USA, Nevada: Exploration for Lithium Near Geothermal Power Plant

Dajin Stakes 690 Placer Claims in Gabbs Valley (News Release)

Dajin Resources Corp. has staked 690 placer claims at Gabbs Valley, located north of the Don Campbell geothermal power plant, in Mineral county, Nevada. These placer claims cover 13,800 acres (5,600 hectares) in the lower-elevation western portion of Gabbs Valley where a playa (salar) with surface salt and mud flats occurs.

The Gabbs Valley playa is considered to be a viable prospect for subsurface lithium brines for the following reasons: (1) it is a deep, closed basin in a dry, desert environment, (2) geothermal activity is known to occur on all sides of the playa, including the south end where the operating Don Campbell geothermal power plant is located, and (3) potential lithium source rocks are found throughout much of the catchment basin.
