VANCOUVER, BC - TheNewswire - August 22, 2019 - One World Lithium Inc. (OTCQB:OWRDF) (CNSX:OWLI.CN) (the "Company" or "OWL") announces it has appointed Montgomery and Associates ("M-&-A") as Operator for its upcoming drill programs on its Salar del Diablo lithium brine project located in Baja California, Mexico.
Initially, M-&-A is planning to diamond drill four core holes to approximately 600 meters in depth to collect some 20 groundwater samples at specified depths per hole using a depth-specific packer system. On reviewing the sample laboratory results, M-&-A will then recommend a second phase of exploration.
Preparation has started at M-&-A's Santiago, Chile and Salta, Argentina offices. An initial site visit is also planned for September 09, 2019 with John Hiner, former Operator, to familiarize M-&-A with the property and finalize protocol documents for drilling, sampling, and testing. Doug Fulcher, OWL's CEO, and Kevin Milledge, a Director will also attend.
The initial holes will not require either occupancy permits, drilling permits, or an environmental study as they will be covered by existing permits. The drill program is slated to start either in late September or early October, 2019.
