Millie’s Reward (Lithium)

Millie’s Reward is a highly prospective conventional spodumene hosted Li2O deposit located in Madagascar. Field work has identified outcropping pegmatite dykes with significant spodumene mineralisation and grades recorded from rock chip sampling of up to 6.9% Li2O over significant strike lengths.

Preliminary geological mapping has demonstrated a majority of the pegmatite dykes in the area as having sub-horizontal to horizontal orientations over significant strike lengths. A majority of the pegmatitic dykes and sills within the mining permits are over 10 meters in thickness, with swells in areas of up to 50m in thickness, while being up to several hundred metres in length. Most of the large dykes have been subject to very little modern geological assessment, as all the mining activity performed in the past occurred at an artisanal scale, operated by the local miners working for gemstones.
