The announcement follows the recent conclusion of a successful lithium production enhancement laboratory test, which was conducted in a third-party laboratory utilizing KMX’s proprietary technology.
KMX and Cornish Lithium will work together to incorporate KMX’s technology into Cornish Lithium’s Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) Pilot Plant at its United Downs Geothermal Waters Test Facility in Cornwall.
Cornish Lithium will evaluate KMX’s technology in a pilot and demonstration setting, with a view to establishing whether KMX’s technology will be appropriate for a commercial scale plant as part of the sustainable resource development process at the Company’s Cornwall projects.
“Cornish Lithium is leading the way in securing the lithium needed to meet the UK’s energy transition goals,” stated KMX CEO Zachary Sadow. “We are proud to partner with Cornish Lithium for such an important sustainable lithium project for the UK.”
Dr Rebecca Paisley, Cornish Lithium, stated: “We are actively engaging with companies to trial innovative, extraction technologies that are energy efficient and capable of processing the unique geothermal waters found in Cornwall. KMX’s proprietary technology has shown encouraging results during bench scale testing and we look forward to deploying their pilot system at our Geothermal Water Test Site to aid in the production of lithium salts.”
Project goals include:
• Maximizing lithium production efficiency and lithium development sustainability across all Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) technologies for Cornish
• Expanding stakeholder benefits, including shareholders and underlying resource owner, through enhanced project economics. These include, but are
not limited to, operational cost savings and reduced project timelines generated by utilizing KMX’s proprietary technology.
• Enhancing the competitiveness, sustainability and stability of the UK’s domestic lithium production, in-line with the aims of the UK Critical Mineral
Strategy and the UK Government’s Net Zero strategy
• Adopting KMX’s proprietary technology across Cornish Lithium’s current and future asset base to maximize Cornish Lithium’s economic output and
minimize its environmental footprint.
• Promoting development of innovative, lithium production technologies to address unique local ecological and social challenges, including water
scarcity and heightened environmental stakeholder expectations.
