BMG Resources to conduct further geophysical surveys at lithium brines project in Chile

The geophysics results will represent significant risk mitigation, confirming the potential presence of brine and enabling the identification of immediate drill targets.

BMG Resources Ltd (ASX:BMG) has engaged geophysics company Geodatos Chile to undertake further geophysical resistivity surveys at its Salar West Project in Chile.

The surveys will be conducted on the prospective 2,100 hectares recently added to Salar West, in the southwestern area of the Atacama salar.

BMG aims to test the extension of the strong conductive horizon potentially associated with lithium brines identified in the first round of geophysics, which directly abuts the new area.

Previous testing used the transient electromagnetic method (TEM) and identified a conductive unit across the 4,200-hectare southern area of Salar West.

The conductive unit contains a substantial volume corresponding to resistivities of less than 2 ohm-metres, potentially representing hypersaline lithium-bearing brine extending south from the surface of the Atacama salar.

The additional westward extension of the conductivity response provides further confidence in a wider prospective area.

Thick conductive horizon

BMG will test the extension of the conductive horizon which varies in thickness between 35 and 180 metres, along roughly 5 kilometres on each TEM line.

The horizon identified trended directly into the 2,100-hectare adjacent area of Salar West.

The company expects the study to be completed and processed within the next 4-6 weeks.
