E3 METALS CORP. (TSXV:ETMC, FSE:OU7A, OTC:EEMMF) is pleased to provide an update on its developments through the first half of 2020 and ongoing activities as the world begins to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Direct Lithium Extraction Process

E3 Metals has been working diligently on its proprietary Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) process with Livent Corporation (NYSE: LTHM) — see news release dated September 18, 2019.  The work has continued through the pandemic with appropriate protocols in place to ensure the health and safety of E3 Metals‘ and Livent’s staff and contractors. The project’s goals have remained in focus and both companies are working toward a commercially viable process that will ultimately be demonstrated with a planned pilot plant in Alberta.

Alberta Lithium Brine Project

In parallel to the DLE process development work with Livent, E3 Metals is actively advancing the overall project, which includes local infrastructure and reservoir development. Recent attention has been placed on abandoned well liabilities in Alberta with the federal government committing $1 billion CAD to the cleanup effort. E3 Metals has identified the potential for repurposing oil wells into lithium production and is actively developing this plan. This could see E3 reduce the overall capital expenditure by using already existing infrastructure.

“While the recent pandemic has had a global impact, E3’s goals continue unwavered,” commented E3’s CEO, Chris Doornbos. “The drivers behind the lithium market remain strong and high purity lithium hydroxide continues to fetch a healthy premium. Having a project in Alberta, Canada brings advantages few other lithium projects can boast; available infrastructure, available work force, a strong social license and a secure and stable jurisdiction from a sovereign risk perspective. As we begin to emerge from the pandemic I would like to extend my appreciation to my staff and contractors for working safely and diligently through this tough time.”

Corporate Update Webinar

To provide more details on the Company’s plans for 2020, the Company is pleased to provide a live Corporate Overview Webinar with Chris Doornbos, President & CEO on Tuesday, June 16 at 2 p.m. EST.
