About Voltaic Minerals Corp.
Voltaic Minerals Corp. is a Vancouver-based lithium exploration company which owns 100% of the Green Energy Lithium Project that encompasses 4,160 acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) claims and is located in Grand County, 15 km west of the city of Moab. Lithium and other minerals occur at the project in an over-saturated brine (40% minerals, 60% water) discovered during oil exploration when drill wells intercepted Clastic Bed #31 of the Paradox formation.
Voltaic Minerals Corp. is also commencing process development and optimization using a Lithium Selective technique developed by Enertrex Corp. in accordance to a signed MOU agreement announced October 31, 2016. The Selective technique varies from traditional solar evaporation methods and has the potential to revolutionize Lithium processing as it stands today. The Lithium Selective technique could have the potential to efficiently process Lithium-bearing brines of differing metallurgy from various sources.
