Lithium Australia NL to present at InvestorIntel’s 6th Annual Cleantech & Technology Metals Summit

Adrian Griffin to present “Reversing Mother Nature to Recover Lithium from Silicates”

May 8, 2017 – Lithium Australia NL (ASX: LIT), driving your future further, is pleased to announce that they will be presenting at InvestorIntel’s 6th Annual Cleantech & Technology Metals Summit ( | @CTMS2017). Featuring some of the most impressive market movers in the cleantech and technology metals sector, #CTMS2017 is scheduled for Monday, May 15th and Tuesday, May 16th at the Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto, Canada located at 37 King St. East.

Adrian Griffin, Managing Director of Lithium Australia NL, will be presenting on Monday, May 15th from 11:25-11:40 AM (EST): Reversing Mother Nature to Recover Lithium from Silicates. Nearly all lithium silicates have geological DNA in common and lithium is one of the last elements to drop out of volatile magmas. The activity of components can be reversed under atmospheric conditions, making the silicates soluble again, releasing the lithium into solution for processing into valuable lithium chemicals, as well as other saleable by-products – Sileach™ has arrived.

InvestorIntel Corp. CEO Tracy Weslosky commented: “It is with great pleasure that we announce the participation of Lithium Australia NL as a presenter at our 6th annual Cleantech and Technology Metals Summit. We have over 100 companies participating in what is intended to be the most exciting review of global equities focused on strategic materials, critical metals and the associated technologies that impact the world. Please note that Adrian will be on two panels: (1) A debate on innovative processes to supply the new energy economy moderated by InvestorIntel Sr. Editor Peter Clausi on Monday, May 15th from 9:00-9:50 AM (EST); (2) discussing the lithium exploration/M&A markets moderated by InvestorIntel Editor Christopher Ecclestone on Monday, May 15th from 10:20-11:10 AM (EST). We look forward to our best #CTMS event to-date.”

InvestorIntel’s 6th Annual Cleantech & Technology Metals Summit is being held on Monday, May 15th and Tuesday, May 16th from 8AM – 6PM at the Omni King Edward Hotel on 37 King St. East in Toronto, Canada (

Partnership with MetalsTech to advance Lithium Australia’s technology

Win-win partnership strategy concept. Businessman draw win-win scheme with handshake partnership agreement.Lithium Australia NL (ASX: LIT) has been extremely busy since the beginning of the month culminating in a partnership with MetalsTech Ltd., which was revealed on the 19th of October.

MetalsTech is focused on developing a portfolio of new hard rock projects that are in various stages of development in Quebec. These projects all have access to infrastructure, including low cost power and hydropower. The portfolio includes the following projects:

  • Wells-Lacourciere Lithium Projects (NI-43-101 compliant: Measured and Indicated resource of 33.24 Mt at 1.19% Li2O and an Inferred resource of 13.76 Mt at 1.21% Li2O)
  • Cancet Lithium Project (1.71%, 1.85%, 1.94% and 3.79% Li2O from surface assays)
  • Terre Des Montagnes Project (contiguous with Whabouchi Deposit which has a NI 43-101 Measured, Indicated and Inferred resource of 37.6Mt @ 1.56% Li2O)
  • Adina Lithium Project (up to 3.12% Li2O in surface assays)

In terms of the partnership with Lithium Australia , the idea is for Lithium Australia to provide MetalsTech with the exclusive right to use and apply Lithium Australia’s extraction technologies including its SileachTM and LieNATM processes for the processing of spodumene concentrates.

In return for the technology leverage, Lithium Australia will be rewarded with $1m priority offer in MetalsTech IPO as well as 2% gross revenue on royalty on any products that are produced using Lithium Australia’s lithium extraction technologies as well as equity in MetalsTech. As such, the partnership enables Lithium Australia to become a shareholder in a company that controls several lithium pegmatite projects as well as potentially lucrative royalty income.

In addition to the partnership with MetalsTech, Lithium Australia has completed the transfer of lithium rights from Lefroy Exploration, continuing to consolidate its lithium interests in Lake Johnston area. In terms of the arrangement, Lithium Australia issued 9m shares to Lefroy Exploration for the company’s lithium rights. This arrangement grants Lithium Australia the rights to access most of Lake Johnston’s lithium pegmatite fields.

Moreover, the company announced that it gained permission to drill at Sonora in Mexico. The plan is to test two target areas on their Tecolote concession. This follows the announcement on the 1 July 2016 that Lithium Australia had discovered lithium-bearing clays on the Tecolote concession of the Electra Project. Lithium Australia holds 25% of the joint venture with Sonora and is anticipating that funding the planned drill program would increase its shareholding to 49% equity.

Lithium Australia’s share price closed at $0.185 on the 21st of October.

Lithium Australia sees key as bypassing middleman, dealing directly with users

Lithium Australia Adrian GriffinAdrian Griffin, managing director of Lithium Australia NL (ASX: LIT) presented at the 5th Annual Cleantech and Technology Metals Summit held recently in Toronto.

Lithium Australia is a dedicated developer of disruptive lithium extraction technologies including the versatile Sileach process which is capable of recovering lithium from any silicate materials. The company has strategic alliances with a number of companies, potentially providing access to a diversified global lithium mineral inventory.

In this video presentation, Adrian Griffin offers a critique of the present state of the lithium industry, including the description of brine extraction efficiency as akin to “sucking water out of a sponge with a drinking straw”, and hard rock processing as “throwing dollar bills into a furnace”.

He also:

  • Dissects the high cost problems with processing hard rock resources.
  • Explains why hard rock is where the smart money is going.
  • Outlines the ways in which the lithium industry can improve itself, including the need to bypass the converters and have a business that is “mine gate to battery supply”.
