Andromeda Metals reveals maiden kaolin resource for Hammerhead Deposit

Andromeda Metals Ltd (ASX:ADN) has revealed a maiden resource of 51.5 million tonnes of Bright White kaolinised granite for the Hammerhead Deposit, 5 kilometres to the north of the Great White Deposit on the Eyre Peninsula of South Australia.

Hammerhead is part of Andromedas Great White Kaolin Joint Venture with Minotaur Exploration Ltd (ASX:MEP) under which Andromeda is currently earning a 75% interest.

The maiden resource of 51.5 million tonnes of kaolinised granite is at an ISO brightness (R457) cut-off of 75 yielding 27.1 million tonnes of minus 45-micron quality kaolin product.

The resource includes a halloysite rich sub-domain with drilling undertaken in May 2020 determining that the resource remains open to the east, south and northwest.

Significantly, some areas within the Hammerhead Deposit show high levels of halloysite (>20%) that is similar to the existing resource reported at the Great White Kaolin Deposit.
