The 100% owned El Quemado Project is a large-scale area play consisting of almost 8,000 hectares covering ground prospective for rare earth minerals and lithium pegmatites.
The property was mined sporadically between 1943 and 1981. This small-scale mining was focused on tantalum, niobium and bismuth production. With the world-focus on battery metals, the lithium potential is of most interest. Latin Metals completed surface exploration, mapping and sampling from 2016 through to 2017, identifying a number of lithium-bearing areas. The Company is now seeking a partner to fund exploration over this very large property and to fully assess the lithium potential.
