Standard Lithium (TSX.V: SLI) (NYSE American: SLI) (FRA: S5L), a leading near-commercial lithium company, today announced completion of all necessary agreements with LANXESS Corporation to secure access to the proposed commercial lithium plant site (the “site access agreement”) and all required fieldwork to support the Definitive Feasibility Study (“DFS”) underway. In addition, the company announced that subsequent to entering the site access agreement, it has commenced the site work necessary for the design of its first commercial lithium plant. “The company is pleased to reach this important milestone. Our team has successfully negotiated and agreed to a key agreement with LANXESS, the site owner, to exclusively secure the required property for our commercial facilities and allow us to start working on the ground at the proposed location of the first commercial lithium project,” said Dr. Andy Robinson, president of Standard Lithium. “The data gathered over the next few months will be vital to allow the OPD team to design the plant and locate key equipment on the large land area available to Standard Lithium at LANXESS’ South Plant facility. Once the important ground conditions are determined, and the location of key equipment can be fixed, then the engineering work to allow for connection between the Standard Lithium plant and LANXESS’ existing brine infrastructure present at the site can begin. We look forward to announcing more developments as the design towards the company’s first commercial lithium project unfolds.”
