Geophysical Survey Defines New Targets – West Spargoville Lithium Project

Marquee Resources Limited (“Marquee” or “Company”) (ASX:MQR) and its Joint Venture partner Mineral Resources Limited (ASX:MIN) (MQR 75% / MIN 25%) are pleased to announce the completion of a high resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric survey at the Company’s West Spargoville Lithium Project (E15/1743), located 28km south of Mineral Resources Mount Marion Lithium Mine in Western Australia. The 2,325 line-km magnetic and radiometric survey has provided excellent quality, high resolution geophysical images that provide detailed exploration information within the Project area.

  • High resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric survey completed over the West Spargoville Project (WSP).
  • Survey results highlight correlation between magnetic low anomaly patterns and mapped pegmatites.
  • Multiple areas identified with anomalous magnetic low features identified, indicating potential for buried pegmatites.
  • The Company aims to recommence drilling in Q1 2024 at WSP to test the magnetic low features, interpreted as large, buried pegmatites.

Marquee Executive Chairman, Mr Charles Thomas, commented:

“The addition of this magnetic and radiometric data, along with our extensive geochemistry and drilling database, has given us a powerful set of targeting tools for the next phase of exploration at the WSP Project. In conjunction with Mineral Resources geologists and geophysicists, we have generated numerous additional targets at the Project which we plan to drill as soon as possible.”

“The magnetic low features are compelling targets highlighting additional areas at the WSP Project that are yet to be field mapped and gives the team and Marquee and Mineral Resources multiple targets for further drill testing. The technical team is eager to be return to the field and begin the next phase of boots-on-ground exploration.”

Airborne Magnetic & Radiometric Survey

A high resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric survey has been completed on the West Spargoville Lithium Project. The 2,325 line-km survey was conducted using 50m spaced flight lines orientated E-W, and a sensor height of 35m. The survey was designed to gain detailed structural and lithological information to assist in interpreting the controls on the location of LCT-pegmatites at depth. Radiometric data is also useful in highlighting potassium

(K) anomalies that may be associated with LCT-pegmatites. The data was processed by Southern Geoscience Consultants and has been interpreted by Marquee and Mineral Resources geologists.

The results from the survey are of excellent quality, producing high resolution images of magnetic and radiometric anomaly patterns throughout the project area. The magnetic high anomalies in the image represent the ultramafic units striking NNW through the Project, and near surface maghemite within drainage channels and dolerite dykes, while known pegmatites are correlated with magnetic low anomalies. The technical team has identified multiple new target areas, where clusters of magnetic low anomalies and associated radiometric anomalies could indicate further pegmatite bodies. These are new high priority targets for field reconnaissance and drill testing.

Next Steps

  • Finalise interpretation of target areas.
  • Field reconnaissance trip to map and sample additional targets.
  • Completion of Flora Survey.
  • Completion of Heritage Survey.
  • Recommencement of reverse-circulation drilling.

Groundwater Issues Derail Glencore's Queensland Carbon Capture Project

The Australian government has rejected Glencore’s (LSE:GLEN,OTC Pink:GLCNF) proposal to develop a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in Queensland due to potential risks to groundwater resources.

The decision halts the global commodities miner's plan to inject CO2 into underground aquifers to reduce emissions from a coal-fired power plant. The CO2 would have been stored 2.3 kilometers underground in the Surat Basin.

Glencore's pilot project, managed by its subsidiary, Carbon Transport and Storage Company, aimed to capture 330,000 metric tons of liquefied CO2 annually from the Millmerran power plant in Southern Queensland.

Altiplano Reports Assay Results From its Santa Beatriz Copper-Gold-Iron Project of up to 2.45 m at 3.65 %Cu; 0.29 g/t Au; and 26.97 %Fe

Altiplano Metals Inc. (TSXV: APN) (WKN: A2JNFG) ("Altiplano" or the "Company") is pleased to report on underground and surface channel sample results from the Santa Beatriz Copper-Gold-Iron Project. These sample results confirm high grade copper-gold mineralization in the Santa Beatriz vein complex. With this information, the Company will review the opportunity to develop Santa Beatriz for the potential to produce incremental Cu-Au-Fe mineralized material to support feed for the El Peñón mill plant. Currently, the mine has a 3,000 tonnemonth permit which can be increased to 5,000 tpm through application with the mining authorities. The Santa Beatriz Mine is located 2 kilometres (km) by road from the Company's existing operation at the Farellon Copper-Gold-Iron Mine and 13 kms from the El Peñón processing plant near La Serena, Chile. Santa Beatriz and Farellon are iron oxide copper-gold (IOCG) deposits located within the NNE-trending Chile's copper-rich IOCG belt that has been associated to the Atacama Fault zone.
