A remarkable mineral exploration breakthrough was recently made in Brunswick, Canada. The exploration team identified a dyke swarm containing significant spodumene mineralization. Spodumene is a lithium-rich mineral that is in high demand for its use in rechargeable battery technologies and other clean energy solutions. With the recent surge of interest in renewable energy, spodumene is increasingly sought after and could be a major breakthrough in the world of energy storage. Operated by the British Mining Group, the project called Mirage was carried out in the small mining district of Brunswick. The group deployed an airborne geophysical survey to detect anomalies in the long-established region that could indicate an area of mineralization. The survey was successful and the team was able to identify an interesting aero-magnetic anomaly that had never before been discovered. Consecutive geological mapping on site combined with several sampling tests confirmed that this feature was indeed a dyke swarm containing spodumene mineralization. The results of the sampling tests were promising, indicating that the spodumene mineralization found at the Mirage site was of a high enough concentration to be extracted and mined. The British Mining Group is now hopeful that the new find represents a potential jump-start in unlocking the Brunswick River valley’s unutilised mineral potential. The group is currently awaiting elevated drill results to confirm the concentration level of the spodumene and determine if it is capable of being commercially mined. These findings are certainly a promising discovery and may well open up opportunities for a cleaner energy future. It is yet to be seen whether the Mirage project will confirm its initial results, however the seismically active region around Brunswick could be set for a long-term spodumene boom.
