Auroch Minerals Limited (ASX:AOU) (Auroch or the Company) is pleased to announce it has confirmed lithium mineralisation in pegmatites at the Nepean Project in Western Australia (Auroch Minerals 80%).


  • Assay results received from regional sampling of pegmatite veins confirm lithium mineralisation with up to 1.05% Li
  • Follow-up investigations have commenced including re-assaying of samples from nearby RC holes for LCT mineralisation
  • Diamond drill rig to commence regional exploration programme at Nepean having completed the second Nepean Deeps drill-hole NPDD013 to a final depth of 754.45m
  • Assay results from NPDD013 are pending
Field investigations of mapped pegmatites in the northern portion of the project tenure was undertaken in November to assess the lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) potential of pegmatite units. Outcropping and sub-cropping pegmatites located to the north and east of the historic Lepidolite Hill and Londonderry Pegmatite mines (located on third party tenure) were given priority for the initial field investigation. Samples were collected from five locations (Figure 1) and included rock chips sourced from float, sub-crop and outcrop.
