Twelve drill hole locations have been selected to test all three geophysical highly conductive zones an anomalous geochemical target and geological structures. The drilling program will be approximately 4,250 meters (14,000 ft). Some of the holes are placed near to interpreted structures to test both the structural setting of the basin as well as the potential existence of aquifers that may contain lithium. The Company plans to drill in late April, 2019.
Drill holes 1 and 2 will test geophysical Zone One which is 6 km square and likely more than 100 meters thick;
Drill holes 3,4, and 8 will test geophysical Zone Two that is more than 24 kilometers square and less than 100 meters thick:
Drill holes 5 and 6 will test Zone Two’s southerly extensions;
Drill holes 7, 7A and 10 will test both geophysical Zones Two and Three. Zone Three may be more than 200 meters thick and is greater than 30 square kilometers, being open ended to both the north and south; and
Drill holes 9 and 11 are sited to test the 150 square kilometer geochemical anomaly that is external to the geophysical survey footprint.
The Phase Three drilling program includes permitting, site preparation, and drilling to determine the existence of aquifers. If found, the aquifers will be tested for thickness, permeability, porosity, initial flow rates, sustainable flow rates, sampling, and analysis for lithium and other minerals.
