We look forward to showcasing the hard work our teams have put in over the last 12 months. We await final vendor pricing for our LANXESS Project DFS and for critical, third-party analytical data from the SWA drilling work for the PFS. We have analyzed all of the brine samples from SWA at our own analytical facility and anticipate sharing the data once we receive verification from the external laboratory. We continue to expect our flagship Arkansas projects to be meaningful contributors to U.S. lithium production in the coming decades.”

About Standard Lithium Ltd.
Standard Lithium is a leading near-commercial lithium development company with a portfolio of projects in process. The company’s flagship projects, the Lanxess Project and the South West Arkansas Project, are located in southern Arkansas near the Louisiana state line. The company is focused on the evaluation and testing of commercial lithium extraction and purification from brine sourced from approximately 180,000 acres of unitized leases across these two projects.

The scalable, environmentally friendly process eliminates the use of evaporation ponds, reduces processing time from months to hours and greatly increases the effective recovery of lithium. A definitive feasibility study (“DFS”) and front-end engineering study (“FEED”) for phase 1A of the Lanxess Project commenced in September 2022. A preliminary feasibility study (“PFS”) of the South West Arkansas Project commenced in May 2022. The company is also pursuing the resource development of other projects in the Smackover Formation in east Texas, as well as approximately 45,000 acres of mineral leases located in the Mojave Desert in San Bernardino County, California.
