In One of North America’s Most Impressive Lithium Hotspots, Ameriwest Lithium May Have Just Unearthed A Colossal Discovery

The Top 5 Potential Catalysts That Could Fuel Ameriwest Lithium Canada CSE: (AWLI) U.S. OTC: (AWLIF)
The world is running into a problematic supply-demand situation with lithium.
All thanks to electric vehicle (EV) sales that are growing much faster than anyone expected.
In fact, at this current pace, by 2030, the world could see 125 million EVs on the road, only driving further demand for lithium supply.(1) In fact, according to Resource World, “It is anticipated demand for vehicle battery metal will increase sharply over the next several years as automakers abandon internal combustion engines for EVs.”(2)
Unfortunately, we just don’t have enough lithium supply for that to happen – at least not yet.
Even the International Energy Agency just warned:
- Today’s lithium market is roughly 350,000 tons. It’s forecast to grow to approximately one million tons by 2025. The capital to feed this growth in the supply chain needs to be raised and invested today — not in two or three years.
- Decarbonization has become the polarizing trend of 2021.
- The key to Energy Transition: security of supply of raw materials, in particular high-purity lithium.
- The market is scrambling to identify quality lithium resources as governments aim to develop homegrown lithium supply chains and develop subsidy programs.
That’s where a company like Ameriwest Lithium Canada CSE: (AWLI) U.S. OTC: (AWLIF) could play a critical role. Especially when you consider its robust operations in Nevada- arguably the hottest North American jurisdiction for lithium exploration.(5)
Ameriwest boasts two strong properties. First is the Deer Musk East Lithium Project in Clayton Valley, Nevada, located five miles east of Albemarle’s Silver Peak Project. The other is the Railroad Valley Project, which the company believes could be the next Clayton Valley.(5)
After breaking from consolidation at around 20 cents in early January 2021, the Ameriwest Lithium stock exploded to a peak of about $1.22 reached August 9, 2021. That was good for an eye-popping move of approximately 510%. While the stock has since pulled back to about 78 cents as of August 16, 2021, there may still be plenty of room to run here.
Why could this stock see a sharp recovery?
For one, there’s a significant amount of lithium demand.
Additionally, as compared to its competing neighbors, Ameriwest Lithium may be significantly undervalued.
Ameriwest Lithium Canada CSE: (AWLI) U.S. OTC: (AWLIF) focuses on unlocking value in a world shifting towards green energy solutions that run off lithium-based batteries. Its mission is to become a leader in exploring and developing world-class lithium and battery metal mining assets.
What really makes this company stand out is its operations in Nevada – arguably the hottest North American jurisdiction for lithium exploration.
Look at its Deer Musk East (DME) Lithium Project in Clayton Valley, Nevada, consisting of 283 claims spanning about 5,618 acres.(7)
Within that area:(7)
- Albemarle’s Silver Peak is functioning as North America’s only lithium-producing mine. Ameriwest’s property is located just 5 miles east of this property.
- Cypress Development Corp. recently completed a pre-feasibility study with a significant established resource estimate.
- Noram Ventures Inc. announced a resource of 300 million tons of >900 ppm Li. The current drilling program is on track to more than double that resource.
- Pure Energy minerals recently entered into an agreement for lithium brine production.
Additionally, Ameriwest Lithium noted recently that the Deer Musk East Property consists of 283 unpatented placer claims, encompassing a total area of 2,274 ha (5,618 acres) of public land in southern Clayton Valley, Nevada, USA. According to a draft National Instrument 43-101 technical report being prepared for the company, this property can potentially host both lithium brine and lithium sedimentary deposits, subject to exploration success.(A)
At the moment, Clayton Valley is host to the only commercially producing lithium project in North America, Albemarle’s Silver Peak brine evaporation project, as noted by Lithium X. Lithium X further stated that:(8)
Ameriwest Lithium believes that its Railroad Valley Project may be the next Clayton Valley. For one, Ameriwest’s Railroad project encompasses 6,240 acres for a total of 312 placer claims. It is also located within the vicinity of Township 5 North, Range 55 East.(9)
Several favorable factors for lithium brine formation could also be within the project area, such as a deep hydrological reservoir covered by an evaporative playa. Railroad Valley also offers robust historical exploration data due to substantial efforts for oil and gas exploration.(9)
Most importantly, the Railroad Valley Basin is a Green-Fields Lithium Target Believed to be similar to Clayton Valley, just 200 KM to the West-Southwest.(9)
Although Railroad Valley is geologically similar to nearby Clayton Valley in many ways, there’s a huge difference. Railroad Valley represents a new and virtually unexplored target, with only a handful of companies present. In contrast, Clayton Valley’s leases are fragmented across multiple competing companies.(9)
When evaluating the potential for any lithium profile, it’s essential to examine the quality of the company’s management.
