploration has been undertaken on pegmatites or for lithium on the Tenement.
