The Salar del Diablo is one of the largest known salars, or salt flats, to be drilled in 2019.
The program will test three geophysical zones covering more than 54 square kilometers, a large geochemical anomaly that covers 150 square kilometers, and geological structures that may trap and concentrate brines.
The exploration company, which is focused on lithium in brine projects, currently has a 60% property interest with an option to acquire a further 30% property interest for a total of a 90% working interest in the 75,400-hectare Salar del Diablo lithium brine project, which is located in the State of California Baja Norte, Mexico.
The company said two zones are open-ended and in addition to this, geological analysis confirms many active faults and linears as well as cross structures throughout the basin. These features suggest that structural conditions may exist to concentrate brines, according to the firm.
The Salar del Diablo property has never been drilled in the past and is it is estimated to take between 25 and 50 days to complete.
