Our unwavering focus is on exploring and advancing premium-grade battery metals deposits that will drive the transition towards a sustainable future. In our portfolio lies the Clayton Valley Lithium project, which holds a pivotal role, as Lithium forms a critical element in the creation of electric vehicle batteries and energy storage systems.
Our claims in Clayton Valley are bordering the Silver Peak Lithium Project of Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB), home to the only producing lithium mine in North America.
Clayton Valley’s lithium is contained in both underground reservoirs (aquifers) in the form of salty groundwater (brine) and montmorillonite clays that features high levels of lithium.
Grid Battery Metals is focused on locating commercially important groundwater deposits enriched in dissolved lithium on their Clayton Valley project at Silver Peak, near Tonopah, Nevada.
A similar graben structure has been identified on the property of Grid Battery Metals in the north part of the Clayton Valley basin where the Goat Island graben is inferred from gravity inversion (Quantec, 2008; Petrick, 2008). The valley is segmented into a northerly-trending, 1-2 km-wide sub-basin with a distinct escarpment on each side caused by the displacement of a block of land downward.
Within the graben and within the boundary of the claim block, a drill hole by Western Geothermal Partners 2007 logged as WGP#2 reported as follows: “From 280 – to 305 ft., fine grained green sand and silt logged as volcanic ash was encountered. This unit may be correlative to the Main Ash Aquifer, which is a marker bed in other areas of the Clayton Valley Basin.”
Ranked the 3rd best mining jurisdiction in the world in 2019 by the Fraser Institute, Nevada is ideally suited to supply domestic and Asian markets.
