Salar de Helados


  • Near-surface brine samples assaying up to 1190 mg/l lithium.
  • Grades comparable to production  grades at the  SQM and Albemarle´s  Salar de Atacama production plants.
  • Excellent chemistry; Li:K ratio 0.1,  Mg:Li ratio 2.6. TEM surveys detected a large high conductivity anomaly within 200m of surface.
  • This anomaly covers  at least 60 square kilometers, is 200 – 300+ m thick and locally open to depth. Gravity surveys indicate that the salar basin in the area of TEM anomaly is 300 – 700m deep.
