AU Hannans Reward eyes Sweden lithium deposits for exploration
The company announced that it had lodged seven applications for exploration permits over an historic mine and tenure prospective for pegmatite-hosted lithium mineralisation in the Skellefteå-Boliden district. The first exploration permit application covers Sweden’s most well-known lithium occurrence, the Varuträsk pegmatite, which was mined between 1936 and 1946 through opencut and underground mining. The site is known to host lithium and cesium minerals and also has occurrences of niobium minerals. Drilling by Swedish Geological in the 1980s identified a new pegmatite lens, north of the previously mined pegmatite. Hannans stated that the full potential of the original pegmatite and the additional lens had not been determined and, as such, it believed Varuträsk warranted further exploration.
