Thacker Pass location and mineral resource model compared to the boundary of the 2018 resource model
Tuesday, October 12, 2021 1:00 AM
Lithium Americas Corp. has expanded its anticipated resource at Thacker Pass and increased phase one capacity to 40,000 tons per annum (TPA) lithium carbonate for the proposed project north of Winnemucca in the McDermitt Caldera in Humboldt County. 
The phase one capacity target increased from 30,000-35,000 tpa to reflect an optimized mine plan and leaching efficiencies without changing the proposed sulfuric acid plan or water usage amounts. 
  • Unexpected Connections
    Have you ever driven down a road you have driven down a million times before and then one day you recognize something new? 
    Then you find yourself asking, “has that always been there?”  You ask your car mate, and they reply, “yup, you’ve never noticed that before?”

  • Independent Poll: Non-major party voters place Sisolak behind Lombardo, neck-and-neck with Heller
    As the number of people registered with non-major parties outpaces those registering as either a Democrat or Republican, a new poll released Sunday by The Nevada Independent indicates the leanings of independent voters who will play a major role in determining the outcomes of tight gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races.
    Non-major party voters who were polled leaned slightly more Republican than Democrat, with 41.5 percent indicating they would be more likely to vote GOP in the November 2022 election compared with 38.1 percent more likely to vote for a Democrat.
    In match-ups between Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak and the two GOP gubernatorial frontrunners —  former U.S. Sen. Dean Heller and Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo — non-major party voters placed the governor even with Heller (42.3 percent to 42.1 percent) and about 5 points behind Lombardo (39.6 percent to 44.7 percent).
