Pan Asia Metals, a specialty metal explorer and developer focused on projects in South East Asia, recently intersected pegmatite dyke swarms within the Reung Kiet Lithium Project in southern Thailand. Exploration results showed promising levels of lithium hosted in lepidolite-rich pegmatites chiefly composed of quartz, albite, lepidolite, among others.
Located near Phuket City, Reung Kiet is Pan Asia Metals’s flagship lithium project. The Reung Kiet Lithium Project includes three prospecting licenses that stretch across more than 12 kilometers of strike, covering much of the historic Reung Kiet tin field, taking in more than 15 artisanal and small-scale mines. According to Pan Asia Metals managing director Paul Lock, this project is close to all required processing inputs and end markets.
In addition to the Reung Kiet Lithium Project, the company has three other core ongoing projects, including:
- The Khao Soon Tungsten Project – SEASnW Belt, Southern Thailand
- Bang Now Lithium Project – SEASnW Belt, Southern Thailand
- Minter Tungsten Project – Lachlan Fold Belt, New South Wales, Australia.
Established in 2017, Pan Asia Metals’ current portfolio offers the opportunity to manufacture Lithium Carbonate (Li2CO3), Lithium Carbonate (Li2CO3), Ammonium Para-tungstate (APT), and Ferro Tungsten (FeW).
