Noram Ventures Inc. is to start surface and sub-surface sampling on its 2709 ha Arizaro East mineral claim located in the Eastern portion of the Salar de Arizaro in Northwestern Argentina.
The focus of the surface and sub surface sampling will be in the area of Arizaro East claim located in Salar de Arizaro. Sampling will be conducted by means of shallow wells of 1 m depth with composite samples, homogeneously fractioned concerning the extracted total. The extracted samples will be sent to the SGS laboratory for chemical analysis for lithium detection, results of the samples are expected in 1Q18.
The company has developed a surface and sub-surface plan for a Phase 1 exploration programme on the 2709 ha. as a function of the currently approved Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) that enables basic geophysical and geotechnical exploration of shallow depth. Noram is organising its exploration team and has started logistic preparations for the sampling.
“We are very pleased to have closed on 100% of the acquisition of a land position in Argentina, which will diversify and compliment our existing asset mix of lithium and graphite properties,” said Noram’s President, Mark Ireton. “Our focus is not only on finding and developing lithium and graphite deposits, but also on sourcing and supporting new, environmentally-friendly, processing techniques to produce lithium and graphite from our properties.”
