Standard Lithium Commissions Saltworks for Design & Build of Selective Crystallisation Portion of Its Pilot Plant

V.SLL, Standard Lithium

Standard Lithium Ltd. (“Standard Lithium” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SLL) (FRA:S5L) is pleased to announce that it has commissioned Saltworks Technologies Inc. (“Saltworks”) to design and build a novel, selective crystallisation plant to make battery-grade lithium carbonate in a continuous process.  The feedstock to the crystallisation plant will be the high-purity lithium solution produced by the full-scale Selective Extraction Pilot Plant previously announced by the Company on 26th March 2018.  The crystallisation plant will be intelligently automated and will utilise machine-learning to optimise the crystallisation conditions.  The selective crystallisation plant will be designed, built and tested in Vancouver, BC, and will then be deployed at the Company’s Pilot Plant location in El Dorado, Arkansas.  This novel, continuous selective crystallisation plant is based on work conducted by Professor Jason Hein, a member of Standard Lithium’s Technical Advisory Committee, that has been demonstrated at bench scale to result in reproducible and high purity lithium carbonate crystallisation.[...] read more

Standard Lithium: Going where the right brine project is

V.SLL, Standard Lithium

Towards the end of our interview, Robert Mintak CEO of Standard Lithium (V.SLL), laid out Standard’s criteria for evaluating lithium opportunities, “You have to get the right project,” he said, “There needs to be infrastructure. You need a workforce. You need to access to water and reagents. You have to consider the jurisdiction and the permitting rules. Utilizing modern selective extraction, you need to not only pump large volumes of brine, you need to know if you will be allowed to re-inject the processed brine.”[...] read more

Standard Lithium Signs MoU with Global Specialty Chemical Company LANXESS for the Development of Commercially Viable Extraction of Lithium from Operational Smackover Brine Resource

V.SLL, Standard Lithium

Standard Lithium Ltd.

Standard Lithium Completes Successful Gravity Geophysical Survey at Cadiz Dry Lake, California Lithium Project

V.SLL, Standard Lithium

Standard Lithium Ltd. (“Standard Lithium” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SLL) (FRA:S5L) is pleased to announce that Hasbrouck Geophysics Inc. has successfully completed a large-scale gravity geophysical survey at the Company’s Cadiz Dry Lake Project, in the Mojave area of California.  The Cadiz Dry Lake Property is located approximately 20 km southeast of the Company’s Bristol Dry Lake Property and is currently permitted for brine extraction and processing activities.  The work has defined an infilled basin with a maximum depth of just over 700 m beneath the Project area.[...] read more

Standard Lithium Provides Pilot Plant and Process Testing Update

V.SLL, Standard Lithium

Standard Lithium Ltd. (“Standard Lithium” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SLL) (OTCQX:STLHF) (FRA:S5L) is pleased to provide an update of the extensive process testing work and pilot plant design being performed by the Company’s Scientific Advisory Team.  The Scientific Advisory Team and other technology vendors have been testing raw lithium brines from Standard Lithium’s Projects in California and Arkansas using a new generation of lithium-selective sorbent technologies.  Data gathered from mini-pilot scale testing has demonstrated highly-effective separation of lithium from other cations in the raw brine, in line with previously published and peer-reviewed studies, and has also demonstrated that the solid sorbent materials can be simply made using standard commercial manufacturing processes.  Work has also been completed to test varying physical methods by which raw brine can be mixed with the lithium-selective material to optimise lithium removal.  Testing is ongoing and will be used in the full-scale pilot design (see below).[...] read more
