Reedy Lagoon Corporation Limited (ASX:RLC) has informed the market that drilling at its wholly owned Columbus Salt Marsh project is progressing as scheduled.
While difficult ground conditions were encountered during the first 150 metres, the drill has since passed 400 metres down hole and is nearing the highly conductive zone extending from 600 metres below surface (below).
RLC expects to intersect brines within the above zone and plans to drill to 1,000 metres.
The company has also indicated that it intersected a tuff unit between 151-167 metres downhole, smaller thin tuff units have been discovered above and below this wider zone.
The presence of volcanic ejecta has established the possibility of dissolvable lithium discovery within the project.
RLC’s programme will include hydrological testing to establish aquifer, brine composition analysis and brine extraction parameters.
Now, at the same time, it should be noted that this company represents a speculative investment and those considering this stock for their portfolio should seek professional financial advice before making a decision.
If results are favourable, the company may expand the diameter of the hole and convert it into a ‘monitoring well’. The well may be converted into a producing well subject to permit approvals.
In depth drilling results will be released by RLC once:
- Drill reaches target depth of 1,000 metres (estimate is 19 days until completion, excluding sampling and pump testing if done before completion)
- Sample and testing of selected aquifers – estimate two weeks
- Assays from core and brine samples expected four weeks from sample delivery
- Metallurgical studies on the brine samples will be considered if brine volumes, flow rates and compositions are sufficient for commercial development potential
About the Columbus Marsh project
The Columbus Salt Marsh project is located 45 kilometres northwest of North America’s only producing lithium brine operation at Silver Peak.
The Columbus Salt Marsh valley represents a close basin with extensive Tertiary volcanic deposits in the surrounding hills.
The valley is fault bounded and several geothermal springs discharge alkali salts onto the lake surface, where they have been mined for borax in the past.
