Anson Resources (ASX:ASN) has confirmed the site for a proposed processing plant at its Green River lithium project in the Paradox Basin of Utah, USA.
This development marks another significant step forward in the project’s progress, following a comprehensive geotechnical engineering study.
The engineering study was conducted by independent engineering and geological consultants as part of Anson’s due diligence process after acquiring an industrial land package at Green River.
Importantly, the majority of the site consists of alluvial deposits resting on layers of gravel and cobbles, with no anticipated groundwater issues affecting construction.
The study included nine boreholes and five trenches, with bedrock encountered at depths ranging from 0.76 metres to approximately 4.27 metres.
Core samples were taken to a depth of approximately 21.34 metres, and soil samples, as well as field resistivity measurements, were collected.
The boreholes were initially drilled using a seven-inch diameter hollow-stem auger and subsequently cored to their final depths.
Standard penetration tests (SPT) were performed on the core samples, followed by laboratory testing.
Geotechnical laboratory tests included evaluations of grain size distribution, Atterberg limits, 1D consolidation, unconfined compression, water-soluble chloride and sulphate concentration, electrical resistivity, and pH.
