St George Mining Limited – discovering a major prize within a new lithium Province.

15 November 2022 11:01

In this episode with St George Mining Limited , we have John Prineas telling us all about the lithium discovery within their Mt Alexander project. I recently had a few conversations about lithium and I feel that the investing market has not realised that the lithium exploration timeline has just started.

The lithium euphoria has only been happening for the last two years. The discovery has been all the easy pickings and more commentary is now in the public domain about the discovery of pegmatites that are basically under cover.

Like all the previous commodity boom, the strong demand vs. supply equation will carry the rest of the lithium sector further. My view of the sector is that the demand for lithium will definitely outstrip what the work can provide, literally. The mining of lithium will never catch up with the need for the metal. There is no doubt about this statement.

St George Mining is now on the verge of joining the ranks of all the potential players out there with one pointed advantage. It is just 10km and along strike (within the potential mineralisation trend) of the Mt Ida Lithium project which is owned by Red Dirt Metals Limited (ASX: RDT).

In this episode, viewers should take note of the potential of the current drilling program. There have been rock chip results showing mineralisation but the drilling results will be the conclusive point.

“The width mapped on the surface and the rock chip assays should give some indication of the potential. It does not take a genius to realise that there will be pegmatite drilled and there will be number.

“Where the results will take the project is the unknown. I would start asking the company some serious questions and keep an eye on announcements from the company.”

Watch this conversation and make a decision to do some serious DYOR.

About St George Mining Limited (ASX:SGQ)

St George Mining Limited is a mining exploration company focused on creating shareholder value through the discovery of world class deposits.

At its flagship Mt Alexander Project in Western Australia, St George boasts Australia’s latest nickel-copper sulphide discovery. High-grade nickel-copper-sulphide-PGE mineralisation occurs from just 30m below surface and over a 4.5km strike of the Cathedrals Belt.

The discovery continues to grow with ongoing definition drilling delivering further significant intersections of high-grade mineralisation including:

MAD71 (Stricklands Prospect):

17.45m @ 3.01%Ni, 1.31%Cu, 0.13%Co and 1.68g/t total PGEs from 37.45m including the massive sulphide zones of: 5.3m @ 4.39%Ni, 1.45%Cu, 0.21%Co and 2.09g/t total PGEs from 39.3m;

2.02m @ 5.05%Ni, 2.01%Cu, 0.21%Co and 3.31g/t total PGEs from 50.6m; and

0.5m @ 3.68%Ni, 3.9%Cu, 0.17%Co and 2.68g/t total PGEs from 54.4m.

MAD56 (Cathedrals Prospect):

7.5m @ 3.90%Ni, 1.74%Cu, 0.12%Co and 3.32g/t total PGEs from 57.8m

Including 3.15m @ 6.36%Ni, 2.92%Cu, 0.20%Co and 5.03g/t total PGEs from 61.81m

MAD60 (Investigators Prospect):

5.3m @ 4.95%Ni, 2.75%Cu, 0.16%Co and 4.55g/t total PGEs from 157.9m

Including 3m @ 6.40%Ni, 3.55%Cu, 0.21%Co and 5.25g/t total PGEs from 159.38m

This major discovery comes at a time when the electric vehicle (EV) revolution and trend to alternative energy storage systems is gaining momentum. Demand for nickel sulphide – a critical battery metal – is forecast to surge with an upswing in the nickel price already underway.

Preliminary metallurgical tests of the massive sulphides at Mt Alexander produced concentrate with 18% nickel and 32% copper with high values for cobalt and PGEs.

The excellent exploration results at Mt Alexander build confidence in the resource potential at the Project and support Mt Alexander emerging as a major new nickel sulphide camp in Western Australia.

Our other projects – the Paterson and Broadview Projects – are located in exploration hotspots in Western Australia and provide additional value for the Company.

Drill core from MAD177 (photo below) which returned assays of:

10.5m @ 4.82% Ni, 1.67% Cu, 0.15% Co and 2.87 g/t total PGEs from 182.5m,

Including 4m @ 7.53% Ni, 2.47% Cu, 0.23% Co and 3.92 g/t total PGEs from 186m.
