Enertopia Corp (CNSX:TOP) said its partner Genesis Water Technologies has been performing system optimization tests on the various created synthetic brines over the last month.

All components during the optimization phase of testing have performed as expected.

Genesis (GWT) has been varying the amounts of source rock used in various solution makeups. These variables included rock-to-liquid ratios, source rock leach times and varying pH levels; pH levels refer to the amount of hydrogen ion concentration in a solution.

The created leach brine solutions will be tested independently in each of the process steps of the GWT Enerlet lithium recovery process.

Upon optimization of each process step, the created leach brine solutions will be processed through the entire GWT Enerlet process completely, Enertopia said. The finished lithium carbonate product will be dried and analyzed to meet the required battery grade purity.

Over the next several weeks, solutions will be run through the optimized process for final testing of lithium brine solutions and lithium carbonate finished product.

Testing to date has been on time and on budget, Enertopia said, and based on the remaining test time required and subsequent time for the independent third party labs to perform their testing analysis it is still expecting to have final third-party lab results by the end of May.

Meanwhile, Enertopia is still beavering away to unlock the value of the lithium-bearing rock at and near the surface at the Clayton Valley lithium project in the uplifted block along the eastern flank of Clayton Valley, Nevada.

It is currently compiling data for its first drill program. Other preliminary work includes the review of on-site or off-site processing of the material for the pilot plant and pilot plant location. Due to the excellent infrastructure in the area, the company has several options that are currently being explored, it said.
