Labyrinth To Ramp Up Gold, Lithium And Nickel Exploration At Comet Vale, WA

Labyrinth Resources Limited (ASX: LRL) (‘Labyrinth’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to advise that it is stepping up a “back-to-basics” exploration program at its Comet Vale gold project in WA (‘the Project’).

The preliminary field work will follow up historical data which revealed the presence of pegmatites and indicators of lithium prospectivity and follow on from preliminary work done by Labyrinth (see LRL ASX announcement dated 15 December 2022). Nickel, copper and gold occurrences across the package are well documented, but the full potential has not been tested.

As an exploration geoscientist, Chief Executive Officer, Jennifer Neild has seen the benefit of compiling for the Project:

  • non-digital drilling data
  • geophysical surveys
  • structural mapping and
  • soil/rock chip sampling.

The methodology recently completed at Comet Vale has already highlighted several gold, nickel, copper and cobalt anomalies that needed boots on ground confirmation and have not been previously looked at by the Company.

The review established that very limited drilling has been conducted below 50m and that the project area has been exposed to virtually no modern exploration techniques.

The open pit and underground Resources at Comet Vale stand at 39,477oz at 3.3g/t and 56,233oz at 7.0g/t respectively (see LRL ASX announcement dated 11 April 2023).

Labyrinth Chief Executive Jennifer Neild said: “There are numerous significant historical workings along well-established gold trends which extend for several kilometres. But these workings remain very poorly tested below surface which is likely the result of having too much choice.

"Of particular interest is the “Rambo Trend”, which comprises a number of gold occurrences and is represented by a 2.3 km gravity anomaly. This anomalous trend runs parallel to the Sovereign Trend which hosts the existing resource. At the southern end exists a substantial Ni/Cr anomaly supported by Ni intercepts.

While we’re still very excited about exploration at our Labyrinth Project in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, there is unprecedented value to unlock locally as hunting season begins in Quebec, Canada where we have limited regional exploration access but are busy compiling data to a similar standard.”

Ms Neild said the Comet Vale ground was also highly prospective for nickel sulphides, REEs and LCT pegmatites, with almost no work done to explore for these commodities.

To the north, Ardea Resources (ASX:ARL) has focused on EIS holes on its Highway nickel sulphide drilling (see ARL ASX release 21 August 2023). The same target stratigraphy exists at Comet Vale where elevated Ni, Co and Cu are common. Ardea also commissioned a CSA study which showed LCT prospectivity to the north and south of Comet Vale.

In light of this immense potential, Labyrinth has started a program of reconnaissance field work to validate historic occurrences and confirm targets. Key outcomes include:

  • Mapping geology including veins of pegmatitic material and locating historic references to dykes at gold prospects
  • Structural mapping, confirming fault orientations and timing relationships with gold bearing veins
  • Confirming Ni/Cr trends which help identify nickel sulphide prospectivity
  • Confirmation of historic drillholes not currently in database
  • Environmental monitoring and rehabilitation work
  • Delineating prospects of highest potential for future work

Basin Uranium Announces Submission of Permit at South Pass

Basin Uranium CORP. (CSE: NCLR) (CNSX: NCLR.CN) ("Basin Uranium" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has submitted a permit application to the Bureau of Land Management, Department of the Interior for exploration drilling at the South Pass Uranium Project (the "Project" or "South Pass") located in Fremont and Sublette County, Wyoming, USA. The Project, which was acquired through direct staking by the Company, is comprised of 151 unpatented mineral lode claims totaling 3,020 acres located along the perimeter of the Great Divide Basin of Wyoming (see Figure 1). Wyoming is home to both the largest uranium reserves and top producing state in US1, with the Great Divide Basin representing the least exploited of Wyoming's basins estimated to contain over 270 million pounds of uranium2.

The Company has engaged RESPEC Consulting Inc. ("RESPEC") as a strategic technical and operational partner for the permitting and has submitted a Plan of Operation ("PoO") for up to 47 drill pads and 30,000 feet of drilling. The drill program is designed to both confirm the and extend the uranium mineralization delineated from the extensive exploration history of the project. Due to standardization of permitting for uranium exploration in Wyoming, the Company anticipates the receipt of all requisite permits in Q3 2024.

"The simultaneous permitting for multiple projects provides us with the flexibility to rapidly advance exploration on multiple fronts concurrently," commented Mike Blady, CEO of Basin Uranium. "Our partnership with RESPEC allows us to leverage their extensive experience in permitting, exploration and development of uranium assets throughout the USA."

South Pass Project, Wyoming

The South Pass Uranium Project is comprised of 3,020 acres of contiguous claims (151 unpatented mineral lode claims) located 45 miles southwest of Lander, Wyoming. Access to the property is facilitated through State Highway 28, located within 5 miles to the southeast, with year-round gravel and ATV roads servicing the claims. Exploration dates back to the 1960's and 1970's with several large companies having drilled numerous wells along a 12-mile-long trend that bisects the long axis of the property. Specifically, close-spaced drilling by Rocky Mountain Energy Corp. (a subsidiary of Union Pacific Railway) in the 1980's reported uranium mineralization at depths of over 400 feet - depths which would be potentially amenable to in-situ recovery (ISR) methods. Evaluation of historical records also indicated a historic resource was calculated on at least two parts of the claims currently comprising the South Pass project, however additional verification and validation must be performed by the Company's Qualified Person before being disclosed publicly.

The reader is cautioned that at this time it is too early to assess the feasibility of these recovery methods at South Pass however mineralization at this depth typically lies within the parameters of ISR mining and recovery.
