  • La Salada is located 80 km north-northwest of Zacatecas city, adjacent to the town of La Salada.
  • Of the Zacatecas-area salars, La Salada appears to have the highest average sediment-hosted lithium grade and is the first salar with confirmed high-potassium brines. Historical sediment sampling indicates potassium values ranging from 0.11% to 9.06% with an average value of 5.3%; and lithium values ranging from 25 to 2265 ppm with an average value of 880 ppm. As with Santa Clara, these historical values were obtained from pit sampling the salar on a 100-metre grid; the pits were sampled every vertical metre down to five metres to collect 711 samples.
  • Further to this, in 2016 the Company assayed a composite sample made up of 10 separate samples from this salar material; this composite sample returned a grade of 3.84% potassium and 1040 ppm lithium. The Company also carried out several leaching tests on this composite sample. The results of these leach tests from La Salada indicated a potassium recovery of 40% and a lithium recovery of 97% from the sediment samples.
