Bastion Minerals reported findings from initial mapping and analysis at its Morrissey Project.

The exploration, covering 15.58km2 in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia, included the sampling of 211 rock chips.

The comprehensive field program commenced in late April and focused on geological mapping and sampling of pegmatites and calcrete around drainages, particularly along the Gascoyne River branches.

The results indicated elevated uranium levels, peaking at 0.2% in calcrete, and high lithium concentrations in pegmatite samples, reaching up to 380ppm.

Rock chip samples were analysed at ALS laboratories using the ME-MS89L analytical method, confirming local uranium concentrations in calcrete and enriched lithium, rubidium, and caesium in pegmatites.
