The project is currently in the phase of exploration of the Salar de Incahuasi, which lies in the northwest of the province of Salta (Argentina), in the southern half of the "Lithium Triangle". The salt flats measure 17 km from north to south, and are 2.5 km wide. The geological environment in Incahuasi is similar to that of other salt flats in the Puna region where lithium and potassium can be found. The project covers a surface area of 13,711 hectares, representing 90% of the salt flats.
The Salar de Incahuasi shows potential for lithium-rich brines. The initial surface sampling tasks have returned values of up to 409 mg/l lithium, while geophysical studies indicate the potential for lithium-rich brines at depth.
This initial program included four diamond-drilled holes reaching depths of approximately 400 meters. The drill-holes were designed to test two highly conductive domains identified by a geophysical vertical electrical sounding (VES). These have been interpreted as brine bodies running along a stretch of 12 km parallel to the long axis of the salt flats.
Ganfeng Litio Argentina S.A. is the subsidiary of Ganfeng Lithium in Argentina in charge of exploration tasks.
