Iconic Announces Additional Expansion of Lithium Claims and Contracting of an MT Geophysical Survey
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 6, 2016 / Iconic Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: ICM) (FSE: YQG) announces that it has expanded its Bonnie Claire lithium project located in Nye County, Nevada (the “Property”) from 413 mining claims comprising 8,260 acres to 731 claims comprising 14,620 acres (23 mi(2)) (refer to News Release dated January 6, 2016). The additional claims cover portions of a gravity low that target potential overlie brine deposits, as well as mud flats suitable for building evaporation ponds.
Zonge International has been contracted to conduct a magnetotellurics (MT) geophysical survey over the gravity low. The survey will identify the depth and extent of highly conductive brine layers as well as structural and stratigraphic contacts. For further information regarding MT refer to the following link to Zonge’s website: http://zonge.com/geophysical-methods/electrical-em/amt-and-mt/
The following is a brief summary on the Property:
The Property is a lithium brine target. It is located within a valley that is over +20 miles (+30 km) long and 12 miles (20 km) wide into which streams from an +800 mi(2) (2,070 km(2)) drainage basin empty. The source rocks are quartz-rich volcanics that contain anomalous amounts of lithium. Sampling of salt flats within the basin indicate lithium values in salt samples ranging from 50 to 340 ppm. The deeper part of a gravity low within the valley is 12 miles (20 km) long, and initial estimates of the depth to bedrock ranges from 1,500 to 2,000 feet (460-610 m) within this low. The current claim block covers the gravity low and associated mud flats that could be used for evaporation ponds if significant lithium brines are discovered in drilling.
