Once again, the Australian share market turned good economic news into a bad share performance as the ASX 200 index slumped to a three-month low of just 7042.3 points. Hot US jobs figures from ADP Research found that employers added 497,000 jobs in June – nearly double what was expected – driving most traders to conclude that the US Federal Reserve is now almost a certainty to raise official interest rates on 26 July. Simultaneous falls for bonds and shares brought back bad memories from last year with the growing consensus being that there is a lot more work to do to slow down the US economy and that interest rates will go higher and stay that way for longer than expected to get inflation under control.
Tambourah Metals (ASX: TMB) has entered into an agreement with leading Chilean lithium producer Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile S.A. (SQM) (NYSE: SQM) to jointly explore for new lithium targets in Western Australia.

Tambourah Metals (ASX: TMB) chairperson Rita Brooks joins Small Caps to discuss the company’s recent acquisition of six lithium prospective projects in Western Australia’s Pilbara region and earn-in agreement with Chilean lithium producer SQM. Tambourah has Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile SA (SQM), allowing SQM to initially earn a 50% stake, and potentially up to a 70% interest, in six of Tambourah's Julimar Nth projects in Western Australia. SQM will secure these stakes by independently funding between $1.5m and $3m on exploration and development activities. In addition, the addition of the 337 square kilometres of granted exploration licences from Minrex Resources makes Tambourah one of the largest lithium exploration tenement holders in the high-profile Pilbara, host of two operating, Tier 1 lithium mines. Several of the projects adjoin current Tambourah Pilbara projects, including Tambourah North and the Haystack Well Project. The company is planning to quickly advance its new Pilbara lithium assets which are providing additional scale and quality and is already active on the ground there.
