Clayton Valley is one of the few locations globally known to contain commercial-grade lithium-enriched brine. The Valley is an internally drained closed-basin and is surrounded by mountains, hills and ridges on all sides. It contains an underground unconsolidated water bearing system (or aquifer system) which is host to lithium-enriched brines and is contained by the surrounding rock.  The decision to acquire the project was based on descriptions of geological modeling and historical drilling results (Western Geothermal Ltd) in a report authored by J.B. Hulen, PG, (July 31,2008). Mr Hulen concluded that shallow thermal-gradient drilling and lithium-exploration drilling by previous operators demonstrated that the area underlying this portion of Clayton Valley contained the valley's highest subsurface temperatures.

In other news and recent happenings around the sector:  Chilean chemicals firm Chemical & Mining Co. of Chile Inc. (NYSE: SQM) said on recently that it had entered into a joint venture with Canadian junior miner Lithium Americas (OTC: WLCDF) to develop a lithium project in Argentina, at a time when demand and prices for the key battery ingredient are rocketing.  SQM and Lithium Americas said in a statement that they will immediately move forward with an updated feasibility study for the Cauchari-Olaroz lithium project near the Chilean and Bolivian borders.  The study will examine the economic feasibility of a project with annual output of 40,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent, they said.
