GreenLight Resources Inc. (TSXV:GR,OTCBB:PRZCF) announced that tests have been completed to confirm the validity of the Silchlor chlorination process in extracting economic minerals from its Brazil Lake lithium concentrate material.

As quoted in the press release:

The patented Silchlor Cyclic Vacuum Chlorination Process technology assessment report verifying the process was completed by an independent qualified person. GreenLight retained Dr. Ian Flint of Halifax, NS to independently confirm if this technology could be applied to the extraction of economic minerals from the Brazil Lake Lithium and rare metals project.

Confirmation tests were successfully conducted for the digestion of the lithium pyroxene concentrate from the Brazil Lake deposit. The iron, aluminum and lithium chloride products where produced under the test conditions claimed by Silchlor. These products can be converted to oxides or carbonates if required by known chemical processes. The process also shows promise for the purification of tantalum, niobium and rubidium. The next stage of development will be the modification of the vessel design to allow the testing of larger samples in preparation for pilot plant work.
