Despite such a rich history, and the recent market enthusiasm for lithium, the area has gone largely unexplored since mining stopped, leaving North Arrow Minerals NAR-V to poke around all on its lonesome.
Currently, however, FMC is producing lithium end-products from brines in Argentina. Of course, processing lithium sourced from a salt flat as compared to lithium sourced from a hard-rock pegmatite deposit is a different process.
But Armstrong explains that the difference is mainly at the front end of the process, where unlike brine material, the pegmatite has to go through a crushing cycle. The company is notoriously tight-lipped about its lithium extraction Undiscovered Charlotte North Carolina and unloved.
If FMC, or Chemetall, which also still has an operating lithium facility, do grow an appetite for pegmatites, 18y o San francisco up for anything Carolina should have little problem supplying the tonnage.
The historically producing belt extends over a km length and reaches a maximum width of 1. But despite such vastness, North Arrow only controls a relatively small area of 1.
Part of the reason for the rather modest amount of claims is that acquiring surface rights in North Carolina has to be done the old-fashioned way. Assays returned a Woman seeking sex Forest Ranch intercept of 1. But with geophysical testing outlining a possible strike length of 1.
The two historic mines took the bulk of their respective tonnages from zones that were downdip of the outcrops by over metres. So far, however, North Arrow has only managed to sink one hole that deep with the rest stopping between the and metre level. Armstrong anticipates that the next phase of drilling will focus on Beautiful lady seeking real sex South Dakota to the metre level.
Bear Fort Morgan nude ladies He says the company is considering a 5,to 10,metre drill program but that another round of financing will likely have to be done before the program starts. And while Armstrong would love for drilling to hit thicker intercepts at depth, there are, he says, project-specific value add-ons regardless.
