DY6 Stakes Highly Prospective Lithium Ground

DY6 Metals Ltd (ASX: DY6, “DY6” or “Company”), a strategic metals explorer targeting Heavy Rare Earths (HREE) and Niobium (Nb) in southern Malawi, is pleased to announce that it has submitted four (4) exclusive prospecting licence applications totalling 746.7km2 in northern Malawi for tenements it considers to be highly prospective for lithium.


HIGHLIGHTS

  • Exclusive prospecting licences – considered highly prospective for lithium - applied for in northern Malawi, covering a total area of 746.7km2
  • Multiple pegmatite swarms identified from recent field visits with the potential to host lithium mineralisation
    • Pegmatites were traced for up to 500m in length, with varying widths between 5m to 25m+
  • Rock chip samples from recent reconnaissance field visit at the Mzimba licence areas have been despatched for laboratory analysis
  • Additional landholding complements the Company’s existing critical metals portfolio

The licence areas under application are “Mzimba” (West, Central and South) and “Karonga”. The recent applications will expand the Company’s overall strategic footprint in Malawi to a total 1,080 km2. Full details of the licences are annexed to this announcement.

The Company’s geological team recently undertook a reconnaissance field visit over parts of the licence application areas. Seven (7) random reconnaissance rock chip samples from the Mzimba license areas have been submitted for laboratory analysis in South Africa.

The Company’s CEO, Mr Lloyd Kaiser said: “We are very excited about these four strategic lithium license applications in northern Malawi. Field reconnaissance has identified several pegmatite systems, which are currently being worked by artisanal miners for a range of minerals, including the gemstones tourmaline and beryl, and lithium micas. While the Company waits for license granting, the focus of the exploration team will be on undertaking a detailed geological and geophysical review of these three new licence areas over the coming months.”

Mzimba Lithium Project

Located in the Mzimba district of central Malawi about 200km north of the capital Lilongwe, (refer Figure 1A) the Mzimba Project covers an area of approximately 710.5km2 extending through three separate tenements namely: Mzimba West, Mzimba Central and Mzimba South (Figures 1B, 1C and 1D).

A desktop study identified two areas for field inspection by DY6 staff and a field reconnaissance program was conducted over parts of the tenement area during November 2023. The first area is 65km north of Mzimba Township covering portion of the Traditional Authority Mtwalo, Chindi and part of Inkosi Paramount Chief M’belwa.

According to unpublished reports, regional geological mapping and reconnaissance surveys were conducted in the area by British Geological Survey in the 1980’s and the Malawian Geological Survey Department. The results indicated that Mzimba district has potential for a range of gemstones (such as aquamarine, tourmaline, beryl, and ruby) and industrial minerals occurring in pegmatites (Gaskell, 1973).

Rare Earth Elements Prices 101 (Updated 2024)

From electric vehicles and wind turbines to water treatment and nuclear power, rare earth elements (REE) are critical for many of the technologies necessary for a cleaner, greener economy and world. However, understanding pricing for these commodities can be tricky.

There are 17 rare earth minerals in all, and each is classified under different groups — typically light rare earths and heavy rare earths. Prices are available for multiple individual and mixed products, including for the rare earths used in permanent rare earth magnets, so it can all seem a bit overwhelming.

“The supply chain for rare earth materials and permanent magnets is complex, regionally concentrated and marked by a lack of transparent pricing,” according to international price reporting agency Fastmarkets. “This can lead to unpredictable costs, budgeting difficulties and supply insecurity. Geopolitical tensions further add to this uncertainty.”
