Ameriwest’s technical group has acknowledged the potential of the valley and the Property as a probable host for lithium brine deposits, and we’re excited to maneuver ahead with a geophysics examine to realize an understanding of the subsurface potentialities for lithium brines which may be hosted in varied aquifers.”
ECV is a playa in a hydrologically closed basin in north central Nevada. Earlier work by america Geological Survey (“USGS”) discovered anomalous concentrations of lithium within the playa. The Property has been characterised to include saline alkaline fluids at depth and there’s direct geothermal fluid enter into the basin with geothermal vitality manufacturing potential. See determine 1.

ECV is strategically positioned two hours east of the Tesla Gigafactory and a pair of.5 hours north of Albemarle’s Silver Peak operation in Clayton Valley. There may be direct freeway entry, energy, and the Property is positioned close to the cities of Fallon and Austin.
Lithium brines within the area are identified to build up in valleys with the next traits:
- An arid local weather
- Hydrologically closed basin with a playa
- Tectonically pushed basin growth
- Related geothermal exercise
- Surrounding felsic rhyolite potential supply rocks
- A number of sufficient aquifers
- Adequate geologic time to pay attention a brine
All these situations are met inside the Edwards Creek Valley (ECV). See determine 2.
