NRG Metals (TSX-V: NGZ) (OTCQB: NRGMF) (Frankfurt: OGPN) the company is pleased to report that it has mobilized a rotary drill to the Hombre Muerto North lithium project to complement the diamond drill already at site. The rotary hole, which is located 15 meters east of the core hole currently underway, is to carry out pump testing. The project is located in the province of Salta, Argentina at the northern end of the prolific Hombre Muerto Salar, adjacent to FMC’s producing Fenix mine and Galaxy Resources’ Sal de Vida development stage project.
As quoted in the press release:
As of May 8, the rotary hole had advanced to a depth of 153 meters. The hole will be drilled to a depth of 300 to 400 meters, depending upon the results obtained in the core hole. The rotary hole is being drilled at a diameter of 12 inches, and upon completion, the hole diameter will be enlarged by reaming to a diameter of 17 inches, and 10-inch perforated casing will be installed so that pumping tests can be performed. If the results warrant, the hole can be utilized as a production well.
