Orocobre Limited (TSX:ORL,ASX:ORE) announced that grid auger drilling at Salinas Grandes is now complete.

As quoted in the press release:

A total of 47 solid stem auger holes were drilled on a north–south oriented grid, with an average spacing of 1.7 km between drill holes. Holes were drilled vertically to depths of 2m to 20 m, depending on access conditions within the salar. Geological samples were logged and results compiled on geological sections, which show a significant increase in sand on the northern margins of the salar, where sand has been sourced from the northern alluvial fan.

Orocobre’s Managing Director, Richard Seville said:

We have received the results of specific yield porosity determinations made at the British Geological Survey Laboratories. These results are very similar to those at our Olaroz project for the same sediment types and will be used in the resource estimate.
