About E3 Metals Corp.
E3 Metals is a lithium company developing 6.7 Mt LCE of inferred mineral resources1 in Alberta. Through the commercialization of its proprietary lithium extraction process, E3 plans to quickly move towards the production of high purity, battery grade, lithium hydroxide.
E3 Metals Corp combines a significant resource with the right technology solutions that have the potential to deliver lithium to market in one of the best jurisdictions in the world. Our prolific Leduc Reservoir hosts lithium enriched brine with 6.7 million tonnes LCE inferred mineral resource1 delineated to date. The development of this resource through brine production is a well understood venture in Alberta, where this brine is currently being produced to surface through extensive oil and gas development.
While the lithium brine and hydrocarbons are mutually exclusive, the Leduc Reservoir can support the production of brine few others can boast, with one well having the ability to bring 10,000 m3/day (115 L/s) to surface. With an average and consistent grade of 77.4 mg/L in the Clearwater Resource Area1, E3 Metals’ proprietary lithium extraction process can quickly produce a concentrate with a grade over 5000mg/L. With 99% of the impurities removed at the same time and recoveries averaging 90%2, this produces a concentrate feedstock that is likely to be processed directly by conventional lithium production technology to produce high purity lithium hydroxide (LiOH∙H2O). The Company’s plans are to deliver a process facility of 10,000 tonnes LCE/year LiOH by 2022 and continue expansion to an eventual 50,000 tonnes LCE/year.
