AMERICA’S 21ST CENTURY LITHIUM COMPANY
Fast. Sustainable. Ready.
U.S. ASSETS REQUIRE A NEW APPROACH:
Setting a new Standard for environmentally sustainable and strategically located lithium production in the U.S.
By leveraging the existing infrastructure and operational expertise of the largest brine processing facilities in North America, Standard Lithium (SLI) is leading a new wave of U.S. lithium production. Utilizing strategic partnerships, sustainable modern extraction and processing technologies, the Company is setting a new Standard for environmentally responsible lithium production in the U.S.
The Company’s two flagship projects, the Lanxess Project and the South West Arkansas Project provide growth opportunities within the prolific Smackover Formation located in Southern Arkansas near the Louisiana border. Arkansas is a business-friendly environment with a rich history of chemical and energy production, with a deep talent pool, in the geographic center of the Electric Mobility Manufacturing Corridor. Combined, the two projects cover over 180,000 acres of unitized brine leases with a target production of 50,000+ tonnes of sustainably produced, battery quality lithium chemicals.
Most advanced is the Lanxess Project, which is a brownfield project being developed in cooperation with the region’s largest brine operator, specialty chemical company LANXESS Corp. Standard Lithium has entered into agreements that allow the Company to leverage LANXESS existing, permitted processing infrastructure to develop a commercial lithium business (link to press release). With this infrastructure head start and few of the traditional resource project risks the Company’s flagship project represents the fastest and most environmentally friendly opportunity for new U.S. lithium production.
A 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) for the Lanxess Project was completed in 2019 (link to full PEA Technical Report). A full Front-End-Engineering (FEED) Study and a Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) for the first commercial plant, Phase 1A, is targeted for completion the first half of 2023.
South West Arkansas Project
The South West Arkansas Project is a greenfield project located approximately 25 miles to the west of the Lanxess Project. The South West Arkansas Project will benefit from much of the same existing local infrastructure (such as rail, power, paved highways, etc.) and skilled labor found in the area. A NI 43-101 PEA was completed in 2021 (link to full PEA Technical Report) and a Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) is targeted for completion during the first half of 2023 with a DFS to commence shortly thereafter.
