CLEAR SKY LITHIUM PARTNERS WITH PROCESSING EXPERT TO UNLOCK CLAYSTONE EXTRACTION
Clear Sky Lithium Corp. has initiated a newly formed research collaboration as part of its continuing strategic plans to advance innovative, cost-effective and clean lithium extraction and processing technologies.
Clear Sky has engaged with California-based MDS Technical Corp. for the development and testing of a patented membrane extraction technology tailored to lithium-bearing claystones. Originally formed in 1980 as a joint venture between Brown Bavari Corp. (BBC) of Zurich, Switzerland, and Desalination Systems (DSI) of Escondido, Calif., the company has developed numerous applications for membrane technology from concept to full-size plant installation.
Company chief executive officer Patrick Morris comments: "We look forward to working with Larry and his team at MDS on this disruptive technology. As our team of advisers and consultants grows, our goal is to develop an efficient means to process our material from raw claystone lithium into a finished saleable product. This potential process could unlock the full value of our claystone projects."
"Given the advanced state of the MDS technology, combined with the previous successes they have enjoyed in the mining sector, we believe we can quickly undertake a bench test to validate the potential, and initiate a pathway towards a scalable pilot study." Mr. Morris continues: "If successful, a cost-effective extraction process using the membrane technology could prove beneficial for Clear Sky. As always, we are focused on developing asset value on behalf of our team, our partners, and our shareholders alike."
MDS brings over 40 years of developing solutions that have spread across almost every continent. Led by Larry Lien, the company has a proven record of developing solutions to highly complex challenges. MDS has provided solutions to a number of industries such as wastewater management, oil and gas, mining, and metals processing sectors. With the heightened interest in lithium mining, and specifically the potential for domestic claystone production, MDS has developed key solutions utilizing its patented processes for the extraction and processing of lithium from clays present in salars, hectorite clay and hard rock pegmatites.
Processing claystone-based lithium has historically proven challenging. While more than 50 per cent of the undeveloped United States lithium projects with established resources are clay associated, none of them have reached commercial production. As part of Clear Sky's commitment to becoming a premier American developer of lithium for the U.S. supply chain, the company is diligently investigating processing solutions aimed at advancing its mineral assets toward development-stage and ultimately commercial-stage activities.
The proposed bench-scale studies are currently scheduled to commence in Q4 of this year and will utilize analyzed and verified samples from Clear Sky's Nevada holdings and the resulting laboratory analysis will be utilized as the basis to determine the viability of a development program based upon the MDS technology.
Clear Sky Lithium advises the public that as part of its disclosure obligations as a public issuer, all material and regulatory filings can be found on SEDAR. The company also invites the public to visit its website and to sign up to its "news alerts" to be advised of future news releases and related company information.
