Askari scours data to pinpoint Namibian pegmatite prospects

A comprehensive analysis study by Askari Metals has identified seven new lithium pegmatite targets at the company’s Uis project in Namibia, with a detailed mapping and rock sampling campaign already underway.

Management says its recently-discovered K10 pegmatite has an interpreted strike length of 3.1km, the GP target has an estimated length of 2.4km and its Tawny prospect extends for 2.2km.

Additional targets include the Eve and MW pegmatites, with respective strike lengths of 1.7km and 900m, on the same tenements as K10 and GP, while the Martial and Zebedeus prospects, with strike lengths of 1.7km and 1.4km, respectively, are within the same exploration licence as Tawny.


The current exploration campaign has been designed to develop the new targets for a trenching program, which will be a first for the licence area around the Tawny prospect and a second-phase trenching campaign for the tenements that surround the K10 and GP pegmatites. Askari has also commissioned its pellet press and laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) machine on-site at Uis to ensure a faster turnaround time on samples from its upcoming exploration campaign.
