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.

Tesla Motors, which in September of 2015 signed an off-take agreement with Pure Energy, is driving the current lithium boom in Nevada. Tesla is building a lithium-ion battery factory, called Gigafactory, just outside of Sparks, Nevada, which is scheduled to be operational in 2016/17. read more...


May 2016: The Company completed 15 shallow auger holes to test salt and clay layers for lithium and other commercial elements. Assays are expected in the near term.

Lithium is a scarce and technologically important element produced primarily from brines and pegmatites. Although it is a non-renewable resource, it is used in conjunction with renewable energy technologies and hybrid automobiles, primarily in the form of Li-ion batteries, currently the most used form of batteries in many electronics. The consumption of lithium carbonate is on the rise and so far global production has kept pace with demand.

Located in the Basin and Range Province in southern Nevada, the Big Smoky Valley, which is approximately 3km wide and 14km long, is an internally drained, fault bounded and closed basin. Geological modelling suggests that lithium-rich brines have transported and deposited in the both the Clayton and Big Smoky valleys since the Pleistocene era. The primary exploration model is to identify and map basins with ground gravity surveys and evaluate the chemistry of salts and sediments therein with DWRC or rotary-mud drilling. In the later stages of exploration, downhole geophysics and seismic reflection surveys are also utilized to define lithium bearing aquifers.
