Lithium South Launches Expanded Drilling Program at Hombre Muerto North Project

Lithium South Development Corporation (TSX-V: LIS) (OTCQB: LISMF) (Frankfurt: OGPQ) announces a significant expansion of its production well drilling program at its flagship Hombre Muerto North Lithium Project (HMN Li Project), focusing on the Alba Sabrina claim. This initiative is set to enhance operational capacity and support the global energy transition.

Lithium South’s Drilling Program Expansion

Lithium South has successfully cleared Well PW23-AS-02 of sediment, enabling clear brine flow with strong artesian characteristics. This breakthrough allows for the introduction of an 80-kilowatt pump, upscaling from the initial 50-kilowatt plan, to maximize brine extraction rates. Adrian F. C. Hobkirk, President and CEO, highlights the potential operational benefits and contributions to the energy sector.

In light of these successes, the company has significantly extended its well installation efforts. This includes a new well at the Alba Sabrina block, extending up to 400 meters, and three additional wells across the Norma Edith and Viamonte blocks, in collaboration with POSCO for a 50/50 brine share.

Environmental Commitment and Project Development

The team is finalizing the biannual Environmental Impact Report, which integrates the new drilling activities, set for submission by April’s end. This reflects Lithium South’s strategy and commitment to responsible development.

Lithium South stands at the forefront of lithium development within the Salar del Hombre Muerto, surrounded by significant industry peers and ongoing projects, poised for a transition from exploration to development.
