Ameriwest’s technical group has acknowledged the potential of the valley and the Property as a possible host for lithium brine deposits, and we’re excited to maneuver ahead with a geophysics research to attain an understanding of the subsurface prospects for lithium brines which may be hosted in numerous aquifers.”
ECV is a playa in a hydrologically closed basin in north central Nevada. Earlier work by the USA Geological Survey (“USGS”) discovered anomalous concentrations of lithium within the playa. The Property has been characterised to include saline alkaline fluids at depth and there’s direct geothermal fluid enter into the basin with geothermal power manufacturing potential. See determine 1.

ECV is strategically positioned two hours east of the Tesla Gigafactory and a pair of.5 hours north of Albemarle’s Silver Peak operation in Clayton Valley. There may be direct freeway entry, energy, and the Property is positioned close to the cities of Fallon and Austin.
Lithium brines within the area are recognized to build up in valleys with the next traits:
- An arid local weather
- Hydrologically closed basin with a playa
- Tectonically pushed basin improvement
- Related geothermal exercise
- Surrounding felsic rhyolite potential supply rocks
- A number of sufficient aquifers
- Enough geologic time to pay attention a brine
All these circumstances are met inside the Edwards Creek Valley (ECV). See determine 2.
