An Undeveloped Large Area Play Surrounded by Success
Alpha Lithium has brought together a team of industry professionals and experienced stakeholders who bring a big picture de-risked proven approach to global lithium mining.
While the relentless interest and increasing demand for lithium continues to grow, our team believes that the worldwide commercial interests won’t be waiting for new sources and processing methods – the reality is that the Argentine region of the “Lithium Triangle” hosts the most experienced personnel and infrastructure ever assembled to service the advanced needs of major producers that virtually surround our areas of interest. Instead of thinking in terms of decades to production, we know that lithium brine extraction is a commercially proven success story in daily production throughout the region.
Alpha Lithium has leveraged it’s connections and expertise to initially assemble a significant and highly prospective land package that has remained free from extensive exploration or development to-date. The preliminary geophysics and trend data suggested that the entire Tolillar Salar was worthy of extensive study and could be capable of an accelerated development program based on results. Therefore, our investigation led us to seek 100% ownership of 27,500 hectares (67,954 acres) of the Tolillar Salar. Subsequent work programs included 15 exploration wells drilled and the discovery of significant freash water supply. Drill results show 2.1m tonnes LCE indicated and 1.2m tonnes LCE inferred, and tested to 504 mg/L with only 32% of the salar explored to-date. Our second project area is in the nearby world famous and extremely productive Hombre Muerto salar. We have aquired 5,000 hectares so far and llithium concenterations have been reported up 2,000 mg/L with low impurities (2.5:1 Mg:Li) in a region bordered by major players such as Livent, POSCO and Allkem. Please review our materials and reach out to contact us if you have any questions. This truly could be the last big lithium opportunity in this world-famous, proven and productive region.
