Tambourah Metals (ASX: TMB) has wasted no time in identifying the potential for a number of minerals critical to the global clean energy race. The company has already identified lithium potential in pegmatite swarms and registered elevated tin in samples taken from dumps located at the Shaw River lithium-tin-tantalum project in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. Tambourah only recently purchased Shaw River and several other lithium exploration projects from Minrex Resources (ASX: MRR) in July and the company is moving quickly to gain a better understanding of an area known to host significant multi-element mineral riches.
Tambourah Metals (ASX: TMB) has commenced drilling at its flagship Tambourah gold project in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. The reverse circulation campaign will comprise 20 holes for a total 2000 metres and will test for extensions to gold mineralisation at more than 30 historic prospects. First-pass targets have been identified following an electromagnetic Loupe survey at the highly-prospective Worlds Fair discovery, which is located 550m north of the Western Chief prospect.
Tambourah Metals (ASX: TMB) chairperson Rita Brooks joins Small Caps to discuss the company’s recent successful capital raising, upcoming drilling plans for its suite of Western Australian mineral assets and the appointment of a highly experienced new director.

Those funds, along with the estimated injection of a further $1.2 million from a share purchase plan, will be used to accelerate activity at its critical and precious metals projects. A major focus will be the company’s plans to undertake drill programs in the rich Pilbara region, including the promising Tambourah gold and lithium project. The funds will also assist in advancing Tambourah’s strategic partnership with Chile powerhouse SQM in the exciting Julimar district north of Perth.Bringing a wealth of experience to those projects will be new director Wayne Richards. A 37 year industry veteran, his appointment has strengthened and enhanced the technical and corporate experience of the Tambourah board and management team.
