Western Lithium USA Corporation (TSX:WLC,OTCQX:WLCDF) announced it has submitted the Kings Valley Clay Mine Plan application.
As quoted in the press release:
The BLM and NDEP have both acknowledged receipt and have started their review and approval process for the project. Agency approvals are expected in the first quarter of 2014, based on a 16 to 18 month review process that takes into account the extensive baseline surveys that Western Lithium has already performed for the property.
Western Lithium is investigating the establishment of the Kings Valley Clay Project as an open-pit near surface hectorite clay mine with associated facilities. It is envisioned that raw clay will be shipped directly from the mine site to a clay processing facility located in the United States or to an international facility.
