The claims contain six oil wells which are three kilometres north of wells with historically recorded lithium values and Anson’s recently drilled Cane Creek 32-1 well.
Anson’s managing director Bruce Richardson said: “This new area staked by Anson provides the opportunity to enter or re-enter six additional oil wells to sample for lithium at relatively low cost.
“In addition, the company will seek to work with the oil company that has been granted approval to drill new wells to obtain additional geological data and conduct lithium sampling as their program is conducted.
“It may also be possible to collect core samples through targeted Clastic horizons as these wells are drilled.”
The plan above shows the location of the new claims in relation to the project’s claims and their proximity to wells with historical lithium values.
The six historical oil wells on the new claims are possible re-entry targets for exploration.
In addition to lithium, high concentrations of bromine (Br), iodine (I) and magnesium (Mg) were assayed at a number of oil wells in the Long Canyon area.
