Enertopia Corporation controls 100% of approximately 1,760 acres of Lode Claims in the Big Smoky Valley, Nevada
The Company acquired a land position by staking 88 lode mining claims (the MS claims). The land package covers 1,760 acres of ground in the Big Smoky Valley of Nevada.
Areas of the project have Li claystone outcrops were primarily light greenish exposures of claystone with other areas of surface volcaniclastic deposits. Large areas of the project are under Desert pediment cover that is currently estimated at a few feet to 10’s of feet.
Enertopia Also Holds the Claims to all 1,760 Acres Free and Clear of any Royalties
The Company has 88 lode claims covering approximately 1,760 acres staked with the respective payments being made to the County and BLM for the year ending August 31, 2022.
Located just 4 miles west of Tonopah the claim has both Hwy 95 and power lines crossing the project, greatly reducing the need for additional infrastructure.
The perimeter of the claim, which is located in the Smoky Valley of western Nevada, is within 1.5 miles of American Lithium Corporation’s initial measured resource of 3.35 million tonnes of LCE (Lithium Carbonate Equivalent) at a cutoff grade of 400 ppm lithium.
The best surface samples to date returned 570 and 620 ppm Lithium at or near surface. The outcrop with the 570 ppm Li was followed up with man-portable drill hole DH1 and returned 750 ppm Li over 12 feet from 2 feet to 14 feet, with the last 4 feet averaging 860 ppm with the hole ending in lithium mineralization.
A second hole drilled 3,600 feet south returned 583 ppm Li over 14 feet from surface to 14 feet. The top 4 feet returned 730 ppm Li. The lithium mineralization is open in all directions and will require follow up drilling in 2022.
