CALGARY, ALBERTA - TheNewswire - February 15, 2022 - Lithium Chile Inc. ( "Lithium Chile" or the "Company") (TSXV:LITH) (OTC:LTMCF) is pleased to announce it has commenced their phase 2 drilling program consisting of three, 500-metre-deep step-out holes aimed at expanding the lithium resource and increasing the grade on the Arizaro property. The program is announced after an initial resource of 1,420,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate ("Li2CO3") equivalent in the Indicated and Inferred Resource categories was reported on their maiden well (see February 8, 2022 News Release). Well permitting and an environmental impact study are currently underway. Drilling of the first well is anticipated by the end of March. The 3 well program is scheduled to take 6 months.
As recommended by the company's QP, Montgomery & Associates, steel casing will be installed down the wellbore and the upper halite will be cemented off to prevent dilution by lithium-poor brine from the upper zones. On the Company's initial well, samples during various tests returned values up to 555 mg/ls.
Steve Cochrane, President and CEO of Lithium Chile, commented on the Salar de Arizaro Project: "After such encouraging results on the NI 43-101 resource estimate of our maiden well, the important next steps for our Company and its Shareholders are to expand the lithium resource and prove the overall grade with the phase 2 drilling program on the Arizaro property. As a result of our deep relationships with the Argentina community, we have secured a drilling rig for the duration of the project, which we estimate to take around 6 months"
