Southern Lithium (TSXV:SNL) has provided an updated for its lithium exploration program announced December 6, 2016 to be executed at its Cruz property in Argentina.
As quoted in the press release:

The Company is waiting for the review process of the previously submitted application to be completed and the issuance of the permit to drill the property in first quarter of 2017. While waiting for the permit to be issued, the Company has initiated a geophysical survey that will enable the Company to delineate bodies of brine and identify drill targets.
The Phase I lithium brine exploration program will consist of drilling one core hole at two separate locations in the salar to establish stratigraphic and porosity data, and for brine extraction and evaporation trials. At both sites, an HQ core hole will test the salar to a depth of 350m, or deeper if warranted to ensure that any brine bodies identified by the geophysical survey in the salar basin are sampled. In the deeper parts of some salar basins, coarse sediments that were deposited early during the filling of the basins have the potential to be excellent brine aquifers.
During the drilling, samples for chemical analysis will be collected using a drive point system, which employs an in-situ sampling tool to collect brine samples from discrete vertical intervals. The brine will be tested on-site to determine density, conductivity and pH. Chemical analysis will be will be completed at a specialized, certified laboratory.
After drilling the core holes, down-hole geophysics will be used to target potentially productive zones. Subsequently, each hole will be cleaned and fitted with slotted casing and a gravel filter for possible future use as a monitoring well if results indicate that an adjacent pumping test well be drilled.
