Abbotts North

Premier1 Lithium recently entered into an option agreement to acquire 100% of the Abbotts North project in Western Australia. This project is located in the Abbotts Greenstone Belt, a region not previously explored for its lithium. The Buttamiah Prospect has confirmed pegmatite occurrences yielding up to 1.25% Li2 O at surface.

The Buttamiah Prospect is located approximately 35km to the North of Meekatharra in the Murchison region of Western Australia. Several pegmatite dyke swarms can be found sub-cropping within a metabasalt unit belonging to the Abbotts Greenstone belt. The individual pegmatites are on average 2m to 3m wide and can be traced over up to 350m in strike. The main Buttamiah Prospect extends over ca. 1.5km.

The Abbotts Greenstone belt consists of a succession of mafic and ultramafic units as well as felsic volcanics and sediments. The sequence has been intruded by porphyries, pegmatites and granites. The margins of the belt are structurally complex and the belt is bounded by granites and monzogranites to the East, West and North.
