Alberta II (Galicia)

image
  • Project Name : Alberta II
  • Project Location : Galicia
  • Project Country : Spain
  • Date Acquired : October 2018
  • Commodity : Lithium

Project Overview

The Alberta II project consists of a 1,015 hectare mineral exploitation contract. Utilizing the European Datum 1950, the mineral contract forms a polygon centered at about 8°17'43"N and 42°12'50"W, or alternatively, UTM Zone 29 Northern Hemisphere, 557,962 east, 4,696,112 north. Geographically, the mineral contract is located within the Municipality of Avion, Province of Galicia, country of Spain, some 440 kilometers WNW of the Spanish capital of Madrid and 55 kilometers to the south east of Santiago de Compostela, the capital of the Province of Galicia.
  • Project Highlights
  • Project Sample Data
  • From The CEO
  • The Alberta II project covers a rare type of geological formation referred to as an albite, spodumene, tantalum, tin bearing rare element pegmatite of the lithium-tantalum-cesium (LCT) rare element pegmatite class (Cerny, 1989). This type of pegmatite is one of the worlds’ most important sources of tantalum and an important source of tin, lithium, cesium, rubidium and niobium and may include kaolin as well as other rare minerals.
  • Alberta II is located in the province of Orense in the Galicia Region of northwestern Spain.
  • The project area is located in the Forcarei Sur pegmatite field.
  • The project area covers 1,015 hectares and its perimeter has been surveyed. The project area is bound on the north by the Alberta I property.
  • A total of 10 rare earth pegmatite dikes have been mapped and identified through surface exposure mapping.
  • The mapped dikes are classified as LCT pegmatite dikes. Significant Tantalum, Tin, Lithium, Cesium and Rubidium assays have been identified in each mapped dike.

During the 2010 drill program core samples were collected and were all sent to ALS Laboratory Group’s preparation lab in Seville Spain and the pulps were then forwarded to Vancouver where they were analyzed for ore grade elements by ICP, and trace elements by XRF.

The sample is logged in the tracking system, weighed, dried and finely crushed to better than 70% passing a 2 mm (Tyler 9 mesh, US Std. No.10) screen. A split of up to 1000 g is taken using a Boyd rotary splitter and pulverized to better than 85 % passing a 75 micron (Tyler 200 mesh, US Std. No. 200) screen.

The samples were prepared by digesting with nitric, perchloric, hydrofluoric, and hydrochloric acids, and then evaporated to incipient dryness. Hydrochloric acid and de-ionized water is added for further digestion, and the sample is heated for an additional allotted time. The sample is cooled to room temperature and transferred to a volumetric flask (100 mL). The resulting solution is diluted to volume with de-ionized water, homogenized and the solution is analyzed by inductively coupled plasma - atomic emission spectroscopy or by atomic absorption spectrometry.

"The acquisition of Iberian Lithium and its Alberta II lithium property, having an exclusive right to apply for a mining concession, represents a significant asset for the Company. The Alberta II property greatly enhances the Company’s potential for rapid development of a significant lithium – and associated tin and tantalum – resource. Iberian is very fortunate to have secured a contract with the highly qualified Salamanca Ingenieros team and their associated professional contractors.

The positive results from their latest report on Alberta II, undertaken over this year, has found numerous geophysical, geochemical anomalies suggestive of additional anomalous lithium occurrences in addition to those discussed in the earlier NI 43-101. These results along with geological support, as expressed by the author of the latest report, are more than enough to support the planning of another drilling campaign."
