E3 Metals (TSXV: ETMC,FSE:OU7A,OTC:EEMMF) is pleased to announce it has achieved a major milestone in the development of its proprietary Ion Exchange Lithium Extraction Technology. A series of tests were conducted on the sorbent incorporating the most recent enhancements as outlined in our December 4, 2018 news release.
As quoted in the press release:
“This increase in concentration using our proprietary Extraction Technology is the key to unlocking the value of our vast, yet lower grade, resource. These results move us a significant step toward supporting E3’s goal of becoming an industry leading, low-cost producer of battery grade lithium products,” commented Chris Doornbos, President and CEO of E3 Metals Corp.
“We have demonstrated the ability to significantly increase our lithium concentration without using additional energy. The higher upfront concentration means less volume to handle downstream from our lithium Extraction Technology and should reduce the energy, inputs and potentially the capital and operating costs required to generate lithium hydroxide. These results continually demonstrate an innovative and robust process developed by the University of Alberta and supported by Green Centre Canada, with funding from Alberta Innovates.”
