Standard Lithium. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTCQX: STLHF) today provided an update on the progress of its development work at the California Lithium Project, which is comprised of Mojave Desert, California area Bristol Dry Lake and Cadiz Dry Lake lithium brine properties. Progress, to date, includes installation of six new separate evaporation ponds on the Bristol Dry Lake Property designed to further assess the role of short-duration passive solar evaporation in processing the project’s lithium brines. Due to extremely high evaporation rates in the project area, previous work demonstrated the potential to concentrate brines from initial lithium concentrations of 146 mg/L to concentrations of 686 mg/L in approximately 7 weeks. (This average concentration was previously reported as 556 mg/L, but has been revised upwards based on final QA/QC data). Additional evaporation tests are continuing in order to assess evaporation rates according to seasonal variations and for the production of large volumes of pre-concentrated brine for shipment to Standard Lithium’s testing facilities across North America for use in ongoing selective lithium extraction processing. In addition, over the next several weeks, a bulk raw-brine sample from the Cadiz Dry Lake Project will be transported to the evaporation ponds to assess pre-concentration of lithium brine from this project.
