American Lithium ticks all the boxes investors want.

LOCATION

One of the key elements of getting lithium brine out of the ground is like the adage about the three keys to retail success: location, location, location.

And to have the best view forward into the future of lithium extraction, American Lithium looked to the past: what is the location with a great history of delivering great results?

American Lithium’s Fish Lake Valley, Nevada operation – more than 20,000 acres – is a few miles from Clayton Valley, and just 3 ½ hours from the Tesla Gigafactory. It is only 20 miles from Albemarle’s Silver Peak project, America’s oldest and largest lithium project.

Clayton Valley has seen mining operations since the 1880’s, first for silver, and more recently for lithium. (The Albemarle project has been in operation since 1966 and in 2015, they mined 175,000 tonnes of lithium) This gives American Lithium the advantage of watching what a major player does and gave American Lithium the opportunity to discover ways to improve on their operations and techniques.

  1. They closely studied Albemarle’s active lithium brine production.
  2. They also watched several other lithium operations in the area.
  3. They determined there was a great wealth of lithium brine that the other guys simply could not – or would not – go after.
  4. American Lithium did not reinvent the wheel – they just figured out a way to make it work better.
  5. American Lithium found and claimed property as close as possible to Clayton Valley with nearly identical geophysical features.
  6. Then they went to work building a comprehensive, long-term and strategic plan to extract, process and ship lithium brine. (You can find an outline of the American Lithium plan below.)

What does this location mean for American Lithium and their investors?

While some companies explore in the lithium triangle in South America, American Lithium prefers to focus on a location here in the US. That means dealing with familiar rules and regulations, easy-to-reach manufacturers, and an experienced workforce.

American Lithium takes full advantage of all these features to produce reliable, high-quality lithium from a well-known source.

Today, well-informed investors take advantage of the investment opportunity that is American Lithium.

TEST RESULTS

Test results from preliminary drilling showed:

  • Sampled near surface lithium brines up to 300 mg/l Li
  • 3D model delivered excellent targets for deeper basin exploration
  • Claystone identified to the South and East of the basin
  • 3D basin model drives acquisition of additional claystone target land
  • Drilled and sampled four exploratory holes up to 500 feet using sonic drilling techniques at opposite ends (N-S) of the property
  • Completed initial geophysical basin study
  • Collected 214 near-surface samples from the North area of the property
  • 55 near-surface samples collected from the North Playa averaged 150 mg/L and ranged from 100– 300 mg/L

What do all those numbers mean to you?

First, let’s talk about drilling depth. Many of American Lithium’s competitors drilled test water wells in the area, but they were too shallow to find the precious lithium brine.

American Lithium found no brine for the first 450+ feet. But by the time they got to the 500-foot level, they found what they wanted.

They found Lithium Carbonate in both the brine and the sedimentary rock. And as you can see from the chart above, both are rich in product value (about $8,000 per tonne) but both have lower costs of extraction ($2,500 to $4,000 per tonne for brine and $3,500 to $4,500 per tonne for sedimentary.)

American Lithium made a bonus discovery.

Their exploration turned up rich deposits of Boron. Amorphous boron is used as a rocket fuel igniter and in pyrotechnic flares. It gives the flares a distinctive green colour. It is found in eye drops, mild antiseptics, washing powders and tile glazes. Boric oxide is used commonly in the manufacture of borosilicate glass (Pyrex). It makes the glass tough and heat resistant. Fibreglass textiles and insulation are made from borosilicate glass.

The cost-of-extraction and per-tonne value of boron is very similar to lithium, so large additional profits are very possible from this project.

Add it all up: lower cost of extraction, plus greater value, plus additional mineral finds, equal a very profitable situation that should result in a positive situation for investors.

INFRASTRUCTURE

Infrastructure in the mining world means roads, power and water supplies, workforce, and government rules and regulations that all fit together to help the explorer find, extract, prepare and ship the product to manufacturers.

American Lithium’s Fish Lake Valley project is a clean slate:

  • Without any complex regulatory or water issues
  • Benefitting from existing power, water and transportation infrastructure
  • With the advantage of watching, learning and adapting plans based on the advancement of exciting new and expected production techniques

Infrastructure is concrete, steel and electricity.

The Nevada site is close to a major highway interchange, located approximately 20 miles from US Route 6, and Highways 264, 265 and 266. All of these are well-maintained, all-weather roads.

This means it is easy for American Lithium employees to get to and from the site, and for easy movement of the lithium to the nearby (and even some faraway) final processing facilities. This easy access reduces production costs significantly (as opposed to operations in South America, some hundreds of miles from top-quality roads.)

There are two power sources close by, an existing plant just 9 miles away and an ongoing local geothermal power facility.

You need power to extract the lithium brine and claystone from the dry lakebed. Power for the pumps to draw the water from the 500-foot water wells.

Power for the evaporation process comes from the sun (lithium brine sits in large pools for a few weeks – the water evaporates, and the remnant lithium is transported to processing facilities.)

And as you probably know, the Nevada desert supplies plenty of sun power, almost every day of the year. Few cloudy days (and fewer rainy days) which means the evaporation process moves along quickly and continuously. That provides a steady and reliable stream of product for shipment.

American Lithium selected this site for this exact reason. They know that their investors need to know that the supply chain is always moving in a positive direction.

And while the process to create usable lithium involves removing the water, potable water is still vital to the entire operation


In the hot Nevada sun, machinery needs water for cooling, as do the employees.

There is plenty of potable water in the Valley, with shallow to medium depth resources  across the basin.

So American Lithium does not have the huge additional costs of trucking in water supplies that would add another line item to the budget (and hurt profitability.)

The final piece of the infrastructure jigsaw is proximity to people. While the FLV site is in the middle of a dry lakebed, it is not in the middle of nowhere.

Dyer, Nevada is just 12 miles south, and Tonopah NV (population about 2,500) is 46 miles due East.

Having populated areas nearby means workers do not feel isolated (as they would in the salt lakes of South America) and happy workers work better to deliver excellent work.

This also results in an easier recruitment process, which attracts top-level and experienced employees (and keeps salaries and wages within reason.)

Happy workers generate happy bosses, and that translates to happier investors.

PLANS FOR SUCCESS

American Lithium (TSXv: Li, OTCQB: LIACF) continues to plan for successful development of its lithium brine and claystone operations in Fish Lake Valley. Upcoming programs include:

  • American Lithium will conduct detailed geological mapping, collection and analysis of surface samples of the Tertiary claystone and related deposits on the west, north and east sides of the North Playa (two explorations in Q2 2018)
  • American Lithium will create a Phase 2 basin model (analysis underway in Q1 2018)
  • Detailed topographic mapping using photogrammetric or LiDAR techniques (Q3 2018)
  • Shortly, American Lithium will begin the drilling of 10-20 medium depth (100-300 feet) borings to further identify the extent of lithium bearing Tertiary deposits (Q3 2018)
  • That will be followed by further deep drilling to 1800 feet to evaluate the extent of lithium bearing brines, claystones and related deposits; first target is next to the 500-foot-deep 2016 well 13A, which had a temperature and mineralization spike near the bottom (Q3 2018)
  • American Lithium will identify additional deep drill locations for evaluating extent and character of lithium brines (Q4 2018)
  • American Lithium will create grid samples of existing and newly acquired claims for lithium claystone’s (Q3 2018)
  • And it will identify additional shallow drill sites for lithium claystones (Q3 2018)

American Lithium identified an opportunity and set in motion a strategic and tactical plan to capitalize on it. The items above list additional drilling, testing and sampling that, based on existing results, should reap a huge reward for the company and its investors.

The plan also focuses American Lithium on the two available sources of lithium: the brine water and the claystone. As both are excellent sources of the metal required to power the batteries of tomorrow, both will be expertly and thoroughly mined by American Lithium.

Sophisticated investors appreciate the fact that both sources will be tapped into during this project, and that additional, valuable raw resource material (boron) will add to the profitability of the Fish Lake Valley operation. That’s why so many active investors add American Lithium to their portfolio.

THE DEMAND IS GROWING

American Lithium recognizes the worldwide demand for clean energy sources. Every day, more computers, phones and cars run on lithium power.

Cell phones may only need a small amount of lithium for their batteries. But companies manufacture millions of cell phones every year around the world. (In China alone, in the last year, more than 139,580,000 cell phones were built!)

Today, around the world, almost 2 million (1.9 million) electric cars hit the roads everyday.

In this year alone, 256,300,000 computers will be built and sold – each one with a lithium-ion battery.

The Fish Lake Valley project aims to contribute greatly to the global desire for lithium-ion power.

This is the best news investors can hear about American Lithium — the supply/demand situation worldwide creates tremendous confidence in the investment opportunity for consistent growth for years to come.

The chart below clearly and dramatically demonstrates the major climb in demand and growth.
