Millennial Lithium (ML.V), the newest kid on the Lithium block, has announced it’s planning to start a surface sampling program at its Lincoln Lithium project in Big Smoky Valley in Nevada. The company’s claims are located right next to the claims owned by Ultra Lithium, and back in the 70’s, the USGS has already drilled a few holes in the Big Smoky Valley, which returned anomalous levels of lithium. Ultra Lithium ( ULI.V) has recently released some preliminary assay results from the first drill hole on its property and with a lithium grade of up to 270 ppm, the Big Smoky valley confirms its status as a potential future source of lithium.
The company has also completed a C$1.2M private placement priced at C$0.15 per unit, with each unit consisting of one common share and one warrant, exercisable at C$0.30 for two years.
The surface exploration program in Nevada is positive news, but we think there’s more going on behind the scenes. After all, when Redhill Resources (RHR.V) announced the name change to Millennial Lithium, it included this interesting sentence in its press release:
‘The Property that is the subject of the Agreement is not expected to be the Company’s primary focus for the next year. ‘
This basically means Millennial Lithium has something else in the pipeline, and given the excellent relationships the company’s management team has in Argentina, we would dare to bet Millennial will acquire a salar-project in Argentina as its flagship lithium project.
