Agboville Lithium Project, Côte d’Ivoire

Agboville consists of three permit applications covering ~1,000km2 in total in southern Côte d’Ivoire. These applications have been made over areas of pegmatite fields and cover areas of intrusive granites, monzogranites, granodiorites and biotite granites. A distinct intrusive is evident in regional geophysics in the northeast of the permit areas, and lithium, tantalum, beryllium and other rare earth mineralisation was identified in government mapping the 1960s and ‘70s.

The permit application areas have never been subject to modern mineral exploration. Geophysics, mapping, rock chipping, soil geochemistry and trenching are planned to identify lithium host rocks analogous to lithium mineralisation discovered at the Ewoyaa lithium project in Ghana and the Goulamina lithium project in Mali.
