Shallow Drill Geotechnical Testing Underway
Clean lithium developer Lake Resources NL (ASX:LKE) reports that project development activities are being ramped up and include shallow drill testing at the Kachi Lithium Brine Project, Argentina.
A geotechnical study of the site where the Direct Lithium Extraction Pilot Plant / Demonstration Plant will be located is underway following COVID-19 protocols.
The study will be conducted by local qualified consultants from Catamarca and data will feed into the Definitive Feasibility Study. Shallow drill testing will commence shortly as part of this study With interpreted
Drill contracts for both geotechnical and water drilling are being finalised for mobilisation to site.
A geophysical programme that has been underway for nearly two months is almost complete and will assist in the positioning of brine test holes.
Managing Director Steve Promnitz said the Company is well financed and these activities, while important, are not major expenditure items.
Mr Promnitzsaid updates on other activities with samples in the USA will be provided soon and the company confirms that the program with Hazen is ongoing and advancing to plan and timelines. The focus is to produce and deliver bulk samples of similar quality and purity to Novonix for further testing and analysis for third parties.
