Project Overview

Pioneer Dome

Pioneer Dome Project is a highly prospective, multi-commodity project located approximately 130 km south of Kalgoorlie and 200 km north of the port of Esperance. 

The Project targets the 20 km strike length of the eastern periphery of the Pioneer Dome. The Project was recognised as having potential for lithium mineralisation following a review of historic exploration reports which recorded numerous pegmatite intersections in nickel or gold‐focused drilling completed since the 1960s.

Access to the project is excellent with the Goldfields Highway and Esperance railway, and water and gas pipelines passing through the Project. The Project covers an area of approximately 389 km².

Pioneer Dome Lithium Project

The Company has identified over 20 pegmatites. While a number are recognised as not prospective, others have clear ‘LCT’ pegmatite affinities, including the Sinclair Pegmatite (pollucite, petalite, lepidolite, K-feldspar), the Cade and Heller pegmatites (spodumene) and PEG009 (lepidolite).

In June 2019, spodumene was discovered outcropping in the northern area of the Pioneer Dome Project and this location is now known as the Dome North Lithium Project.

Following a series of successful drill campaigns, a JORC Mineral Resource Estimate of 11.2Kt @1.16% Li₂O (comprised of 8,600Kt at 1.23% Li₂O Indicated and 2,600kt at 0.92% Li₂O Inferred) has been declared. The Pioneer Dome MRE is reported at a 0.3% Li₂O cut-off grade.

The Dome North Resource was previously released in ASX announcement “Dome North Mineral Resource Estimate Upgrade” issued 20 December 2022.
