Over time, interstitial formational waters in contact with these tuffs have become enriched in Lithium and could possibly be amenable to extraction. Albemarle's Silver Peak operation, the only domestic US lithium producer, is located in Clayton Valley, Nevada, only 22 miles (35 km) to the SE of Fish Lake Valley. The two regions present a highly identical geological setting. Silver Peak, the only lithium carbonate brine producing plant in North America, has been producing since 1967. After opening, Silver Peak was responsible for the closure of several Li enriched pegmatite mines due to the advantageous economics brine extraction has over hard rock mines. The geological setting at Clayton Valley and Fish Lake Valley is highly analogous to the salars of Chile, Bolivia, & Peru. Preliminary sampling here by Lithium Corporation indicates surficial Lithium enrichment can be found on par to that seen at Silver Peak. Fish Lake Valley access is excellent with all weather, gravel roads leading to the property from Highways 264 and 265. Maintained gravel roads ring the Playa. Power is available approximately 9 miles (15 km) from the property and the village of Dyer is approximately 12 miles (20 kms) to the south and the town of Tonopah, Nevada is approximately 46 miles (75 km) to the East. Near surface brine sampling in April/May 2011 encountered lithium/boron enriched brines where the best result was 140mg/L lithium. In addition to these strongly anomalous lithium values, boron is also elevated with the highest value to date of 2500 mg/L., and Potassium is also enriched, with the best result being 7200 mg/L. The highest values appear to be confined to an area approximately one-half mile square that is within a larger zone of moderate to highly anomalous lithium and boron, which is 1 ½ miles long by 1 mile wide. Wet ground conditions precluded drilling the prospect in 2011, however the Company did manage to conduct a short drill program here in the Fall of 2012.
