Lithium 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 at its 100%-held Pioneer Dome Project, near Norseman in Western Australia. Outcropping pegmatite-hosted lithium mineralisation identified in rock chip samples at the Pioneer Dome Project - confirms the presence of LCT pegmatites. Tenements cover 13 pegmatite clusters that have been identified over a 20 km strike length. 4,000 sample soil geochemistry program underway - to be completed in May 2016 with drilling likely in the September 2016 quarter.

  • 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.
