Pure Energy executed the most comprehensive seismic program ever conducted in Clayton Valley which resulted in an unprecedented view into the basin underlying our claim area.
Preliminary Seismic Data Reveals Mineralized Zone Extends Throughout Claim Area

Pure Energy invested significant resources into completing a very comprehensive seismic reflection survey spanning a large portion of Clayton Valley.  The purpose of the seismic work is to get a view deep into the basin to illustrate the depth and areal extent of mineralized zones that potentially contain lithium resources.  When coupled with our intrusive work (i.e. drilling), and other geophysics data (such as downhole geophysics and gravity data) we are able to assemble a geologic model of the basin.  This will identify the potential size of mineralized zones, which is critical to calculating the inferred resource potential and future drill targets.  High quality data is clearly of value, and Pure Energy took the 'cadillac' approach - 600 data collection sites and nearly 20 kms of seismic transects.  Over 1 terabyte of data was collected, analyzed and interpreted.

The initial results are very positive, demonstrating that the mineralized zone intersected in Pure Energy's recent drilling campaign extends throughout Pure Energy's entire claim area, from the existing Silver Peak lithium operations southwards to include the new lithium placer claims recently acquired by Pure Energy.  In addition, the mineralized zone appears to extend deeper than the base of the existing and historical exploration boreholes and maintains this thickness throughout the entire basin.  These findings will be incorporated into the forthcoming Inferred Resource Assessment Report (NI 43-101 complaint).

The recent exploration program prompted Pure Energy to expand its place mineral claim area from 4,500 acres to over 8,000 acres.

Pure Energy Expands Clayton Valley Claim Area by 80% to Over 8,000 Acres

Pure Energy recently expanded its initial claim area by over 3,500 acres to secure areas of interest highlighted by the recent exploration work.  Pure Energy's wholly owned US subsidiary, Esmeralda Minerals LLC,  secured 963 acres of lithium placer mining claims, while the remaining 2,542 acres of lithium placer claims were acquired through a binding agreement with Nevada Alaska Minerals.  

Pure Energy's claims now total 8,037 acres, or an area approximately 10 km long by 2 km wide.  To provide a sense of scale, the area covered by wells at the Silver Peak lithium mine immediately to the north of Pure Energy's claim area cover approximately 2,300 acres.  

The claim extension was prompted by the recent exploration program.  The initial geophysics results indicated that an expansion of claim area eastward along the southern portion of our claim was warranted, illustrated in the figure above. 

These new claim areas will be included in future exploration plans as Pure Energy advances its development strategy towards developing a highly-valued lithium asset in the USA.

Why Lithium


Lithium chemical symbol = Li


A small soft silver-grey metal


The lightest metal in the periodic table


Li promises high operating voltage, low weight, and high energy-storage density


It's the perfect material for batteries—light and energetic

Lithium is a specialty industrial product bought and sold under contract, and the chemistry is specifically tailored to the customers needs. Supply contracts are useful towards predicting cash flow and securing project finance.

Although lithium is used in over 70 types of products, the growth in battery usage has driven lithium demand skyward. Electric vehicles and grid storage, such as Tesla’s Powerwall and Powerpack residential and commercial battery systems, are very high growth areas.

Demand is predicted to be as high as 125% of supply by 2020 driven by electric vehicles and grid storage.

The price of lithium has increased by 300% since 2003.

The development timelines of Pure Energy’s Clayton Valley Brine Project are aligned with the anticipated high-growth demand in lithium.

Lithium Supply & Demand

Driven by power storage demand (everything from power tools and handheld devices to electric vehicles), the global lithium industry should, we believe, enjoy a CAGR of roughly 12% through the end of the decade (starting in the mid/high single digits and accelerating afterwards as the EV market enjoys further penetration)”

“We estimate lithium consumption in 2013 was of the order of ~160k tonnes of LCE”

Supply will be short: There have been investor concerns about the supply side of the equation given a number of announced projects in the lithium industry. Upon a detailed review of the projects, we believe the risk is that demand will actually outstrip supply as we approach the later part of the decade, with demand potentially as high as 125% of total capacity”

Energy Storage

The most important use of lithium is in rechargeable batteries for electric vehicles, energy grid storage, mobile phones, laptops, digital cameras and other small electronic devices. Lithium is also used in some non-rechargeable batteries.

Lithium Alloys

Lithium metal is combined with aluminum and magnesium to form strong and lightweight alloys for armour plating, aircraft, trains and bicycles.

Optics, Glassware and Ceramics

Lithium is used to produce optics, glassware, and ceramics.


Lithium chloride is one of the most hygroscopic materials known, and is used in air conditioning and industrial drying systems.


Lithium stearate is used as an all-purpose and high-temperature lubricant.


Lithium carbonate is used in medications to effectively treat manic depression.

Lithium Market

Lithium hydroxide and lithium carbonate are both consumed in battery cathodes. The high energy content and light molecular weight of lithium makes it an ideal energy source for transportation.

Lithium Market – Source

Economically accessible sources of lithium are relatively rare, and commercial production comes from brine and rock.

Lithium-enriched brine is the most cost-effective form of lithium production and is responsible for most of the global production. Under specific climatic and geologic conditions lithium can be concentrated naturally in very salty water referred to as brine. This process is relatively rare, and the predominant theory suggests that volcanic lithium-rich ash is deposited, entrained into water by solution, and forms a lake in low-elevation desert depressions where evaporation exceeds precipitation. Over time, water is evaporated and the salts, including lithium, are concentrated and eventually infiltrate into the ground. Brines can be twice as salty as seawater, and under certain geologic conditions, can be contained underground by impermeable rock effectively forming a bathtub-like feature. These features can be a prolific source of accessible and concentrated lithium, and are known to be found in Nevada, Atacama (Chile, Bolivia and Argentina), and Tibet.

Hard Rock
Before 1997 lithium production was predominantly hardrock-sourced from the USA, Russia, Chile, Australia, China, Zimbabwe and Canada. However during 1997 Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (“SQM”) began processing lithium product from continental brines in the Salara de Atacama region. The lower cost and larger volume of production of this brine-sourced lithium changed the shape of the industry, thus forcing the closure of many high-cost rock operations. The Greenbushes mine in Austrailia is the only significant lithium hard rock mine in the world, unique due to the highly enriched lithium mineralization.
