Bang Now
Lithium Project

The Bang Now Lithium Project shows potential for lithium mineralisation to be present in metasediment in contact with pegmatite dykes.

The Bang Now Lithium Project is located in Chumporn Province, approximately 480km WSW of Bangkok and 140km North of the Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

Bang Now consists of two Exploration Prospecting Licences that cover approximately 5km².

Within the project area Pan Asia has located historic mining activities with abundant tailings containing gravel to boulder sized lepidolite bearing pegmatite as well as quartz and meta-sediments. Pegmatite is visible in several old mine faces and has been sampled where possible.

The project is located in the prospective Ranong Fault Zone and captures the full extent of large scale historic alluvial-eluvial tin mining in the district.

Work by Pan Asia has shown:

  • From 24 rock chip samples 20 returned Li2O grades of between 0.5% and 3.38%, with an average of 1.75% Li2O;
  • A potential target area of 2km x 400m that may host an extensive lepidolite rich pegmatite dyke swarm; and
  • Potential for lithium mineralisation to be present in metasediment in contact with pegmatite dykes.

Pan Asia’s objective is to identify potential lithium rich pegmatites with the dimensions and grades that would justify drilling. Additional sampling and mapping are required to determine potential drill targets.
