MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / FKT: 1MG / OTCQB: MGXMF) is pleased to announce the engagement of Quantec Geoscience (“Quantec”) to complete a Time Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) survey on the Salinitas lithium brine project (the “Project”) in the Salinas Grande Salar of northwest Argentina. MGX has partnered with A.I.S. Resources (TSX.V: AIS) on the Project and is currently earning an 80% interest. The TDEM geophysical survey will be conducted along 52 stations spaced in 500 meter intervals across the edge of the salar to test for shallow, near surface brines to determine locations with anomalous concentrations of lithium.
Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSXV: SLL) (OTCQX: STLHF) (FRA: S5L) (“Standard Lithium” or the “Company”), is very pleased to announce the appointment of Nobel Laureate, Professor Barry Sharpless to the Company’s Scientific Advisory Council.
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).
Argentina Lithium & Energy Corp. (TSX-V:LIT) (FSE:OAY1) (WKN: A0RK7E) (OTC:PNXLF), “Argentina Lithium” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired a 100% interest in, or has under application, mineral rights totaling 23,700 hectares covering the entire Incahuasi Salar and basin in Catamarca Province, Argentina. The salar is situated within the “Lithium Triangle” of Argentina and Chile, and has characteristics prospective for lithium-rich brines. Initial sampling of near-surface brines has returned up to 409mg/L lithium, and geophysical surveying indicates the potential for lithium-rich brines at depth.
