SCOTCH CREEK INITIATE ADDITIONAL GEOPHYSICS PROGRAM ON ITS HIGHLANDS WEST PROJECT
VANCOUVER, BC – March 2nd, 2022 – Scotch Creek Ventures Inc. (the “Company”) (CSE: SCV) (FSE: 7S2) (OTC: SCVFF) (“Scotch Creek” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce the commencement of a gravity survey on its Highlands West lithium project in Clayton Valley, Nevada. Scotch Creek has retained Tom Carpenter, consulting geophysicist, to conduct the gravity survey at Highlands West.
The gravity survey will be carried out to map subsurface density contrasts caused by geological structures on a portion of Scotch Creek’s 5,960-acre Highlands West project which lays adjacent to Albemarle’s Silver Peak mine, the only lithium producing mine in the United States.
Scotch Creek Geologist, Mr. Robert D. Marvin, commented, “Our Highlands West project is situated in a very strategic part of Clayton Valley. The gravity grid we are surveying right now on the project is designed to map deeper sections of the target Esmeralda Formation in Clayton Valley. The Esmeralda Formation is the key regional host rock for lithium brine and lithium rich claystone deposits. There is abundant mapped evidence of important fault systems in the Valley. In addition to the gravity work, a detailed seismic survey is planned for Highlands this spring to map these faults beneath gravel cover, to better understand the projects subsurface geology.”
Previously completed geophysics on Highlands West project include a hybrid source audio magnetotellurics (HSAMT) which the survey results outlined three high-priority drill hole targets located as follows:
- At or near station 2102 to a depth of approximately 600 meters
- At or near station 2205 to a depth of approximately 600 meters
- At or near station 2303 to a depth of approximately 400 meters.
