Paradox Basin Lithium Project
A Unique Lithium Project in an Excellent Jurisdiction
Anson’s flagship project is its Paradox Basin Brine Project in Utah, USA for which Anson is developing an industrial scale in-field pilot plant to produce lithium carbonate for supply to lithium ion battery cathode manufacturers for product qualification testing. Using innovative direct lithium extraction technology and conventional flow sheets for all other processing, Anson will extract lithium from brine rapidly to produce high purity products. No evaporation ponds are required in the process, saving massively on CAPEX, OPEX, space, and processing time. Anson is advancing the recovery and refinement of other chemicals to produce additional high value products from iodine, bromine and boron also contained in the brine. The recovery and processing of these chemicals would provide multiple revenue streams for Anson.
Yellow Cat Vanadium-Uranium Project
Anson owns 396 lode claims in the Yellow Cat Mining District in Utah, USA. Assays from the 3,307 hectare area show grades of up to 13.1% vanadium, or 23.4% vanadium pentoxide. Anson discovered the opportunity after developing an extensive network of contacts in the mining industry in Utah for the Paradox Basin Brine Project, which remains Anson’s main focus for development work. Anson is planning an exploration program to measure the extent of the ore body in the future, given the extremely high assay results for V2O5. Production of uranium-vanadium ore in the district from 1935-1954 totaled 42,000 short tons that averaged 0.3% U3O8 and 1.8% V2O5. Below is a table showing the results of the assays.
Ajana Graphite Project
The Ajana Project is located in Northampton, Western Australia, a proven and established mining province for zinc, lead, silver and graphite. The project is situated within the prospective historic mining center of Ajana. The tenements, E66/89 and E66/94, and E66/100 (under application) are located 130kms north of Geraldton and on the North West Coastal Highway.
Hooley Wells Nickel-Cobalt Laterite Project
The Hooley Wells Nickel-Cobalt Laterite Project is located 800km north of Perth and 300km east of Geraldton in Western Australia. The granted tenements, E9/2218 and E9/2219, contain historical shallow drilling which has intersected nickel and cobalt laterites. Associated with these laterites are high grade chromium values.
