Phil Thomas CEO said, “Drilling was very fast and we intersected a sand unit near the bottom of the hole which didn’t have as much brine as the clay halite units above it. The sand unit was possibly an ancient river area where clean sand had settled but was not compacted. Dr Romina Steinmetz who completed her PhD at Guayatayoc visited the drill site and inspected the core. This analysis was consistent with the geophysics so there was no advantage to drill deeper. We are looking forward to the results from SGS and downhole geophysics as it will have a lot of information we can use when we drill in Rincondillas area in Guayatayoc III. It is great that we got the Rincondillas UGAMP meeting scheduled for 28 February 2019 allowing us to progress this exciting lithium project”.
