Pilgangoora Data

Pilgangoora Information

  • Exploration 2015-05-27
    GAMW completed extensive programs of Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling on EL45/2232 between 2008 and 2012, as well as broader-spaced drilling over the 3.2km strike length of the main pegmatite field on EL45/2232. This enabled Pilbara to complete a maiden JORC Mineral Resource estimate and updated Exploration Target for the Pilgangoora Project, which was announced to the market on 17 June 2014.
  • Pilgangoora History 2015-05-27
    Mining of four small hard rock tantalum prospects has been undertaken in the area around Pilgangoora, with recorded production taking place from 1947 to 1978. Tantalum production from Pilgangoora (Hickman 1983) was obtained from alluvial and colluvial placer deposits. However, ore grades were quite variable as mineralogy ranged from good-grade manganotantalite to manganocolumbite (Miles 1945 et al). Concentrate production at Pilgangoora up to 1977 is recorded at 33.31t of tantalite and 13.1t of tantalite%u2013columbite (Featherstone 2004).
  • General 2015-05-10
    Pilgangoora gold prospect comprises a small - 58 ha Prospecting Licence occurring in the West Pilbara. The Pilgangoora Project is located approximately 80km south south-east of Port Hedland and contains mafic and ultramafic units, adjacent to and along strike of the Lynas Find deposit. The small tenement straddles north-northeast trending Archaean mafic stratigraphy and occurs on the western limb of the Pilgangoora Synclinorium. Small historic gold production from the area warrants further examination by detailed geological mapping and geochemical sampling, and possibly RC drilling.

    Lithium developer Pilbara Minerals has seen a 136% increase in its total proved and probable ore reserve for its 100%-owned Pilgangoora lithium/tantalum project in Western Australia’s Pilbara region to 69.8-million tonnes, grading 1.26% lithium oxide (Li2O). This more-than-double upgrade was compared with the maiden ore reserve of 29.5-million tonnes, grading 1.3% Li2O, used to underpin the March prefeasibility study, following an expanded resources programme.
