Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 11, 2017) – Alset Minerals Corp. (TSXV: ION) (“Alset” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce it has acquired 5 additional salars bringing the total to 12 salars in Mexico. Alset now has a major land position in a new province of highly prospective salars that were identified in the 1980s by the Servicio Geologico Mexicana (SGM) when they declared the region including the states of Zacatecas and San Luis Potosi, Mexico as having the highest priority for lithium.
Both lithium and potassium, have been found in Alset’s original salars, as well as other minerals such as boron that are important for fertilizers. Much like other salars throughout the world, lithium and potassium and other minerals are found to co-exist in both the brines and in the soils. This is somewhat unique in the mining sector as these mineral occurrences essentially outcrop across the entire salar.
