E3 Metals Corp Signs Collaboration Agreement with the University of Alberta to Develop Technologies for Lithium Extraction

E3 Metals Corp. announced that it has signed a collaboration agreement with the University of Alberta for the purpose of developing lithium extraction process technology. The goal of this collaboration is to develop a cost-effective technology to extract lithium from brines, specifically the lithium-enriched Petro-Brines present within the company's permit areas. E3 Metals will be working directly with Dr. Daniel Alessi, Assistant Professor, and Dr. Salman Safari, Postdoctoral Fellow. Dr. Alessi is an Assistant Professor of geochemistry in the Faculty of Science at the U of A and is the Encana Chair in Water Resources. After completing his PhD at the University of Notre Dame in geochemistry, Dr. Alessi worked at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in the field of environmental microbiology, and then joined the University of Alberta in 2013. The Alessi Laboratory at the U of A investigates several important aspects of applied geochemistry to reduce risk and improve costs in environmental remediation and hydraulic fracturing. Now, through this collaboration, lithium extraction will be added to the impressive list of endeavors at the Alessi Laboratory.
