Vancouver, British Columbia – November 14, 2023 – Noram Lithium Corp. (“Noram” or the “Company”) (TSXV: NRM | OTCQB: NRVTF | Frankfurt: N7R) is providing an update on its 100% owned Zeus Lithium Project (“Zeus” or the “Project”), located in Clayton Valley, Nevada.
The Company recently completed a third phase of metallurgical testing on Zeus drill core at Kemetco Research Inc. in Richmond, BC Canada and confirmed the metallurgical processing flow sheet for the Project (see news release dated September 13, 2023). During the final phases of the test work program, high purity lithium carbonate was produced from solution generated by large laboratory scale batch leach tests (Figure 1).
Figure 1 – 99.2% lithium carbonate precipitate from Zeus laboratory test work.
“The Phase III metallurgical test work program at Kemetco and associated modelling and design work has been a tremendous success” stated Greg McCunn, CEO of Noram. “The production of a high purity product from the solution generated during larger scale batch leach tests is the final confirmation that we have a process that can successfully be implemented to produce battery grade lithium carbonate for the electric vehicle industry in the United States.”
The purity of the lithium carbonate produced was 99.2%. The main impurities remaining in the lithium carbonate were small traces of sodium and potassium sulphate. In the industrial scale process, the lithium carbonate will be subjected to bicarbonation, where the lithium carbonate is redissolved with carbon dioxide. This process allows for a more thorough removal of sodium and potassium than can be achieved on a laboratory sample. Based on these encouraging results, there is a high level of confidence that battery grade lithium carbonate (+99.5%) can be achieved at a commercial scale at Zeus.
