A.I.S. Resources Completes Geophysics at Salinitas, Salta, Argentina
Vancouver, British Columbia – A.I.S. Resources Limited (TSX: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF) (the “Company” or “AIS”) is pleased to announce completion of the previously announced Time Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) survey at the Salinitas lithium brine project (the “Project”) located in the Salinas Grande Salar in northwest Argentina. The TDEM geophysical survey was conducted across 52 stations at 500 meter spacings totaling approximately 26 kilometers. Data compilation is underway and interpretation is expected to begin shortly. Based on interpretation of the TDEM data, the Company is now preparing to carry out trenching as well as an auger drilling program to test for shallow, near surface brines that contain anomalous concentrations of lithium and other elements correlated with geophysics in preparation for definition of drill targets. The work is being supervised by Phillip Thomas Director of Exploration.
About the Salinitas Lithium Brine Project
The Salinitas tenements are located in the lithium triangle at the Salar de Salinas Grandes, in the Province of Salta. The 4,308 hectare land package resides in the Puna region of northwest Argentina near the border of Chile, an area renowned for its lithium- and potassium-rich brine resources. AIS has partnered with MGX Minerals (CSE: XMG) on the Project who is currently earning an undivided 80% interest by incurring total exploration expenditures of at least US$1.2 million by May 31, 2020 and by making payments totaling US$3.2 million which are primarily due at that time.
