VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Mar 28, 2017) – One World Minerals Inc. (CSE:OWM) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the start of a second phase exploration program on the Company’s Rico Litio lithium property located in the State of California Baja Norte, Mexico. Logistical preparations are underway with field crews on the property within three weeks and concluding with a 4000 metre (13,000 foot) drill program to be completed by the end of June 2017.
The second phase program will consist of 80 kilometres (50 miles) of surveyed grid lines in the northern portion of the property in preparation to complete a time domain electromagnetic survey. This survey will help to identify sediment formations with good permeability and porosity that may contain lithium brines. In addition, a gravity survey will be conducted over the same grid lines to identify the depths of the closed basin as well as structural features and young volcanic rocks that may contribute to the formation of the lithium brine. Historically these geophysical surveys have worked extremely well in identifying structural targets in preparation for drilling.
