Ameriwest Lithium Inc. (AWLI) has discovered significant lithium concentrations at its Thompson Valley Property in Arizona.

The discovery was made thanks to surface geologic mapping and initial surface sampling program that began in June.

Assay results from 44 surface grab samples show lithium contents ranging from 15 to 1,670 parts per million of lithium (ppm Li). From the 44 samples submitted for assaying, 27 per cent had lithium contents greater than 500 ppm, and 9 per cent were greater than 1,000 ppm.

Ameriwest’s President and CEO, David Watkinson, explained that this sedimentary clay deposit has surface or near-surface exposures of lithium-bearing materials deposited in a lacustrine environment and potentially hosts a significant lithium deposit, subject to exploration success.

“Continued exploration is warranted and will include additional surface sampling to define drill targets. Once the drill targets are defined and permitting is complete, Ameriwest’s technical team looks forward to drilling the Property with the ultimate goal of delineating lithium resources.”

The company plans to take additional surface samples for assay and to define drill targets.

The TV Property is 190 km north of Phoenix, near a large copper mine by Bagdad, AZ 56 km to the northwest. 

Ameriwest Lithium Inc. is a Canada-based exploration company focused on identifying lithium mineral resource projects for exploration and development. The company is exploring its 13,580-acre Railroad Valley property, the 22,210-acre Edwards Creek Valley, and the 5,600-acre Deer Musk East property in Nevada. The company is also exploring the 2,860-acre Thompson Valley property in Arizona.

Ameriwest Lithium Inc. (AWLI) is trading steady at C$0.80 a share as of 9:55 am ET.
