The Company is very pleased that it has completed phase one of its field exploration program covering select locations in the Western USA and the Catamarca and Salta provinces of Argentina. All field samples collected by the Company's consultants are currently being analyzed by 3rd party labs.
The Company also attended the Lithium Conference in Argentina, whereby the Company has been successful in entering into discussions with Salar owners and active mining companies on taking part in our upcoming Phase two bench tests with Genesis Water Technologies (GWT).
The Company will provide further exploration and bench test updates as information becomes available. However, due to the very sensitive and competitive nature of these internal prospects being generated on public lands, the Company will keep exact project locations confidential until such time as the lands have been acquired.
"We are very excited about our developments and are working aggressively on mapping out the next steps for phase two battery grade lithium carbonate purity bench testing and property acquisitions," stated President and CEO Robert McAllister.
Enertopia is concurrently working with water purification technology partner GWT using patent pending technology that is believed able to recover Lithium from brine solutions. The companies are currently in the planning phase for a much larger and expanded phase two of bench tests with the goal or achieving battery grade Lithium Carbonate. This is expected to result in the buildout of a pilot plant after achieving battery grade Li2CO3 purity results.
