Dajin Resources Corporation announced that their engineers, Welsh Hagen Associates located in Reno, have completed the construction of access roads and drill pads for the Teels Marsh Lithium brine project located in Mineral County.
Welsh Hagen had provided the design and had prepared the Bureau of Land Management notice of intent and construction services for Dajin.
The drill pads and roads were constructed to “ensure that large-diameter, deep drilling can take place under all weather conditions in the Teels Marsh valley,” as stated in a press released.
Recent flash floods have “tested” the construction, though county roads were washed out. The pads and access roads were unaffected.
The drill pads are designed to support a four hold large-diameter drill program which will test the presence of Lithium-bearing aquifers. These wells are intended to follow-up on the favorable lithium brine which Dajin first announced on June 9, 2016.
The cased wells are deep and large in diameter and will make it able for Dajin or their contractors to not only measure the concentration of the brine in the subsurface aquifers but also carry out flow testing of any Lithium that may be encountered.
Dajin has water rights in the Teels Marsh valley and is being permitted under the state engineer of the Nevada Division of Water Resources. The pump-test volume proposed for these wells are not limited by Nevada Assembly Bill 52 Chapter 507 regulations which are codified under Nevada Revised Statute 534 B which is administered by the Nevada Division of Minerals.
Dajin has 403 placer claims covering 7,914 acres in the Teels Marsh valley.
