MILLER'S CROSSING LITHIUM PROJECT
In the heart of the only lithium producing district in the United States
The Miller’s Crossing Lithium Project covers an area of 1,920 acres of placer claims, located in the Big Smoky Valley, Esmeralda County, Nevada. South of the Big Smokey Valley (BSV) is the Clayton Valley, which is home to Albemarle’s Silver Peak Operation which produces lithium from ancient salt beds and where Pure Energy has recently identified a NI43-101 inferred resource of 816,000 metric tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE)* at a cut-off of 20mg/L.
