Orosur Mining Inc., the minerals explorer and developer operating in Colombia, Argentina and Brazil, has announced that as a continuation of its strategy of securing high quality mineral exploration opportunities in key jurisdictions, it has signed a joint venture agreement to survey a number of exploration licences across Nigeria which would be highly prospective for lithium mineralisation.
Orosur has been examining an entry into the lithium space to add to its portfolio of exploration assets but had found few South American opportunities.
Nigeria, however, is rapidly emerging as one of the most prospective regions of Africa for the discovery of lithium pegmatite mineralisation, and as such is now seeing a very high level of interest and activity. Orosur’s executive team has operating experience and high-level relationships in Nigeria, and the company has been leveraging these factors over the last 12 months to gain substantial land positions in Nigeria’s prime lithium pegmatite districts.
A team of experienced geologists is in place, with all necessary equipment and logistical support, so that field programmes will be commencing immediately. Work will start initially with preliminary reconnaissance, and it is expected that results and additional work can advance quickly.
Orosur CEO Brad George commented: “Orosur has been examining entry into the lithium space for several years, but as with our other projects, we have pursued an early stage, low entry cost strategy, based upon detailed geological understanding of the local mineralising systems. Nigeria is clearly on a different continent, but with the extensive Nigerian experience of myself and our Chairman Louis Castro, together with our partner’s excellent local team, we are entirely confident in our ability to develop this exciting opportunity in Nigeria in harmony with our equally exciting South American assets which we will continue to progress as planned.”
