The Lilac Solutions Direct Extraction plant is on-track to be operational at the Kachi Lithium project by late 2019, targeting rapid, low-cost lithium production with high recoveries and minimal environmental impact. First steps towards pilot plant testing with design and engineering are underway at Lake’s Kachi Lithium Project, Argentina based on the high-productivity, high-purity Lilac Solutions direct extraction technology.
Argentine-focused lithium exploration and project development company Lake Resources NL announced that its plans for a low-cost, rapid production lithium mine with significantly high lithium recoveries have received a boost, following the results of a Phase 1 Engineering Study conducted by California-based Lilac Solutions, Inc.

“Lilac dramatically decreases the volumes of reagents that need to be trucked in, so we can unlock resources in remote locations. On top of this, our technology is modular so the physical footprint of our facilities is approximately 1,000 times smaller than conventional lithium brine projects using evaporation ponds”
