Cypress Development (CYP) has produced 99.94 per cent lithium carbonate (Li2CO3) made from lithium-bearing claystone from Clayton Valley Lithium Project in Nevada.

The Li2COwas derived from the intermediate concentrated lithium solution produced at Cypress’ Lithium Extraction Facility in Amargosa Valley, Nevada (Pilot Plant). Following direct lithium extraction (DLE) at the plant, Saltworks Technologies completes the processing system design and pilot work to make the Li2CO3.

Pilot operations show production of ‘three nines’ Li2COthat exceed standard battery grade specifications below. All processing was completed with material from the company’s project in an end-to-end automated pilot plant that represents full-scale production. Independent analyses of product samples were completed by SGS Canada, with the results showing greater than 99.9 weight-percent (wt%) purity in a scalable representative process.

The final product surpasses industry requirements for standard battery grade Li2CO3 and has achieved industry requirements for enhanced battery grade Li2CO3 for xEV use. It is common practice for lithium battery manufacturers to have specific requirements for Li2CO3 used in their products depending on the application.

Daniel Kalmbach, CPG, is the qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and has approved the technical information in this release.

Cypress Development (CYP) is a Canadian-based advanced-stage lithium company focused on developing its 100%-owned Clayton Valley Lithium Project in Nevada, USA.

Cypress Development (CYP) is up today, trading at C$1.40 as of Sep 19, 4:28 pm ET.
