Enertopia has been informed by one of our independent 3rd party labs that ALS Labs has received new synthetic lithium brines using a more concentrated ratio of 1g source rock and 3g solution with a pH of 11. Also, the temperature of the solution had been raised to 80 degrees Celsius during the two hour testing period. For reference, our first synthetic brines were composed of 1g source rock to a 4g solution with a pH of 11 at room temperature.
The Company continues to work aggressively at unlocking the value of the oxidized lithium bearing rock at the surface along the uplifted block along the eastern flank at Clayton Valley, NV. Further testing of lithium source rock and pH controlled liquid ratios will continue along with and in combination with testing of other separation methods that will be ongoing over the first quarter of 2018. Assay results from the above synthetic brines are expected shortly.
“We are working to inform the marketplace about our recent news and next steps for advancements in the ENERLET lithium extraction technology process,” stated President and CEO Robert McAllister.
