About Pure Energy Minerals Limited
Pure Energy Minerals is a lithium resource developer that is driven to become a low-cost supplier for the growing lithium battery industry. Pure Energy has consolidated a pre-eminent land position at its CV Project in the Clayton Valley of central Nevada for the exploration and development of lithium resources, comprising 948 claims over 23,360 acres (9,450 hectares), representing the largest mineral land holdings in the valley. Pure Energy’s CV Project adjoins and surrounds on three sides the Silver Peak lithium brine mine operated by Albemarle Corporation.
The Company has completed a Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) for the CV Project (news releases of June 26, 2017 and April 5, 2018) which includes an updated resource calculation and a preliminary economic evaluation. The Company and its technical consultants have also completed the basic design for the proposed pilot plant (news release of May 31, 2018). The lithium-bearing brines identified at the CV Project are of high quality with very low impurity levels, and have been shown by small scale pumping tests to be amenable to conventional extraction. Pure Energy has received a finite-term water right permit from the Nevada Department of Water Resources (“NDWR”) which is sufficient for construction and operation of the envisioned pilot plant and testing of brines (news release of January 3, 2019).
