EDWARDS CREEK VALLEY, NEVADA

EDWARDS CREEK PROJECT

EDWARDS CREEK VALLEY, NEVADA

OVERVIEW

Edwards Creek Valley (ECV) is a playa in a hydrologically closed basin in north central Nevada containing 1,243 contiguous claims totalling 22,200 acres.

The Company believes ECV, located about 120 miles east of Reno, Nevada, has the potential to host a large lithium brine deposit based on geophysical studies done on the Property to date.  A large gravity low was discovered during a recent gravity geophysical program at the ECV and it is believed this low may delineate a basin that has have potential to host brine deposits similar in characteristics to those located in Clayton Valley, Nevada, subject to exploration success.

Edwards Creek Valley also exhibits the geologic features for a lithium brine exploration target, which are:

  • Hydrologically closed basin with a playa
  • Tectonically driven basin development
  • Associated geothermal activity
  • Surrounding felsic tuffaceous sediments and potential source rocks
  • One or more adequate aquifers
  • Sufficient geologic time to concentrate a brine

There is direct highway access, power, and the property is located near the towns of Fallon and Austin.

GRAVITY STUDY

Ameriwest retained Tom Carpenter, consulting geophysicist, to conduct a Phase 1 gravity study of its ECV claims.  Field work was completed from November 11, 2021. through November 19, 2021.  Results from this gravity survey indicated a large geophysical low on Ameriwest’s claim block, extending to the northeast off the claim block.  Ameriwest has subsequently staked an additional 414 claims (bringing total number to 1,243 coniguous claims) to ensure the gravity low anomaly is effectively captured within the Company’s expanded claim block.  The gravity low is interpreted to be a large depression, filled with sediments, which is part of a closed valley basin.  These that has potential conditions are needed to host large lithium brine deposits.  Note: is “large” too promotional?  I omit it since we can’t prove that a large one exists.

Based on the large gravity low identified in the northeast section of the claim block in Phase 1 and the preliminary results from the single MT line in Phase 2, Ameriwest has expanded the Phase 2 study to include two additional MT lines to the northeast of the four initially planned lines to cover the newly expanded claims.  This work is scheduled for early 2022, dependent on weather and ground conditions in the valley.

Geological similarities between ECV and Clayton Valley does not guarantee exploration success at ECV or that mineral resources or reserves will be delineated on the Property.  No mineral resources or reserves have yet been defined on the ECV Property.
