About the Project
Argentina Lithium has an option to earn a 100% interest in approximately 15,857 hectares of claims in eleven contiguous mining concessions located on the west side of the Pocitos Salar as well as an additional 10,364 hectares in three blocks to the east and south. It is approximately 38km from the Company’s Rincon West Project in Salta Province, Argentina.
The salar is well located proximal to other lithium-bearing salars and the project has seen limited exploration by previous operators, presenting an opportunity for new discoveries.
Location & Infrastructure
Situated at over 3,600 metres elevation, the present surface expression of the Pocitos Salar is approximately 425 square kilometres, being 57 kilometres north to south, and between 6 and 9 kilometres east to west.
Provincial Route 17 and the natural gas pipeline-fed industrial park at the settlement of Pocitos are located 17 kilometres to the east of the Project. The rail line that crosses the middle of the Pocitos property joins Salta with the port of Antofagasta on the Chilean Pacific coast. The InterAndes power corridor passes 35 kilometres to the north.
The property has seen modest lithium exploration in the past, including geophysics, surface sampling and limited drilling.
Argentina Lithium is undertaking additional detailed work to detect and delineate brine concentrations for testing. For details of the latest work program and results please refer to the News Releases and Presentations.
