  1. One of the larger salars in the world to be tested with 12 drill holes in January/ February, 2019. The lithium industry and investment community are watching.
  2. A large property covering 75,400 hectares or 290 square miles.
  3. All 83 geochemical samples over 80 kilometers assayed for lithium with an average grade of 78 parts per million lithium and being surface samples these grades are considered anomalous.
  4. The volcanic source rocks as well as hot springs on or near the property also contain significant lithium values.
  5. The primary geochemical target covers 150 square kilometers.
  6. Initial geological analysis indicates extensive and active structural environment is present throughout the survey area.
  7. Geophysical survey results identified 3 large conductive zones, which cover more than 54 square kilometers and may indicate the presence of brines.
  8. Zone one may be more than 300 feet thick and zone three may be more than 600 feet thick.
  9. The salar may be as much as 8,000 feet deep and could contain lithium-bearing aquifers (potential pay zones) that are stacked at depth.
  10. The Salar del Diablo located 35 km from San Felipe that is a regional service center which will reduce the exploration and development cost.

Salar del Diablo Lithium Property


The Salar del Diablo is a 75,400 hectare (754 square kilometers or 290 square miles) property that covers a large closed basin. The Property is located in the State of Baja California Norte, Mexico.

Approximately 20% of the property has been evaluated by geochemical sampling, geophysical surveys, and satellite imagery structural analysis. A time domain electromagnetic survey consisted of 80 line kilometers composed of 7 lines situated two kilometers apart, which covers 150 square kilometers.

Geophysical Program
Results To Date


  • The geophysical survey delineated three major conductive zones that could be indicative of brine, which cover over 54 square kilometers. Two of the three zones extend beyond the limits of the geophysical survey and are therefore open ended.
  • The geophysical Interpretation report defined three large and highly conductive zones. Independent contractor, SJ Geophysics, conducted a Volterra TEM in loop survey located within the northern part of the property. The survey covered approximately 150 square kilometer, which constitutes about 20% of the Salar del Diablo claim block.
  • Syd Visser, President of SJ Geophysics Ltd. wrote “The survey’s objective was to delineate changes in conductivity that could represent conductive layers. The Salar del Diablo was considerably more conductive than expected. As in other salars in North and South America that are in production or advanced exploration, the conductive layers could represent saline brines, which may contain elevated concentrations of lithium."

The conductive zones identified by SJ Geophysics are:

Zone Two: Light Blue


  • Surrounds Zone One;
  • Is less than 100 meters thick;
  • Is also very conductive with reading of 2 ohm.m which is an average of a low of 1.5 ohm.m and a high of 5 ohm.m;
  • Is covering 24 square kilometers, which includes Zone One in the center; and
  • Is open ended to both the north and south beyond the survey grid.

Zone Three: Light Pink


  • Is a continuously conductive layer located beneath a resistive layer;
  • Is both east and west of Zone Two. Interpretation suggests the west side has likely been down faulted and may be originally related to Zones One and Two;
  • Is located at 300 meters deep at the south end and shallows to 200 meters as the overlying sediments decrease in thickness;
  • Is estimated to be 200 meters thick;
  • Is continuously conductive with ohm.m varying between 5 and 10 ohms; and
  • Is open ended to both the north and south off the grid.

Geochemical Program
Results To Date


  • Over a distance of 80 kilometers, 24 geochemical surface samples have all contained lithium with an average grade of 74 parts per million (ppm) lithium. Within the area of the geophysical survey, 59 samples have an average grade of 86 parts per million lithium, which defines a 150 square kilometer lithium anomaly. The samples also assayed as high as 1.9% potassium, an average grade of 400 ppm boron, as high as 10,000 ppm cesium, and a low average grade of 1.3% magnesium; and
  • Samples taken from thermal waters contain 48 ppm lithium and may suggest that underlying faults are capable of transporting lithium in water.

Geological Results To Date


A geological map has not been completed. However, evaluation of satellite data, geophysical data, known tufa mounds and outcrops indicate significant intra basin structures exist that include faults in bedrock outcrop outside the basin that trend into the Salar.

There are north-south active faults and linears that are likely cross faulting throughout the basin and adjacent bedrock outcrops.

There are two evident features:

1.) the geophysical zone 1 appears to be constrained at the north and south ends of the survey area by a significant increase in cross faulting; and

2.) the cross faulting appears to dominate the east side of the basin and bedrock complex. These features suggest that conditions may exist to concentrate brines.


All five prerequisite geological conditions as described by the U.S. Geological Survey for a successful lithium/ brine deposit are present:

  • 1. a closed basin
  • 2. presence of hot springs
  • 3. volcanic rocks enriched with lithium
  • 4. active faults that may allow for transport of lithium into the salar basin
  • 5. within a region of high heat flow.

Drilling Program


Twelve (12) drill hole locations have been selected to test all three geophysical anomalous zones as well as two geochemical targets, which will require approximately 4,050 meters of reverse circulation drilling. 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 January, 2019.

Drill holes 1 and 2 will test geophysical zone 1 which is 6 km square and more than 100 meters thick;

Drill holes 3,4, and 8 will test geophysical zone 2 that is more than 24 kilometers square and less than 100 meters thick:

Drill holes 5 and 6 to test zone 2’s southerly extensions;

Drill holes 7, 7A and 10 will test both geophysical zones 2 and 3. Zone 3 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 geochemical anomaly that is external to the geophysical survey footprint.

The drilling program includes permitting, site preparation, drilling and testing to discover potential aquifers, and then determine the aquifers thickness, permeability, porosity, initial flow rates, sustainable flow rates, sampling, and assaying for lithium and other minerals.

Most holes will be placed near interpreted structures both geophysical and geological to test the structural setting of the basin.


Future Programs


Additional programs may include a gravity survey to establish basin configuration and to confirm the basin's 8,000 foot depth, time domain electromagnetic surveys to close the open ended conductive zones 2 and 3; a second pre drilling program to evaluate the remaining 80% of the Property, including the southern third of the property, and a pre-feasibility study if warranted.


Salar del Diablo Property Interests


One World Lithium Inc has funded phase one and phase two pre drilling programs and, now own an undivided 60% working interest in the Property.

On completing the phase three 4,200 meter drilling program, and payments and share issuances to Energy Metals Discovery Group the Company will have then earned an additional 20% working interest for a total of an 80% working interest.

On receipt of a Bankable Feasibility Report, the Company has a onetime election to purchase an additional 10% working interest based on a Bankable Feasibility Report’s present value using an 8% discount rate for a total of a 90% working interest.
