The results should confirm the commercial potential and scalability of LithiumBank’s unique combination of resources, processes and design.

LithiumBank’s new facility can process 10,000 liters of lithium-enriched brine per day, making it one of the largest DLE pilot plants in North America.

The Alberta provincial government has expressed its support for the initiative, underscoring the region’s commitment to improving lithium production.

The pilot program is designed to simulate the scale of future commercial production modules approximately 1:5,000 and is expected to last up to 18 months.

Paul Matysek, Chairman of LithiumBank, said: “The licensing of our pilot plant is a major step forward and an important milestone for our company.

“We believe that the successful application of our DLE technology could be crucial for the potential start-up of a new raw materials industry in the province.

“We look forward to testing the brine from the large, suspected lithium resources we have identified at our Boardwalk and Park Place properties.”
