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 estimated at a few feet to 70 feet based on our June 2022 drilling program results.
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, 2023.
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.
10 Shallow drill holes with depths of 120 feet to 200 feet from our June 2022 drilling program confirmed the widespread nature of the Li claystone at the WT project.
Interpretation of the drilling results indicated two separate blocks of claystone has been intersected. With all holes ending in Li bearing claystone. Hole DH22-10 which intersected the higher-grade Li bearing claystone horizon ended in the best bottom hole intercept of 1,045 ppm Li at a depth of 170 feet.
The lithium mineralization is open in all directions and will require follow up drilling. And planning is underway for our 2023 drilling program that would lead to a follow up 43-101 resource report.
