Galan Lithium Limited (ASX:GLN) has received further “outstanding” lithium assay results from recent sampling performed at its Pata Pila tenement in Argentina.
Managing Director, Juan Pablo Vargas de la Vega said these results confirm previous significant intercepts in drill data of high grade/low impurity lithium bearing brines from the Western Tenement project areas in September, October and December.
He said the results will also assist in the continued estimation of lithium brine resources at the Western Basin of the Hombre Muerto salar in Argentina.
The Pata Pila license covers large alluvial fan areas lying adjacent to Livent Corporation’s tenure, covering part of the western margin of the Hombre Muerto salar.
The next phase of test work will be to more accurately determine the flow rates from the aquifers.
“We are delighted with these results. Galan continues to show that its Hombre Muerto projects have potentially the right recipe for a commercial scale project, as well as being one of the highest-grade lithium brine projects in the world,” Mr de la Vega said.
Furthermore, we are encouraged by the confirmation of Pata Pila’s high grade and low impurities and the effect on a large section of high-grade brines, which could add significant inventory to the previously reported Candela’s resource of 685kt of LCE.”
