Gravity geophysical survey indicates earlier discovered near surface lithium brine anomaly on west side of basinal low. Proximity to feature of this nature & presence of lithium in brines are criteria necessary for formation of Silver Peak style lithium brine deposit.
- 2,240 acres (907 ha) in Washoe County
- Extensive exploration programs 2009-2012
- Sediment & brine geochemical studies, gravity geophysics & two phases of direct push drilling
- Anomalous lithium values detected during brine sampling with the highest value of 80 mg/L
2,240 Acre (907 ha) San Emidio Project located 60 miles (100 km) northeast of Reno - home to Tesla's Gigafactory, increases the Company’s Nevada lithium brine portfolio to 20,790 acres (8413 ha).
Gravity survey defined basinal depression proximal to the San Emidio anomaly.
Direct push drilling confirmed lithium enrichment in brines
Outlined a lithium-in-brine anomaly ~0.6 miles (1 km) wide, and > 3 miles (5 km) long,
As the case at Clayton Valley, lithium concentrations in brines at San Emidio reasonably expected to increase at depth
