Dark Horse has the option to acquire the final 5% stake for US$1.5 million or allow the owner to hold a 5% free-carried interest.

The company will immediately begin exploration with a surface sampling program to understand the salar's initial chemistry. A geophysics study, designed to define drilling targets, will be carried out.

In June, Dark Horse completed the first-stage renegotiation of the option deal for the acquisition of the Las Tapias lithium project in Argentina.
