Nevada Lithium
Project Background

Two areas staked in the Tonopah district of Nevada, USA – Montezuma Well and Big Smoky Valley, prospective for large-scale sedimentary-hosted lithium claystone deposits.

The claims are located within the world class mining-friendly jurisdiction of the Nevada lithium district and host similar geology to known major lithium deposits in the region – including American Lithium (TLC deposit), American Battery Technology Company (Tonopah Flats deposit), Ioneer (Rhyolite Ridge deposit) and Century Lithium (Clayton Valley deposit).

They are also about 350km southeast of the Tesla Gigafactory.

Ground exploration and reverse circulation (RC) drilling planned to test the prospect areas for claystone-hosted lithium mineralisation.

242 total claims of 2 prospect

Public land controlled by the BLM

Tier 1 mining jurisdiction

Strong demand for critical minerals in the USA

The claim areas lie within public land controlled by the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which provides a clear pathway to undertake exploration programs.

Montezuma Well Prospect consists of 59 claims and is located 2km west of American Lithium Corporation’s TLC deposit and 4km north of American Battery Technology’s recently announced Tonopah Flats discovery.

Big Smoky Valley Prospect consists of 183 claims and is located 30km south-west of the TLC deposit, 30km north-east of Ioneer’s Rhyolite Ridge deposit and 20km north of Silver Peak.

West Cobar’s claims areas lie in relatively flat arid country allowing all-year-round access for exploration.
