Greenlight Resources Inc. announced that the company has begun the testing and evaluation of a new scientific process use to extract lithium from other minerals.
Greenlight Resources Inc. said that the Silchlor Cyclic Vacuum Chlorination process would be used to test assayed samples obtained from the company’s Brazil Lake properties in Nova Scotia, Canada.
The objectives of the testing program are numerous. Greenlight Resources Inc. will attempt to determine if the Silchlor Cyclic Vacuum Chlorination process can extract lithium at a lower cost than the current solar brine process. The company will also determine the amount of waste products produced by the new process, and whether other mineral products can be extracted during the process.
Greenlight Resources Inc. said that the original agreement was signed with Champlain Mineral Ventures Limited and Silchlor Inc. in April 2010, to test the Silchlor Cyclic Vacuum Chlorination process.
Greenlight Resources Inc. said that Dr. Ian Flint is overseeing the testing and evaluation of the Silchlor Cyclic Vacuum Chlorination process. Flint has a doctorate in Mining and Mineral Processing Engineering from the University of British Columbia, and a Master in Arts and Science from the University of Toronto.
