Argentina Lithium & Energy Corp. (TSXV: LIT) has received positive lithium brine values at its Rincon West Project in Salta Province, Argentina, including a 153m interval ranging from 329mg/l to 393 mg/l lithium from the sixth diamond drill hole.
The seventh exploration hole is in final steps to completion, with two additional holes planned.
“The new drilling results extend the zone of concentrated lithium brines towards the west and southwest from earlier drill intersections,” VP of Exploration, Miles Rideout, said.
“The remarkable interval from the sixth hole, RW-DDH-006, is our best interval to date, and it is a step-out of 960m from the prior best intersection reported previously in the fourth hole. With RW-DDH-005, we drilled 1.7km southwest of the sixth hole, looking for the western limit of the brine zone.
“These large step-outs demonstrate concentrated lithium brines extend broadly through the core of the property. The remaining three drill holes will be located to further delineate the brine aquifer.”
The Rincon West Project, located west and north of Rio Tinto’s adjacent Rincon Project, covers 3742.8 hectares of the salar basin. Rincon West is currently permitted for up to nine exploration drill holes.
