Rock Gallery

Situated within the Cornubian Batholith – Imerys British Lithium’s target forms an enriched zone of Lithium-Mica bearing granite.

Forming in the late Variscan Orogenic event, the granite is hosted within one of the six exposed plutons within Cornwall and Devon. This granite is the youngest observed in the South-West and has been intruded within older granites and country rock, known locally as Killas.

The Greenbarrow project is made up of several granitic units which have been displayed below. These are specimens that have been collected and analysed by the team and aid in the further development of the project and future exploration.
