Ravensthorpe Lithium WA
Woomera has an established and expanding position in the Ravensthorpe Lithium Province, east-southeast of Perth in Western Australia.
The Company owns 100% of the Mt Cattlin Project, 6km north of Allkem’s Mt Cattlin lithium mine, and in August 2023 entered into a Farm-in and Joint Venture Agreement with Anax Metals to earn an initial interest in the Mt Short Project.
The 64km2 Mt Short tenement is 2km to the north of Woomera’s Mt Cattlin Project and 13km north of the Mt Cattlin mine.
At the Mt Cattlin Project, Woomera has defined strong lithium-in-soil anomalism that it intends to drill-test in late 2023.
Previous drilling at Mt Short focused on nickel, with numerous holes intersecting pegmatites, but no analysis was carried out for lithium.
Billiton Exploration intersected significant widths of pegmatites (up to 81.85m) in three diamond holes drilled on the licence in 1999, while Greenstone Resources logged pegmatites up to 33m in width in RAB drilling carried out in 2000.
Woomera plans to undertake soil sampling across the entire Mt Short tenement and RC drilling in the area where pegmatites were encountered previously.
