Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSXV: ML) (“Millennial” or the “Company”) is pleased to report encouraging results from an extended pumping test of a second production-scale well at its Pastos Grandes Project in Salta, Argentina. Pumping well PGPW17-04 was installed to complete extended pumping of lithium brine to determine the robustness and chemical variation of the aquifer over 23 days in September, 2018. At a pumping rate of 15 litres/second (L/s), the lithium content remained consistent over the trial period and the drawdown was approximately 57 metres (m), with rapid recovery. Estimated transmissivity was calculated from the drawdown data at 40m2/day. The pumping test was completed under the direction and supervision of Montgomery and Associates.
MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / OTCQB: MGXMF / FSE: 1MG) and engineering partner PurLucid Treatment Solutions (“PurLucid”) are pleased to report commissioning results from its commercial-scale 5m3 per hour (750 barrel per day) NFLi-5 advanced wastewater treatment system. The system is currently operating and under contract with an oilsands SAGD operator to process evaporator blowdown water (EBD). The study focused on a 3-week operational period in December 2018 as preparation for an additional in-line deployment of a new 10m3 per hour (1500 bpd), which is now underway.
Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSXV: ML) (FSE: A3N2) (OTCQX: MLNLF) (“Millennial” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that bench scale process test work completed by SGS Canada Inc. (SGS) in their facilities in Lakefield, ON on brine from the Company’s Pastos Grandes project in Salta, Argentina, has yielded battery grade (> 99.5% Li2CO3) lithium carbonate. Final purification testwork results yielded a lithium carbonate product that is 99.92% Li2CO3 with low levels of magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca), boron (B), sulphate (SO4) and iron (Fe), with no other detectable metals.
Advantage Lithium Corp. (the “Company” or “Advantage Lithium”) (TSX Venture: AAL) (OTCQX: AVLIF) is pleased to provide this update on the brine sampling of diamond core holes CAU20 and CAU21 in the NW Sector of the Cauchari JV property located in Jujuy Province, Argentina.
Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSXV: ML) (FSE: A3N2:GR) (OTCQB: MLNLF) (“Millennial” or the “Company”) is pleased to report positive drilling and analytical results from the latest complete exploration wells at its Pastos Grandes Project in Salta, Argentina. All four new exploration holes (PGMW18-12—15) completed to date have terminated in thick lithium-bearing brine zones with Hole 15 intersecting lithium grades reaching up to 500 mg/L Li with the lithium horizon displaying a thickness of 236 metres.
MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / OTCQB: MGXMF / FKT: 1MG) is pleased to announce the engagement of Erich Schnake, former Chilean Mining Ministry Undersecretary, to its South American management team. Mr. Schnake will provide legal and regulatory support to advance the Company’s efforts in navigating Chilean regulatory permitting frameworks in order to obtain production permits.
Standard Lithium Ltd. (“Standard Lithium” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SLL) (OTCQX:STLHF) (FRA:S5L), is pleased to report laboratory results of high-quality lithium brines recovered from the Smackover Formation from the Company’s project area in southwestern Arkansas. Four brine samples recovered from two existing wells in the project area showed lithium concentrations ranging between 347–461 mg/L lithium, with an average of 450 mg/L lithium in one of the wells, and 350 mg/L in the other.
MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / FKT: 1MG / OTCQB: MGXMF) is pleased to announce that joint-venture partner Belmont Resources (TSX-V: BEA) has reported that drilling has reached a depth of 1,798 feet (548 metres) into the playa sediments in hole KB-3, the first hole of the 2018 drilling program at Kibby Basin. The first section of the hole was drilled to a depth of 1,270 feet using a mud rotary method, and the remaining 528 feet was completed with a diamond core tail. A total of 126 samples of drill cuttings from the mud-rotary section of the hole have been collected and shipped to ALS Global lab facility in Reno, Nevada for assaying. Lithium and multi-element assay results from these samples will be compiled once testing is complete.
