The Ubini pegmatite field is located approximately 900m ENE of First Find. There are six historic workings on the pegmatite field, two of which, including the high-grade Amblygonite Mine, are located on GEEs tenements. There are several other locations proposed in the literature for Ubini. These may represent other lithium bearing pegmatite occurrences.
Field reconnaissance and mapping by GEE has identified several additional pegmatite occurrences on the tenement package which have not been analysed for lithium. There are also large areas of quartz and feldspar float in the Helens Find area which could in some cases represent the weathered surface expression of pegmatite bodies.
Lithium was first discovered at Ubini by tin prospectors in 1910. Amblygonite was mined and exported to Germany the same year. Since that time there has been very little exploration activity in the area targeting Lithium.
The co-funded drillhole FFD02 intersected broad zones of pegmatite in two zones from 497m to 506m and 640m to 763m. The core has not yet been cut and assayed for lithium. The end of the deepest intersection is approximately 705m at -46 towards 240 azimuth from the nearest pegmatite working at Ubini. It is unknown if these pegmatite occurrences are related at this stage.
