VANCOUVER, April 2, 2013 /CNW/ - Pure Energy Minerals Limited (TSX VENTURE: PE) (the "Company" or "Pure Energy") is pleased provide the following update on recent events in Esmeralda County. Nevada. The Company's operator, GeoXplor Corp., has received a drilling permit and is initiating preparations to drill the first exploration well at the Alkali Flats lithium prospect. The Company's intent is to utilize this drill program as a first step towards a resource classification of the brine. Geophysical survey work has identified a closed basin and confirmed conductors that are thought to be representative of lithium bearing brine present in the basin.
Through recent staking, Pure Energy now holds the rights to acquire approximately 7000 acres in the Montezuma Valley adjacent to Clayton Valley. Clayton Valley is home to the Silver Peak Lithium mine owned by Rockwood Lithium, the only lithium brine producer in the United States.
