Lithium sample results from the Teels Marsh area have been returned to Dajin Resources Corp. The surface lithium samples, a total of 74, were tested at approximately 1,000 feet intervals along east-west lines 1,600 feet apart.
The highest analyses of lithium from the sample was 460 ppm. 28 samples were higher than 150 with only 5 of the assays lower than 100 ppm.
Not only were surface samples taken but so were brine samples. With samples between the 10 to 70 ppm range. Others were diluted from the October and November 2014 rains that had fallen on the area prior to collection.
With sampling and analyses complete, Dajin will not carry out geophysical and sampling surveys with deeper drilling in order to test the depth and size of the aquifers within the Teels Marsh basin and their lithium concentrates.
Only 50 miles northwest of Rockwood Lithium Inc. in Silver Peak, Rockwood is the only brine based producing lithium mine in operation in North America.
Lithium is the result of a classic, fault bounded closed basin. Active tectonics, have, over time, created the basin which trapped ground water within the sedimentary fill rich in volcanic sediments. The trapped ground water has circulated for millennia in a climate where evaporation was greater than precipitation. This climate leads to an enrichment of the basin’s ground water with soluble salts of lithium and boron.
The Teels Marsh basin is likely to have been formed by the Mono Lake Crater eruptions.
Dajin Resources Corp. is based out of Canada and was recently cleared for trading in the United States.
