Lithium Chile (TSX-V: LITH): Seventeen Projects, 159,700 Hectares of Potential Lithium Bearing Salars in Chile, World’s Largest, High-Grade Lithium Reserves and Lowest-Cost Lithium Production; Interview with Steve Cochrane, President and CEO
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Lithium Chile (TSX-V: LITH) owns seventeen projects, encompassing 159,700 hectares of potential Li-bearing Salars in Chile – home to world’s largest, high-grade lithium reserves and lowest-cost lithium production. The portfolio includes projects with potential for high-grade lithium brines and excellent chemistry. We learned from Steve Cochrane, President and CEO of Lithium Chile, that they had put together one of the best, and certainly one of the biggest, exploration packages of perspective Lithium properties in all of Chile. The company completed a sampling program and prioritized 6 of its 17 prospects, based on grade, size, infrastructure and access, and conducted an extensive follow up geophysical program on 5 out of the six prospects, with great data on all 5 of them. Based on this, the company prepared a reconnaissance drilling program on four prospects and submitted the program and received approvals from the Ministry of Mines in Chile. Lithium Chile then entered into negotiations with the local communities associated with all 4 of these prospects to secure surface access for their exploration programs. Following the approval of the local community for access to their Salar de Ollague, Lithium Chile completed a successful 5 well program. The company encountered lithium bearing brines on all 5 holes with grades ranging from 190 mg/l up to 480 mg/l in the target horizon. Lithium Chile is now conducting negotiations, with the community, on their Salar de Coipasa to secure surface access. The company plans to run the second drilling program on the Coipasa prospect because they consider this property to be one of their most prospective properties. According to Mr. Cochrane, Lithium Chile has de-risked its story over the last nine months by drilling and encountering lithium bearing brines on Ollague. With the recent retrenchment in the lithium share prices for most of the publicly traded lithium companies, at current share price the company presents an attractive investment opportunity.

Saltworks Developed and Commercialized Technology for Lithium Mining and Processing Companies, Interview with Ben Sparrow, CEO of Saltworks Technologies Incorporated
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


We interviewed Ben Sparrow, CEO of Saltworks Technologies Incorporated, a Canadian industrial desalination and advanced water-treatment Company. Saltworks developed and commercialized a technology that can help lithium mining and processing companies extract lithium from brine more economically. We learned from Mr. Sparrow that they developed a chemical softening robot that is much more compact, much more precise, easier to use and automated, compared to standard reverse osmosis systems. At the membrane treatment step, Saltworks developed the ability to remove and manipulate ions in water selectively and they created special membranes that can selectively pull lithium away from calcium or magnesium. Saltworks also created membranes tolerant to oil and gas, where they can desalt oil and gas produced water. At the thermal treatment step, Saltworks built a more reliable evaporative crystallizer made out of fiberglass so it doesn't rust. It cleans itself, doesn't stick, and has a built-in solids management system. Saltworks has two factories in Canada, about 40 patents, and its shareholders include British Petroleum, ConocoPhillips and Teck Resources.
