Extensive distribution of high grade potash was discovered at the International Lithium Corp. (TSXV:ILC) 100% owned Mariana brine project at Salar de Llullaillaco in the province of Salta, northwestern Argentina. The results demonstrate significant, consistent grades of potassium, with strong lithium and boron upside potential, remaining open at depth, in all four holes drilled.
As quoted in the press release:
The highest grades of potash reported in an Argentine Salar;
High potash values continue from surface to bottom in all holes;
Potash, lithium and boron grades are open at depth.
International Lithium President Kirill Klip said:
“We are very encouraged with the results from the Phase 1 resource delineation drilling at Mariana that confirmed our belief in the potential of this multi-commodity potash-lithium-boron brine project. The observed extent of high grade potash brine encountered provides ILC the support and confidence to continue to advance our plans towards development. The objective for the next stage of exploration is to complete the remaining 10 to 12 holes needed for delineation drilling in conjunction with hydrogeological testing required to produce a reportable resource. Drilling will be designed to test structures that may control higher grade potash, lithium or boron zones”
