Encompassed the 15km x 3  to 4km Los Patos channel.  The Rio Los Patos accounts for aprox. 79% of incoming waters into the salar which drain likely Li source rocks from the Cerro Galan volcano (associated fumaroles noted in the delta).

In January 2019, Galan accelerated work at its Candelas project conducting an eight dirll-hole campaign.  Drilling primarily in the northern zone of the project unearthed some stellar numbers including 192 metres at 802 mg/l Li with very low impurities levels.

Sediment package includes perfect permeable hosts; coarse sands/gravels, breccia and conglomerate.

SRK (Australia) who were overseeing resouce definition, QA/QC controls etc deemed that Candelas could be a potential world class deposit.

SRK Consulting (Argentina) said in an ASX release on 13 February 2019 – “Preliminary field measurements and laboratory analyses on brine suggests that the Candelas Project ha the potential to become a world-class soluble lithium deposit hosted in a unique geological setting”.

A Maiden, Candelas North JORC resource of 684,850 tonnes of contained lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) at 672 mg/l Li (based on a 500mg/l Li cut-off) was announced on 1 October 2019.

Candelas has suffice area for evaporation pods, processing infrastructure and has access to great, fresh process water.

Candelas:  a ∼15km long by 3-5km wide valley filled channel which project geophysics and drilling have indicated the potential to host a substantial volume of brine and over which a maiden resource  estimated 685kt LCE (Oct2019). Furthermore, Candelas has the potential to provide a substantial amount of processing water by treating its low-grade brines with reverse osmosis, this is without using surface river water from Los Patos River.
