Pure Energy Minerals Limited (TSXV:PE) reported exploration activities on its Lithium brine project in Esmeralda County Nevada. During the first half of 2014, a drilling permit had been issued by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and Pure Energy is currently preparing for initial exploration.
As quoted in the press release:
Site preparation is currently underway, an initial exploration well is planned to test a specific target identified by detailed geophysical surveys conducted on the property. Based on success in finding brine aquifers and anomalous lithium contents, additional geophysical surveys and further drilling may be planned to expand on the information about hydrogeology and lithium mineralization that might be discovered. It is anticipated that this phase of drilling will commence subsequent to the CV/DB drill program.
