Lithium-Caesium-Tantalum Projects

Pioneer further expands lithium project portfolio & exposure to demand-driven commodities with current Lithium projects:

  • The Mavis Lithium Project in Ontario Canada, where twenty prospective pegmatites have been mapped to outcrop and sampling todate have returned encouraging Lithium results. Read more ⇨
  • Pioneer has discovered pegmatite-hosted lithium mineralisation in rock chip samples at its 100%-held Pioneer Dome Lithium-Caesium-Tantalum Project, near Norseman in Western Australia. At least 13 clusters of pegmatites, including LCT pegmatites, have been identified along a 20 km strike length. Approximately 7000 soil samples have been used to identify 9 priority and 15 mid-rank targets. Mapping and additional sampling required to generate drill targets. The inaugural 5000m RC programme at the end of 2016, identified both high grade Lithium and Caesium. The high grade Caesium prospect has been named Sinclair Zone, and the Company is currently drilling to test extensions of this zone, and a Mineral Resource Estimate is underway. Read more ⇨
  • Donnelly Lithium Project in the World Class Greenbushes Minerals field in south west Australia, only 12-60 km from the Greenbushes Lithium mine. Read more ⇨
  • Phillips River Lithium Project 100 km east of the Mt Caitlin Lithium Mine, Ravensthorpe WA, where previous explorer roadside sampling has indicated 2 standout lithium anomalies supported by modified pegmatite PEG-4 index values, and a number of other lithium anomalies which warrant further investigation.

Lithium has been classed as a ‘critical metal’ meaning it has a number of important uses across various parts of the modern, globalised economy including communication, electronic, digital, mobile and battery technologies; and transportation, particularly aerospace and automotive emissions reduction. Critical metals seem likely to play an important role in the nascent green economy, particularly solar and wind power; electric vehicle and rechargeable batteries; and energy-efficient lighting.

Pollucite is a rare mineral of caesium that forms only in extremely differentiated zones of rare-metal lithium-caesium-tantalum pegmatite systems. It is found in commercial quantities at the Tanco Mine in Canada and Bikita Mine in Zimbabwe, where it is mined principally for use in the manufacture of Caesium Formate, a high density fluid used in high temperature/high pressure oil and gas drilling. The principal Caesium Formate manufacturer and dealer is Cabot Corporation (NYSE: CBT), through its Cabot Speciality Fluids division. Caesium Formate provides a number of well documented benefits including, minimal damage to the hydrocarbon-bearing formation resulting in higher production rates, where it acts as a lubricant, is non-corrosive and is considered an environmentally-friendly benign chemical when compared to alternatives. Caesium in principal commercial usage is the non-radioactive isotope.
