Far Resources has announced undiscovered tantalum potential of the Zoro Lithium property in the Snow Lake area is being undertaken. This decision is based on a review of its assay data base of 310 drill core samples, 87 rock chip samples and the interpretation of Mobile Metal Ions soil geochemical data.
President Keith Anderson states elevated tantalum on the property including their assay of .113 percent tantalum underscores the potential for significant tantalum mineralization in association with their lithium bearing Zoro pegmatites. He says they have dispatched two prospecting teams to Snow Lake to continue exploration in the areas where pegmatite related multi-element anomalies including tantalum and lithium have been documented.
Tantalum is used in the electronic industry for capacitors and high powered resistors as well as in dental and surgical instruments and implants as it causes no immune response.
