In mid-December last year, Galan received permits to conduct the maiden drilling program at its Candelas Lithium Brine Project in the Hombre Muerto salar in Argentina.
Receiving the permits was a significant step forward for the company in Argentina.
At the time, field activities in preparation for drilling had already begun, with local contracts for drilling, camp establishment, operational health and safety, catering and technical assistance soon to be awarded.
The maiden drilling program will comprise five holes to be drilled over a 12-15-kilometre section of the Candelas channel.
An initial hole will aim to test Galan’s geophysical model and will provide detailed data on the stratigraphy within the Candelas channel to a depth of more than 400 metres.
The results from the initial hole will also assist in the planning of subsequent drilling.
