Galan Lithium Ltd (ASX:GLN) has revealed exceptional preliminary assay results from its maiden drill hole at Pata Pila, which forms part of its Western Basin Projects on the Hombre Muerto salar in Argentina.

Western Basin Projects

The Pata Pila licence covers a large alluvial fan adjacent to Livent Corporation’s (NYSE:LVHM) tenure covering the western margin of the Hombre Muerto salar.

The drill hole intercepted several brine horizons varying from 25 metres to 258 metres in thickness and was completed at 718 metres after encountering basement at a depth of 713 metres.

Preliminary results from four samples returned consistent, high lithium grades greater than 900 mg/l (milligram/litre) with low impurity levels.

These results are significant, being some of the highest‐grade results reported from any brine project in Argentina to date.

Further samples taken to the end of the hole also reported heavy brines with high specific gravity values ~1.20 and conductivities >200 mS/cm (millisiemens per centimetre).

Galan is planning to undertake double packer tests following downhole geophysics which is currently underway.
