Lancaster Resources CEO Jason Swly recently presented an update on the Alkali Flat lithium brine project. Located in Nevada, the project is the company’s largest resource development. The project encompasses over 3,000 acres of mineral rights and is expected to bring many economic benefits to the state.
The CEO ‘s presentation discussed the current status of the Alkali project, as well as future plans. At the moment, the project is in the development stage, with seismic lines being laid out and field survey being completed. Once the survey is finished, engineering studies will begin, which will ultimately determine feasibility of the project.
In addition to the development work, Lancaster is currently conducting regional exploration and evaluation to locate areas with higher concentrations of lithium. With this data, the company will be able to create more efficient and cost-effective mining methods.
Once the Alkali Flat project is operational, Lancaster expects to employ 500 people to run the mine. Job opportunities will range from geologists to legal experts and skilled laborers, all of whom will be provided with extensive training and opportunities for career growth.
Lancaster also stressed the importance of environmental safety. The company has established a baseline for monitoring air and water quality with the use of on-site technicians and independent third-party evaluations. In addition, Lancaster is implementing solar energy and water recycling methods to reduce water consumption and minimize the mine’s carbon footprint.
Jason Swly concluded his update by expressing his confidence that the Alkali Flat project will be a major benefit to the local community and the state of Nevada. With its robust development and environmental safeguards, the project is sure to bring many economic advantages to the region, from increased job opportunities to industrial growth.
