Scotch Creek Ventures (SCV) has completed the latest round of exploration on its Highlands West Lithium Project.

The Vancouver-based, lithium-focussed exploration company is now finished its reflection seismic survey work program.

The Highlands West Lithium Project is located in Clayton Valley, Nevada.

Results are currently being compiled and assessed.

The company hopes when complete, the results will provide a greater understanding of the area’s subsurface geology.

Results of the campaign should provide the information necessary to identify precise drill targets for any upcoming programs on the project.

“The initial compilation of the results of the recently completed seismic survey at Highlands has confirmed the presence of significant graben sub-basins underlying the property. Additionally, the seismic data further indicates the presence of well-bedded rock units within several structurally controlled sub-basins lying in the west central Clayton Valley. The well-bedded nature of the units, as seen in the seismic data, is considered indicative of lacustrine facies Esmeralda Formation basin fill, likely including claystone, mudstones and ash stones. These sub-basins are of kilometre width and multi kilometre length, as indicated in the completed seismic and detailed gravity survey completed on the property. Sharp contacts seen in both gravity and seismic data indicate uplifted basement rocks at the margins of the identified sub-basins. Scotch Creek is prioritizing first-round initial drill targets, a process which includes decisions between numerous high-quality lithium brine drill targets underlying the Highlands property,” said Scotch Creek Technical Director Robert D. Marvin.

Scotch Creek Ventures is down 3.12 percent, trading at $0.31 at 11:53 am ET.
