:: MGX Minerals Files Technical Report on Rapid Lithium Extraction Process


MGX Minerals Inc. has filed a technical report on SEDAR related to the environmental treatment and recovery of lithium from oil industry wastewaters and continued development of its technology portfolio. The report is now available for viewing under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com.

As previously announced, MGX and PurLucid Treatment Solutions are developing brine treatment and lithium recovery technologies that provide superior performance while meeting a broad spectrum of treatment needs. The technology suite complements existing MGX technologies (U.S. Provisional Patent #62/419,011).

The independent engineering group Saskatchewan Research Council recently validated the rapid recovery technology results (see press release dated April 20, 2017) from Phase 1 testing by Dr. McEachern. Phase II bench top testing commenced in February with new brine pre-treatment and concentration designs. The new design incorporates PurLucid’s proprietary filtration technology and process optimization tools. In four consecutive bench-scale trials, lithium was successfully concentrated by more than 25-fold and the resulting brines contained far fewer impurities (notably calcium, magnesium, boron and sodium) that impede subsequent production of lithium solids. MGX plans to conduct a second round of independent testing with SRC once the upgraded design process is finalized.
