The West End Lithium Project is a world-class, shallow lithium deposit located in a low-risk jurisdiction just outside of Tonopah, Nevada. CDSG Lithium has partnered with Barrel Energy Inc. to utilize the company’s highly-innovative lithium extraction methodologies designed for clay-hosted desposts.
The WEL site, comprised of 24 unpatented lode claims, is strategically located directly adjacent to the TLC Lithium-in-clay project. Surficial rock samples from the TLC project have reportedly shown widespread lithium held in the sediments that have achieved results of up to 1300-2200 ppm.
The TLC resource’s 8.83 Mt LCE measured and indicated resource now stands well above Nevada’s multi-billion-dollar Thacker Pass Lithium project, which holds 3.13 Mt of proven and probable LCE reserves.
The West End Lithium Project is located just 6 miles northwest of Tonopah, Nevada, which is a small town of roughly 2200 residents that is known for its rich mining history. The vibrant community offers full access to electricity and water needed for lithium mining, as well as roads and local professionals for efficient transport.
An unincorporated town and the county seat of Nye County, Nevada, Tonopah was first settled by Americans in 1900. The discovery of silver-rich ore led to a mining boom that attracted some of the nation’s wealthiest individuals.
Today, as the Town of Tonopah mentions on its website, “Currently several mining companies are conducting exploratory drilling in the Tonopah area. The results are quite promising and may just lead to another Mining boom in Tonopah. In addition to mining Silver and Gold, there is much excitement regarding the possibility of Lithium mining in the area as well.”
