CALGARY, Alberta -- 

E3 LITHIUM LTD. (TSXV: ETL) (FSE: OW3) (OTCQX: EEMMF), “E3 Lithium” or the “Company,” Alberta’s leading lithium developer and extraction technology innovator, is pleased to provide a summary of its successes in 2023 and outline its plans for growth across all aspects of its business in 2024.

“We set ambitious targets for ourselves in 2023 to advance our technology and our business; we have succeeded in accomplishing every milestone,” said Chris Doornbos, President and CEO. “The results we demonstrated in 2023 will continue to enable the completion of our PFS as we move into 2024. With the design of the commercial facility solidified, E3 can then contemplate a variety of growth and value creation opportunities on the back of our industry-leading resource and demonstrated DLE process.”

2023 Achievements

In March, E3 Lithium outlined its goals for 2023 focused on upgrading its resource, executing its field pilot plant, producing battery-grade lithium and advancing its PFS. E3 Lithium has steadily delivered against its targets, creating a strong foundation to deliver more growth in 2024. In 2023, the Company:

“The team at E3 is very excited about what’s in store for 2024. The work this year demonstrated significant technical success on all levels and built a strong foundation from which we can execute another year of ambitious growth plans,” said Chris Doornbos. “We are a global lithium leader and will continue to aggressively bring our plans for producing reliable, high ESG lithium in North America to life. I’d like to thank our shareholders and supporters for their championing of the Company in 2023.”

2024 Growth Plans

In the first part of 2024, E3 Lithium looks to progress all aspects of its business towards delivering its first commercial facility. Detailed guidance will be available in the New Year to outline the full year’s deliverables:

  • Reservoir development: Among other reservoir development activities, E3 Lithium looks forward to booking Canada’s first lithium-in-brine reserves in 2024 as part of the PFS.
  • DLE advancement: The Company is continuing with DLE testing and analysis and will select the technology for its first commercial facility. This selection will be based on technical performance, economics and commercial readiness.
  • Downstream flowsheet progression: In 2024, E3 Lithium plans to announce its selection of an established lithium refining vendor and continue to progress flowsheet development, production of LHM and relationship-building with potential off-takers.
  • PFS completion: E3 Lithium aims to release its NI 43-101, the national standard PFS document, in the first part of 2024. This report will outline the engineering and design details for the first commercial facility, including plant capacity, and will include an updated schedule and Class IV cost estimate. The Company will kick off the regulatory and permitting processes necessary to move to construction of the commercial facility.
  • Commercial activities: The Company plans to expand its team to support the increase in its commercial activities and the opportunities post the success of the PFS.

2024 Guidance and Company Webinar

Early in 2024, E3 Lithium will provide detailed guidance of its plans for the year and the milestones shareholders and other important stakeholders can expect the Company to deliver. Interested parties will be invited to hear more about these plans via a webinar with Chris Doornbos, President and CEO.
