Tambourah Metals (ASX: TMB) has unveiled high-grade lithium anomalies in its first-pass rock chip sampling at the recently acquired E46/1380 licence in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. Initial examination of the licence, which contains the Russian Jack lithium project, has identified significantly elevated lithium, caesium and tantalum (LCT) values from an initial program comprising 41 samples. Executive chair Rita Brooks said the combination of elevated LCT and tin in rock samples, in addition to extensive historic soil geochemical lithium anomalies, confirms that the Haystack Well tenement is highly prospective for pegmatite-hosted LCT mineralisation.
Stockhead’s Sarah Hughan sits down with Tambourah Metals (ASX:TMB) executive chairperson Rita Brooks to close the books on 2023 and gain a sneak peek into what’s around the corner. Brooks says one major highlight included the announcement of an earn-in at Julimar North with global lithium producer SQM whose on the hunt for more pegmatites for lithium. “We also extended our portfolio with six new projects in the Pilbara,” she says.

Special Report: First assay results from Tambourah Metals’ RC program at the World’s Fair prospect, part of its namesake Pilbara project, have returned up to 8.6g/t gold. Earlier this month, TMB recorded the strongest mineralised intercept ever at the project; 5m at 6.1g/t gold from 69m (including 1m at 28g/t gold from 70-71m) at the Tambourah King prospect.
The merit of Tambourah Metals’ (ASX: TMB) exploration strategy for its Achilles nickel project has been recognised with the company being awarded an EIS grant for co-funded drilling by the Western Australian government. Tambourah’s application was one of 36 recipients selected for the recent EIS co-funded drilling grants. The company is planning to commence its drilling campaign at Achilles, which is located in the district scale nickel sulphide region of north-east Laverton, from December 2023.
Tambourah Metals (ASX: TMB) has completed a reverse circulation drilling program at its Shaw River lithium-tin-tantalum project in Western Australia. The program was designed to test pegmatite mineralisation within the project acreage as well as mapped pegmatites at the historic Shaw River tin mining area. It comprised 13 holes for a total of 1,260 metres and followed reconnaissance sampling and mapping at several locations which identified outcropping pegmatites.
Tambourah Metals (ASX: TMB) has completed the first drilling campaign in 125 years at the historic World’s Fair gold project in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. The company’s reverse circulation (RC) drilling program at World’s Fair commenced in late August within its large Tambourah gold project. The latest drilling program in the World’s Fair area was located 550 metres north of the Western Chief prospect, where there is no record of drilling being conducted since it was mined in 1898.

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.
