MGX Minerals Announces Advancement in Nanofiltration Lithium Technology; Commences Initial Design of 2400 Cubic Meter Per Day Plant

CSE:XMG, MGX Minerals, lithium,

MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE:XMG) (FKT:1MG) (OTCQB:MGXMF) is pleased to report the adsorbtion rate for the Company’s lithium extraction nanofiltration process (the “System”) has been increased from 20mg/g, milligram of lithium per gram of adsorbtion reagent, to an optimized 40mg/g Li/reagent. This reflects a doubling of adsorbtion rate and a significant cost cutting breakthrough as reagents reflect the single largest cost in the Company’s lithium extraction process. This advancement reduces reagent use and the direct cost of lithium chloride recovery from brine. Additionally, reagent depletion in the lithium nanofilter has now been reduced to less than 1% per cycle, increasing the operating time and associated recovery for the lithium nanofilter prior to requiring recoating with the reagent.[...] read more
