Dajin Reports Encouraging Lithium Results from Teels Marsh, Nevada

Press Releases  |

December 1, 2015 /  Vancouver, BC - Dajin Resources Corp. (“Dajin”) ($DJI:CA) ($DJIFF) (Frankfurt: A1XF20) is pleased to  report results from a small-scale “Geoprobe” sampling program at Teels Marsh, located in Mineral County, Nevada.  Conducting shallow surface sampling to assess the distribution of Lithium over the playa provides the necessary information required in order to prioritize areas for deep drill testing. High Lithium concentrations in sediments are favourable for the presence of Lithium bearing brines in a closed basin.

Geoprobe surveys are capable of probing to a depth of 200 feet (60 meters) under good conditions.  In the latest program, access to the marsh was limited by soft and wet ground conditions over most of the marsh.   As a result only eight locations, from the north east sector of the marsh, could be accessed by the truck mounted equipment. Analysis of recovered sediments was encouraging with values ranging up to 310 ppm Lithium and 8,600 ppm Boron and demonstrate an area in the north east contains sediments high in Lithium.  Sediment analysis was carried out by Western Environmental Testing Laboratories (Wetlabs), Sparks, Nevada.  These results, combined with earlier auger results show that a large area of the shallow subsurface of the marsh contain high levels of Lithium (Click here to see explanatory figures posted to the website).

Lithium concentrations are likely in the form of clays including Smectite (possibly with Hectorite, a Lithium bearing clay) and Searlesite (a Sodium Boron Lithium bearing mineral).  This investigation was carried out by the Geothermal Research Group, University of Utah in Salt Lake City.

A site visit will take place shortly with the aim of reviewing future exploration work.  In addition, Dajin has expanded its holdings at Teels by an additional 65 claims thereby increasing its land position to 215 claims covering 4,574 acres (1,851 hectares).

The technical information in this press release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements of National Instrument 43-101 and has been reviewed and approved on behalf of Dajin by Dr. Catherine Hickson, P.Geo, a qualified person.

Dajin is an early stage energy metals exploration company holding a 100% interest in 215 placer claims known to contain lithium and boron values in the Teels Marsh region of Mineral County, Nevada. These claims, which cover 4,574 acres (1,851 hectares), was the birth place of US Borax Corp’s first borax mine. Dajin also hold a 100% interest in 191 placer claims covering 3,851 acres (1,558 hectares) in Alkali Lake region of Esmeralda County, Nevada, 12 kilometers (7 miles) northeast of Rockwood’s Clayton Valley Lithium operations.

Dajin also holds a 100% interest in concessions or concession applications in Jujuy Province, Argentina that were acquired in regions known to contain brines with potassium, lithium and boron values.  These concessions total approximately 100,000 hectares (247,000 acres) with 80,248 hectares (198,000 acres) located in the Salinas Grandes/Guayatayoc salt lakes basin adjacent  to concessions held by Orocobre Limited (ORL-T: TSX), who is partnered with Toyota Tsusho.  Dajin recently completed an agreement with the Tres Morres community for exploration of the 4,400 hectare (10,873 acres) San Jose and Navidad concessions within the Salinas Grande salar.
