Project: Kings Valley, Nevada
Western Lithium's Kings Valley Lithium Project is located in Humboldt County in northern Nevada, approximately 100 km north-northwest of Winnemucca and 40 km west-northwest of Orovada, Nevada. The area is sparsely populated ranching land and covers approximately 40,000 acres. Access to the project is via paved road (U.S. Highway 95) north from Winnemucca to Orovada and then west on paved state highway 293 to the project area. Local access is via numerous gravel and dirt roads.
Western Lithium USA Corporation – Kings Valley Project, Nevada
Nevada is uniquely positioned to support the world-wide increase in renewable energy production and demand for electric vehicles through lithium mining – the key ingredient to the high-performance batteries, which will power electric vehicles and be used in utility-scale energy storage projects. While wind, solar and geothermal are most often identified as the region’s green resources, the role of the Silver State’s mineral assets, such as lithium, is often overlooked. The Department of Energy estimates that U.S. demand for lithium batteries will increase significantly over the next 20 years, reducing the U.S.’s foreign oil consumption and carbon emissions. As lithium demand increases, Nevada’s founding industry – mining – is primed to carry the state and the country into the future.
Western Lithium USA Corporation
Western Lithium USA Corporation, with offices in Reno, Nevada, and Vancouver, British Columbia, is poised to become the North American leader in the production and supply of lithium. Founded in July 2008, the company is headed by an experienced group of mine builders, engineers and investors. With an infrastructure and support system already in place in Northern Nevada, Western Lithium has a prime advantage in the production of one of the world's largest known deposits of lithium.
