Rodinia Lithium Reports Additional Surface Sampling Results from Salar De Diablillos Project

Rodinia Lithium has reported further surface sampling results from Salar de Diablillos project in Salta Province, Argentina.

The results from an ongoing surface mining of ulexite in Salar’s top three meters and three large surface pits encountered high-grade lithium, boron and potassium, especially the P8 and P9 samples have yielded highest values of lithium that was sampled at the Salar producing 1800 mg/L lithium, 990 mg/L boron and 13000 mg/L potassium.

The CEO and President of Rodinia, has stated that these encouraging results are significantly of higher grade than the former sampling program, which was done with an auger drill. These samples produced more positive results, because it was collected following an extreme rainfall period. This is a key advancement in the Aquifer I definition. The company is currently looking at the chance of developing this aquifer through a sequence of trenches or pits analogous to the Utah Salt Flats’ brine potash mines.

The samples from the pit continue the favourable geochemistry of the brine of Salar that is featured by a typically low sulphate to lithium proportions and low magnesium to lithium proportions. Lower sulphate levels can decrease the requirement of exclusive reagents during the conventional evaporation processing methods, which are likely to be used at the Salar. ALS Laboratory Group in Fort Collins will test the prepared samples.
