The Project includes a 100% interest in approximately 9,000 hectares of mining claims, plus an additional 5380.5 hectares under option, in the north end of the Salar de Antofalla.
The geological environment at the Salar de Antofalla is similar to other salars in the Puna region where lithium and potash are found. Reported grades from the salar include 350 mg/l lithium and 6,400mg/l potash (https://roskill.com/news/lithium-albemarle-expands... accessed 3/5/18).
These facts were used to help prioritize the acquisition of these properties. The reader is cautioned that that results from other companies are not necessarily indicative of expected Argentina Lithium’s results, as there has been insufficient exploration on the properties by Argentina Lithium.
Location & Infrastructure
The Salar de Antofalla is approximately 150 kilometres long and 5-7 kilometres wide, and is situated at 3,900 metres elevation. The salar is accessed by Provincial highway 43 and unpaved roads, with the small town of Antofalla approximately 50 kilometres to the south and the city of Salta approximately 500 kilometes away.
The Company has completed a geophysical survey and identified high-conductivity targets for drilling at the Project. For details and results, please refer to our News Releases and the most recent MDA.
