Update on our August 13, 2018 press release:
With the closing of today’s financing tranche, final preparation for submittal to the BLM of the Companies NOI (Notice of Intent) to drill can be submitted. The focus of the drill program is multi-faceted. Firstly, it is to confirm that the tenor and grade of mineralization that is adjacent to our property to the West is similar on our project. The information gained will then be incorporated into our first NI 43-101 Resource report.
Secondly, the Company will undertake systematic and through solution testing of the drilled lithium enriched horizons. This will enable the Company to map the subsurface horizons as per oxide and reduced horizons and further differentiate the grade of Lithium in solution that can be potentially recovered in a low CAPEX and low-cost extraction methods.
Thirdly, the Company continues to move forward with respect to recovering lithium from its synthetic brine solutions.
We look forward to providing detailed updates as testing and drilling results are received over the coming months.” Stated President and CEO Robert McAllister
