– Patented technology poised to potentially offer a cost effective clay solution
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Clear Sky Lithium Corp. (CSE: POWR) (FRA: K4A / WKN: A3DM2W) (OTC: CSKYF) (“Clear Sky” or the “Company”), a mining exploration and development company focused on U.S. lithium deposits to support the Domestic Demand, has launched a newly formed research collaboration as part of its ongoing strategic plans to advance innovative, cost-effective and clean lithium mining and processing technologies.
Clear Sky has signed up with California-based MDS Technical Corp. (“MDS”) for the development and testing of a patented membrane extraction technology suitable for lithium-containing clays. Originally established in 1980 as a joint venture between Brown Bavari Corporation (BBC) of Zurich, Switzerland, and Desalination Systems (DSI) of Escondido, California, the company has developed many applications for membrane technology , from the concept to the installation of a full-scale plant.
Company CEO Patrick Morris comments, “We look forward to working with Larry and his team at MDS on this disruptive technology. As our team of advisors and consultants grows, our goal is to develop an efficient way to turn our raw lithium clay material into a salable finished product. This potential process could unlock the full value of our clay projects.
“Given the advanced state of the MDS technology, combined with the previous successes they have enjoyed in the mining sector, we believe we can quickly undertake a test bed to validate the potential and pave the way for a pilot study. scalable,” Morris continues. , “If successful, a cost-effective extraction process using membrane technology could prove beneficial to Clear Sky. As always, we are focused on building asset value on behalf of our team, our partners and our shareholders. »
MDS brings over 40 years of developing solutions that have spread to almost every continent. Led by Larry Lien, the company has a proven track record in developing solutions to very complex challenges. MDS has provided solutions to a number of industries such as wastewater management, oil and gas, mining and metal processing sectors. With the increased interest in lithium mining, and specifically the potential for domestic clay production, MDS has developed key solutions using its patented processes for the extraction and processing of lithium from clays found in salars, hectorite clay and hard rock pegmatites.
Clay-based lithium processing has historically proven difficult. While more than 50% of undeveloped U.S. lithium projects with established resources are associated with clayI, none of which reached commercial production. As part of Clear Sky’s commitment to becoming a leading US developer of lithium for the US supply chain, the company is diligently exploring processing solutions to advance its mining assets to phase-in operations. development and ultimately into the commercial phase.
The proposed lab-scale studies are currently scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of this year and will use analyzed and verified samples from Clear Sky’s operations in Nevada and the resulting lab analysis will serve as the basis for determining the viability of a development program based on the MDS. Technology.
