Westwater Resources acquires water rights for Columbus Basin Project in Nevada
Westwater Resources is pleased to announce that it has received two groundwater appropriation permits for its Columbus Basin Project in Nevada. A total of 1,528 acre-feet of groundwater was approved by the Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for Westwater's development and use in lithium mining operations. Christopher Jones, President and CEO, said, "Water rights are critical to the development of lithium brine properties - and we have secured all of the remaining groundwater in the Columbus Basin. This acquisition sets Westwater apart from most of our competitors in Nevada. Owning the right to use the ground water materially differentiates our exploration plays from the other developers in the area going forward."
