A UNIQUE COMPANY FOR A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY

“Technology guides our approach to project development, putting large resources that were considered inaccessible within immediate reach…”

By applying a disciplined development plan, proprietary modern processing technologies and strategic partnerships, Standard Lithium has positioned itself to lead the next generation of U.S. lithium production.

The Company is currently focused on the immediate development of its flagship, the 3,140,000 tonne LCE Indicated Resource -150,000-acre joint venture Lanxess Project, located in south Arkansas. The region is home to North America’s largest brine production fairway with over five decades of commercial production, significant infrastructure, abundant low-cost electricity, access to chemical reagents and water sources. The project is already permitted for extensive brine extraction and processing activities.
