Lithium Chile Announces TEM Geophysical Program on Its Los Morros Property and an Update on Subscriptions for Its Recently Announced Private Placement
CALGARY, ALBERTA – TheNewswire - February 3, 2021 – Lithium Chile Inc. (“Lithium Chile” or the “Company”) (TSXV:LITH) (OTC:LTMCF) is pleased to announce that it has contracted Geoxploraciones SA Chile to run a 17 km transient electromagnetic (“TEM”) survey on its 100% owned Los Morros lithium bearing property. TEM has been shown to be a valuable tool in identifying highly conductive subterranean brine aquifers. Lithium Chile’s prior TEM surveys have proven highly accurate in defining the principal brine aquifers on both of the Company’s previously drilled Ollague and Turi properties
SALAR de LOS MORROS PROPERTY HIGHLIGHTS:
- 17 sq km covering 30% of the south sector of the salar; - Brine samples taken by Lithium Chile from historic bore holes returned lithium grades up to 700mg/l; - Historic drill hole logs describe the conductive zone as loose gravel and sands containing brine beginning at 50 to 75 meters below surface; - Historic down hole geophysical surveys indicate 100+ meter thick conductive anomaly underlying the whole property.
The TEM survey is intended to identify locations for 3 additional exploration holes which the Company will seek permits for immediately after evaluation of the TEM survey. The absence of Indigenous surface claims on the Salar de Los Morros property is expected to expedite the permitting process.
The Company has received expressions of interest for the full amount of the recently announced (February 2, 2021) $3,500,000 private placement of Units (the “Private Placement”). The Company is pleased to have received such a positive reception to the proposed financing. Although Lithium Chile’s treasury has recently strengthened as a result of numerous warrant exercises, the proceeds from the proposed financing will substantially improve Lithium Chile’s financial flexibility going forward.
Mr. Terence Walker, M.Sc., P.Geo., qualified person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release. Individual brine samples were collected from the old bore holes by Lithium Chile staff using a double valve bailer system, placed in sterile 250 ml vials that were sealed and tagged on site. All samples were shipped to ALS Patagonia Laboratories, Santiago, Chile, where they were prepared and subsequently shipped to ALS’s Vancouver, Canada laboratory where the brine analysis was performed.
