The company's been granted its final two tenements totalling 7,050 hectares, which expand the now 76,700 hectare Catamarca lithium project.
Gale says: ''Back nearly six months ago we went out looking for Lithium projects in South America. We've been in South America now for seven years mainly focused on Peru''.
''Catamarca is well advanced - we now have the mining and environmental permits in place ... we expect those approvals shortly and we're very excited because we're going to start drilling within the next few weeks - hopefully in December.''
Gale adds: ''We're very, very focused - we've just brought on board a new exploration development manager. It's exciting, we've got a good team and hopefully we can start looking at production in the next year or so.''
