The Salt Wells Project consists of two projects; Salt Wells North and Salt Wells South. The Projects are located in Churchill County, Nevada, USA and are within short proximity to major highways and within 25 kilometres of the town of Fallon that has a population of over 8,500 people.
The Projects lie in what is believed to be an internally drained, fault bounded basin that appears similar to Clayton Valley, Nevada, where lithium is currently produced by Albemarle Corporation; the only current production source of lithium in the USA.
The basin covers an area of around 110 square kilometres. Borates were produced from surface salts in the 1800’s from the Salt Wells North site. With the exception of recent surface salt sampling from the Salt Wells North project, no modern exploration has been completed. The Projects are prospective for borates and lithium in the sediments (salt horizon) and lithium and boron brines within the structures of the basin.
