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 area 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 assemble a significant and highly prospective land package that has remained free from extensive exploration or development to-date. The initial geophysics and trend data suggest that the entire Tolillar Salar is 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 Tolillar Salar. We have received conditional approval from the TSX-V to complete just such a transaction and are working towards final approval and closing in 2019. 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.
“There is no such thing as too much lithium in the world today.”
