Anson Resources Ltd has three projects, located in Australia and the USA.
The Paradox Brine Project
The company’s flagship asset is located in the Paradox Basin, Grand County, Utah. The project consists of 1,317 placer claims covering 11,373 hectares – 89 claims in which Anson holds a 50% interest and can earn up to 70% in phase 2 of the program, with the option to then acquire the remaining interest; and 1,228 claims staked by Anson. During the 1960s, numerous oil wells were drilled in the region and encountered over-pressurised brines in a unit of the Pennsylvanian Paradox Formation named the Clastic Zone 31. Most wells were not analysed for lithium, but two holes which the recently pegged claims surround (Robert’s Well and Long Canyon No.1) were tested for lithium. These tests showed a maximum lithium value of 1,700ppm and 500ppm Li respectively, noting that the higher lithium values were reported close to the Robert’s Rupture geological formation which runs through the Project claims. In addition, bromine, boron and iodine were found to be in high concentrations. Learn more about the Paradox Brine Project here. Learn more about the Paradox Brine Project here.
The Ajana Graphite Project (100%-owned)
The Ajana Project is located in Northampton, Western Australia, a proven and established mining province for zinc, lead, silver and graphite, the Ajana Project is adjacent to the North West Coast Highway and 130km north of Geraldton. The prospective ground on the 222sq km of granted tenements E66/89, E66/94 and E66/100 (under application), contain areas of graphitic schist mineralization.
An historic lead resource has been upgraded to a global resources (according to JORC 2012 regulations) at the Mary Springs Prospect. Learn more about the Ajana Graphite Project here.
The Hooley Wells Nickel-Cobalt Laterite Project (100%-owned)
The Hooley Wells Nickel-Cobalt Laterite project is located 800km north of Perth and 300km east of Geraldton in Western Australia. Tenements E9/2218 and E9/2219 contain historical shallow drilling which has intersected nickel and cobalt laterites. Learn more about the Hooley Wells Nickel-Cobalt Laterite Project here.
