Itinga and Padre Paraiso Prospects
About Itinga and Padre Paraiso
Four exploration permits are located in the mining-friendly state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. One of the most significant strengths of these tenements is their strategic positioning within the renowned 'Eastern Brazilian Pegmatite District,' a globally acknowledged epicenter for hard-rock lithium spodumene deposits. Notably, this region represents the entirety of officially recognized lithium reserves in Brazil, thus greatly enhancing its appeal due to the abundant presence of spodumene-bearing pegmatites.
The Itinga and Padre Paraiso tenements are strategically positioned within the Eastern Brazilian Pegmatite Province, closely intertwined with the geological history of the Neoproterozoic Araçuaí orogeny. These regions are characterized by a geological landscape predominantly comprised of Neoproterozoic fertile S-types granites and meta-sedimentary rocks, all situated within the confines of the Araçuaí Orogen.
These pegmatites originate from the separation of magmatic fluids from peraluminous S-type granitoids during collisional events, a process intricately tied to the geological evolution of the Araçuaí Orogen. This exceptional geological context offers substantial potential for the occurrence of lithium-bearing pegmatites.
