Vancouver based Nevada Energy Metals Inc. has announced that a surface sampling program designed to test for lithium (Li) values in playa evaporates has returned significant geochemical results at the company’s 100% owned Black Rock Desert Project in Nevada.
Results ranged from 82.8 to 520 parts per million (ppm) lithium with a median value of 182 ppm. Twelve samples carried over 300 ppm Li.
The company plans to carry out additional exploration programs this fall to determine the potential for an economic lithium brine deposit. Future exploration will consist of shallow auger sampling followed by a high resolution geophysical program to define potential drill targets.
