Lithium Chile Provides Ollague Drilling Program Update
TSX VENTURE: LITH
CALGARY, July 23, 2018 /CNW/ - Lithium Chile Inc. ("Lithium Chile") is pleased to provide an update on the ongoing drill program at its wholly-owned Ollague project, located in the Antofagasta Region of Chile.
The first hole, DDH-OLL-01-18, encountered a porous brine saturated salt/sand horizon at a depth of 110 meters which continued to a depth of 290 meters. These depths coincided with the main low conductivity zone detected by the transient electromagnetic survey completed by Lithium Chile on the property during March, 2018 ("TEM" - see news release dated April 3, 2018). DDH-OLL-01-18 was terminated at 300 meters depth after penetrating the Salar basement at 290 meters. The drill rig is now set up on platform 2, located 2 kilometres SW of DDH-OLL-01-18.
In addition to recovering core during the drilling of DDH-OLL-01-18, a fluid sampling program was completed. This consisted of collecting of 1 litre samples at 20-25 meter intervals throughout the 180 meter thickness of the porous zone. The samples were tested on site for salinity and conductivity and then bottled and sealed on site for shipping to accredited laboratory, ALS Patagonia, for chemical analysis.
This news release has been reviewed by Terence Walker, P. Geo., Vice President of Exploration and a qualified person as that term is defined in National Instrument 43-101.
