Scotch Creek Ventures Inc. (CSE: SCV) (OTC: SCVFF) today announced that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) granted a drill permit for the company’s Macallan East lithium project in Clayton Valley, Nevada.

Three Lithium Targets

Additionally, Scotch Creek has identified three high-priority lithium drill targets within the Macallan East project, which borders multiple known lithium resources. The company had previously announced plans to initiate a drill program totaling over 19,000 feet to further explore its 3,180-acre project in Clayton Valley.

“Clayton Valley’s basin has collected, retained, and concentrated lithium into both mineral brines and claystone. The Macallan East Lithium Project is located along a key portion of the eastern margin of the basin. This eastern margin seems to be preferential for lithium concentrations in the Clayton Valley, based on adjacent projects. We are excited to begin our drill campaign in hopes of discovering America’s next considerable lithium resource.”
