CR LITHIUM CLAIMS
The CR LITHIUM PROJECT is located in the eastern Clayton Valley, 18 kilometres southwest of the Rockwood Lithium Mine and Processing Plant Complex in Silver Peak, Esmeralda Country, Nevada. The claims cover over 330 hectares of basinal feature akin to the Clayton Valley.
This basin represents an isolated and un-drilled basin target which has the potential to host a similar lithium brine environment by virtue of its proximal location to the possible source of the lithium within the Clayton Valley system. This project area has been the subject of an initial gravity surveys and shows a basinal feature, which if closed, could host brines with elevated lithium concentrations
Clayton Valley is one of several intermountain basin depressions within the Nevada Basin and Range physiographic province. The Clayton Valley Basin has a northeast to southwest strike and is located between the Paymaster Ridge on the East and Mineral Ridge on the West. The Tertiary rocks in the area are mostly widespread pyroclastic material in ash-flow sheets with a silicic to intermediate composition. The older tuff sheets are believed to be early to middle Oligocene in age and crop out on the flanks of Mineral Ridge and Montezuma Peak. The Clayton Valley Basin is filled with Pleistocene alluvial fill locally as thick as a several thousand feet covered with a veneer of Holocene sediments.
The Tertiary volcanics in the area are interpreted to be the primary source rock for the lithium in the Clayton Valley system, as their higher elevation location has affording the lithium in solution to migrate to the closed Clayton Valley Basin where the lithium ponds in the confined aquifer within the basin.
