Engages Lead Process Development Team
VANCOUVER, BC (July 28, 2022) —Clear Sky Lithium Corp. (CSE: POWR) (FRA: K4A / WKN: A3DM2W) (“Clear Sky” or the “Company”), a mineral exploration and development company focused on American lithium deposits to support domestic demand, has engaged a specialized metallurgical research and development team as part of strategic plans to advance innovative and clean claystone processing technologies for lithium.
Clear Sky has engaged Kemetco Research Inc. (“Kemetco”) of Richmond, British Columbia to provide metallurgical test work services in support of the Company’s objective to develop and advance claystone process technology development.
Processing claystone-based lithium has historically proven challenging. While more than 50% of the undeveloped US lithium projects with established resources are clay associated[i], none of them have reached commercial production.
As part of Clear Sky’s commitment to becoming a premier American developer of lithium for the US supply chain, the Company is working on identify processing solutions aimed at advancing its property towards development-stage and ultimately commercial-stage activities.
Company CEO, Patrick Morris, notes, “Unlocking claystone lithium processing is the key to America’s electrification pathway. A domestic supply of lithium should reduce America’s dependence on foreign suppliers and strengthen the local supply chain. Clear Sky is excited to be working with Kemetco and leverage their experience in extractive metallurgy research.”
Kemetco Research is a private sector integrated science, technology and innovation company. Kemetco’s Contract Sciences operation provides laboratory analysis and testing, field work, bench scale studies, pilot plant investigations, consulting services, applied research and development for both industry and government. Kemetco provides scientific expertise in the fields of Specialty Analytical Chemistry, Chemical Process and Extractive Metallurgy, and its clients range from start-up companies developing new technologies through to large multinational corporations with proven processes.
This initial test work will include analysis and verification of results from field acquired surface grab samples from the property and the resulting laboratory analysis alongside additional field work targets eventual bench scale studies and additional research and development initiatives.
