 Big Sandy Lithium Project:

The Big Sandy lithium project, owned by Arizona Lithium (OTCQB: AZLAF) (ASX: AZL), boasts significant geological attributes, predominantly characterized by flat-lying basin sediments featuring analcime and potassic alteration zones. Notably, the green lacustrine lithium-bearing horizon stretches over an impressive 11 kilometers from north to south, forming a near-surface, extensive flat sheet that extend sat least 2 kilometers to the east.

In February 2019, Arizona Lithium (OTCQB: AZLAF) (ASX: AZL) commenced a fully funded 37-hole diamond drilling program at the Big Sandy project, yielding exceptional results and high-grade intercepts. Notably, the program achieved a peak lithium value of4,380 parts per million (ppm) to date.

The company announced a Mineral Resource estimate at the Big Sandy Lithium project:

  1. Total Indicated and Inferred Resources amount to 32.5 million tonnes (Mt) with a grade of 1,850 ppm Li or 320,800 tonnes of Lithium Carbonate Equivalent (LCE)at a cut-off of 800 ppm Li.
  2. The Resource also incorporates a higher-grade zone, encompassing 12.7 Mt grading2,360 ppm Li above a cut-off of 2,000 ppm Li, representing 159,500 tonnes of LCE or 49% of the total contained LCE.

Situated on 331 Bureau of Land Management (BLM) claims in Arizona, covering approximately 25 square kilometers, the Big Sandy lithium project holds strategic significance. The development of lithium projects aligns with the priority given to critical minerals by Federal U.S. agencies, following the Executive Order 'Federal Strategy to Ensure Secure and Reliable Supplies of Critical Minerals' signed on December 20, 2017. Moreover, the project's proximity to the Tesla Gigafactory, located approximately 960 kilometers to the northwest via sealed interstate highway, further enhances its strategic relevance.

Arizona Lithium's Big Sandy lithium project showcases significant lithium potential, supported by robust drilling results and a substantial Mineral Resource estimate. With its prime location and alignment with critical minerals strategies, the project stands as a promising venture for the company, poised to contribute to the growing lithium demand in a positive and sustainable manner.

Multi-Million Ton Prairie Lithium Project:

Arizona Lithium(OTCQB: AZLAF) (ASX: AZL)recently completed the acquisition of Prairie Lithium, which boasts Canada’s Highest quality brine resources, sitting at 4.1Mt @ 111mg/L Li. The project is targeting the Dupe row Formation in Saskatchewan, Canada which is consistently ranked as one of the world’s top mining friendly jurisdictions. The project has easy access to key infrastructure including electricity, natural gas, freshwater, paved highways, and railroads. The project also aims to have strong environmental credentials which should result in less use of freshwater, land, and waste, aligning with AZLAF sustainable approach to lithium development.


With its strong market position, high-growth potential, experienced leadership, and commitment to delivering two robust potential lithium mines, Arizona Lithium is positioned to thrive in the expanding lithium market.

As further work is completed, the future potential is set to be unlocked at Big Sandy, which currently has an exploration potential between 271.1Mt to 483.15Mt at 1,000 ->2,000ppm Lithium, ranking it as one of the largest lithium projects in North America.
