Arrow Minerals Ltd (ASX:AMD) is compiling exploration collected from mid-2016 to identify new prospective targets at its Malinda Lithium-Tantalum- Project in Western Australia.

Using an array of exploration data, the company is now planning on completing a project-wide geophysical survey in the March quarter 2019.

The objective is to fingerprint the known mineralised intrusions and evaluate the remaining 580 square kilometres of the tenement package to identify additional mineralised pegmatite swarms for follow up geochemical sampling and mapping.

This program would consist of an airborne magnetic survey to better understand the structural controls on emplacement and overprint and a detailed hyperspectral survey.

2017 drilling confirmed mineralised outcropping pegmatites

Arrow commenced exploration in mid-2016 and followed up pre-drilling sampling work programs with a maiden reverse circulation (RC) drill program in September 2017.

Drilling intersected up to 2.0% lithium and over 800 ppm tantalum.

Since then, Arrow has carried out a drone survey, and additional rock chip sampling indicating a niobium-tantalum mineralised intrusion.
