Standard Lithium Ltd. (“Standard Lithium” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SLL) (OTCQX: STLHF) (FRA: S5L), is pleased to provide an update regarding the Company’s rapid progress in developing and building a large-scale Pilot Plant for deployment at the Arkansas project site. The Company and its Scientific Advisory Team have been developing, testing and optimising proprietary lithium extraction and crystallisation technologies on Smackover brines for over a year, and are now at the stage where the process flowsheet is sufficiently tested and proven to allow procurement and fabrication to commence on the full-scale Pilot Plant.
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.
July 06, 2018 – Vancouver, BC – Standard Lithium Ltd. has retained the services of Hybrid Financial Ltd. for strategic investor relations services. Specific duties include initiating and mat;p&intaining contact with the financial community, shareholders, investors and other stakeholders for the purpose of increasing awareness of the company and its U.S.-based, brownfield lithium brine projects.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Standard Lithium Ltd. (“Standard Lithium” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:SLL) (FRA:S5L) is pleased to announce that they have engaged Hunt Guillot & Associates LLC (HGA) of Ruston, Louisiana, to provide engineering services for site preparation, utility connections and brine supply/disposal pipeline connections at the Company’s Pilot Plant site location in El Dorado, Southern Arkansas. HGA experts are very familiar with the plant location, and their scope of work includes geotechnical investigations and civil infrastructure required to site the pilot plant modules; design and tendering of any structures required to house and protect the pilot plant infrastructure; all utility and brine pipeline interconnections; and pilot plant installation.
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.
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).
