The company’s flagship project is located in Southern Arkansas, where it is engaged in the testing and proving of the commercial viability of lithium extraction from more than 150,000 acres of permitted brine operations. The company has commissioned its first-of-a-kind industrial scale direct lithium extraction demonstration plant at LANXESS’ South Plant facility in Southern Arkansas. The demonstration plant utilizes the company’s proprietary LiSTR technology to selectively extract lithium from LANXESS’ tailbrine. The demonstration plant is being used for proof-of-concept and commercial feasibility studies. The scalable, environmentally friendly process eliminates the use of evaporation ponds, reduces processing time from months to hours and greatly increases the effective recovery of lithium. The company is also pursuing the resource development of more than 30,000 acres of separate brine leases located in Southwestern Arkansas and approximately 45,000 acres of mineral leases located in the Mojave Desert in San Bernardino County, California.
