Saltworks Developed and Commercialized Technology for Lithium Mining and Processing Companies, Interview with Ben Sparrow, CEO of Saltworks Technologies Incorporated
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

We interviewed Ben Sparrow, CEO of Saltworks Technologies Incorporated, a Canadian industrial desalination and advanced water-treatment Company. Saltworks developed and commercialized a technology that can help lithium mining and processing companies extract lithium from brine more economically. We learned from Mr. Sparrow that they developed a chemical softening robot that is much more compact, much more precise, easier to use and automated, compared to standard reverse osmosis systems. At the membrane treatment step, Saltworks developed the ability to remove and manipulate ions in water selectively and they created special membranes that can selectively pull lithium away from calcium or magnesium. Saltworks also created membranes tolerant to oil and gas, where they can desalt oil and gas produced water. At the thermal treatment step, Saltworks built a more reliable evaporative crystallizer made out of fiberglass so it doesn't rust.

by Allen Alper, Jr., President, Metals News

Mirasol Resources Ltd. (TSXV: MRZ, OTCPK: MRZLF) is a premier gold/silver/copper project generator focused on the next discovery in Chile and Argentina. We learned from Stephen Nano, Director, President and CEO of Mirasol Resources, that the company's objective is to discover a world-class mineral deposit. Mirasol uses leading edge geoscience to identify and secure a large portfolio of 100% owned mineral properties that haven't been sampled or drill-tested before. In the last 12 months, Mirasol did four new deals, two of them with Newcrest Mining, in Chile, and two of them with OceanaGold in Argentina. The company and its joint venture partners are evaluating, and planning exploration and drilling programs on its joint venture projects and with CAD 25 million in the bank, Mirasol is also planning to drill two very high-grade, gold-silver projects in Argentina, starting in the spring and summer months of this year (in the southern hemisphere). Rick Rule personally owns a significant position in Mirasol. Combined with Sprott, they own about 10% of Mirasol's issued capital. A really important thing about Mirasol, according to Mr. Nano, is that they are one of the few project generators out there that have gone from a grassroots discovery, with a joint venture partner, all the way through to the sale of the project.
