Jamieson Minerals Victorian Tenement Application



Minerals: Lithium, Caesium, Tantalum, Tin, Gold, Copper.
The discovery of spodumene-bearing pegmatite dikes in the Dorchap Range of northeastern Australia by Dart Mining NL has spurred exploration interest in the region, particularly followed the announcement of an earn-in agreement with SQM of Chile (DTM ASX release July 26, 2022).

Lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatites are associated with highly fractionated, reduced Silurian granites that are also often host to tin mineralization. The LCT pegmatites of the Dorchap Range are associated with the historical primary tin fields at Mitta Mitta and Mount Wills. Other historical primary tin production in northeastern Victoria occurred at Walwa, Burrowye and Mount Alfred. Historical alluvial tin fields occur in northeastern Victoria at Reedy Creek (Beechworth-Eldorado), Toora, Koetong and Mount Cudgewa. Other minor tin occurrences are also likely evident in regional stream sediment data.

The historical primary tin fields and, by extension, prospective LCT pegmatite areas, are found in Omeo Zone (Omeo Metamorphic Complex) as well as in the Tabberabbera Zone directly to the west. The belt of metamorphic rocks extends north into NSW as part of the central Lachlan Orogen, where it is referred to as the Wagga-Omeo Zone, and hosts tin occurrences at Ardlethan, Kikiora and Mount Tallebung.
