Anson is aiming to raise $3 million for product qualification testing and marketing

Anson Resources Ltd (ASX:ASN) has completed exploration drilling at its Paradox Brine project in Utah, USA, and is now focusing on the production of lithium carbonate chemical samples for product qualification testing and for marketing to battery cathode manufacturers.

The production of lithium carbonate chemical samples is being managed by Anson’s recently appointed director and technical advisor Alexander Grant, who is co-founder of Anson’s lithium extraction partner, Lilac Solutions Inc.

Following the extraction of lithium in eluate form by Lilac, further downstream processing will be undertaken to produce lithium carbonate chemicals for the next phase — product qualification testing and for marketing to battery cathode manufacturers.
