Rare Earth Minerals has been informed by its joint venture partner Bacanora Mineral Ltd that additional concessions, contiguous with the existing Fleur and El-Sauz concessions the that contain the Fleur-El Sauz Lithium deposit in northern Mexico, have been staked and mineral rights secured.
The acreage under the Joint Venture has as a result been increased by approximately 60% from 3,305 hectares to 5,325 hectares.
The new total of 5,325 hectares of concessions, are the subject of a joint venture between Bacanora and REM, pursuant to which REM has given notice to increase its interest in the joint venture from 10% to 30% and has a first right of refusal to negotiate a deal to further increase its interest in the joint venture to 49.9%.
These new concessions cover strategic ground to the east and north of the Existing Concessions where it is believed that the Lithium-bearing clay units within the Existing Concessions identified by the stage 1 drilling programme may extend down-dip and eastward.
