THOMPSON VALLEY, ARIZONA
ARIZONA’S PROMISING FUTURE
Surface clay deposits known as the “White Hills” were initially discovered in the mid-1950’s and were known to contain bentonite and hectorite clays. Exploration data from the 1960’s shows lithium content of the bentonite ranges from 0.3 to 0.5% Li2O (1,400 to 2,300 ppm Li), which is similar to the lithium contents for other lithium-clay projects located further north in Arizona.
Ameriwest Lithium’s newest acquisition, Thompson Valley, is a prospective lithium sedimentary deposit with surface or near-surface exposure of lithium-bearing clays, with historic grades similar to those found in similar deposits in Clayton Valley
* Note that these are historic samples taken prior to the implementation of National Instrument 43-101 and the results have not been verified. The results do indicate the presence of lithium and warrant the need for additional exploration to evaluate the deposits.
