Macarthur Minerals Limited (TSXV:MMS) announced that it has applied for three additional exploration licences in the Pilbara and Ravensthorpe regions of Western Australia expanding its potential tenement area to 1,192 square kilometres. One of the two new Ravensthorpe applications has mapped pegmatites with potential to host lithium mineralization.
As quoted in the press release:

The Company now has one of the largest tenement portfolios for ‘hard rock’ lithium of any junior exploration company globally and is one of a few TSX-V listed companies to have potential projects for lithium in Australia. The expansion of the Company’s acreage package is consistent with the Company’s focus on exploration of raw materials for the production of lithium batteries.

Pilbara Minerals Limited recently announced that it has raised A$100 million to develop its Pilgangoora lithium-tantalum project.


New Ravensthorpe Tenement
