Clear Sky Lithium Corp. [POWR– CSE; CSKYF-OTC; K4A/WKN: A3DM2W-FSE] has begun a phase 1 work plan for the 100%-owned Halo project, Nevada, to be undertaken by Tigren Inc. of Reno, Nevada, and is mobilizing for commencement of work in October. Tigren Inc. is controlled by Marco Montecinos, a director of the company.
The goal of the program is to develop an understanding of the Big Smoky Valley basinal alluvial cover within the Halo project land package via full surface grab sampling (where applicable) as well as surficial mapping of the claim area. The resulting data will be utilized to refine geological and metallurgical assessments to support phase 2 drill targeting.
Patrick Morris, CEO, noted: “Being directly in between two projects that are continually producing such positive results gives support that Clear Sky is in the right place with the Halo project. We are excited to get our team on site to advance the project through foundational fieldwork and metallurgy. For now, it simply feels great to see our neighbours enjoying positive results, and we look forward to joining with them as we collectively move ahead to unlock asset value throughout the area.”
The Halo project comprises 98 mineral claims, located in Esmeralda and Nye counties, and is considered prospective for claystone-hosted lithium mineralization. Positive news regarding exploration and development on adjacent properties to the north and southwest of the Halo project have recently fuelled enthusiasm for regional lithium exploration activities in the area.
To the north of the Halo project, on July 14, 2022, American Lithium Corp. (market cap: US$546-million) announced results from its resource expansion and infill drilling program. This release included five holes that returned its best result to date of 2,900 parts per million Li (lithium) averaging 1,550 ppm Li over 50.3 metres.
To the southwest, on June 21, 2022, American Battery Technology Company (market Cap: US$461-million) announced highlights from a phase 1 drilling program of 16 holes which returned up to 1,700 ppm Li.
Clear Sky Lithium holds interests on the Halo and Eli properties in Nevada. The company is also focusing on the development of claystone extraction and processing technologies aimed at delivering scalable efficiencies across the value chain in a sustainable manner.
