CALGARY — E3 Metals Corp., a lithium extraction technology innovator, has received a $98,798 grant from Alberta Innovates for a brine production project at the province’s Leduc Reservoir.
The money will help with funding of the project that will determine the development plan and costs. This work is being completed through a joint collaboration with Scovan Engineering Inc. and Fluid Domains Inc.

E3 Metals’ proprietary direct lithium extraction (DLE) technology is scaling up in collaboration with global lithium producer Livent Corp. The company said the technology allows the company to extract lithium from a brine resource at a faster production rate with higher recovery than others in the industry.

The company will be integrating its DLE technology with traditional oilfield methods using the drilling, reservoir and facilities expertise based in Alberta.

The work aligns with the Canada-US Joint Action Plan on Critical Minerals strategy, which secures supply chains for critical minerals needed for important sectors.

Calgary-based Scovan Engineering specializes in innovative and sustainable solutions for industrial, renewable and emerging energy projects. Fluid Domains is a hydrogeology consultancy based in Cochrane, Alta.
