E3 METALS TO SCALE UP TESTING WITH LARGE LITHIUM-ENRICHED BRINE SAMPLE
E3 Metals Corp. has collected a large volume of lithium-enriched brine from the Leduc reservoir in the Central Clearwater resource area (CCRA) of its Alberta lithium project. This 20,000-litre brine sample is the largest collected to date and is required to support the continued testing and scale up of E3 Metals' proprietary direct lithium extraction (DLE) process over the next 12 months.
Brine collection was completed last week with assistance from a local oil and gas operator with which E3 Metals has been actively collaborating since 2017. "E3 Metals has been working with the oil and gas industry throughout our project development to date," stated E3 Metals chief executive officer Chris Doornbos. "Leduc formation brine is a byproduct to the oil and gas industry in Alberta and E3 Metals sees tremendous value in this lithium-enriched brine through the planned commercialization of its proprietary DLE process. The brine will be utilized as part of our ongoing technology scale-up program under the joint development agreement with Livent Corp."
