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. It cleans itself, doesn't stick, and has a built-in solids management system. Saltworks has two factories in Canada, about 40 patents, and its shareholders include British Petroleum, ConocoPhillips and Teck Resources.

Levon Resources Ltd. (TSX: LVN) is exploring one of the world's largest silver resources at the company's 100%-owned Cordero Project in northwest Mexico. We learned from Ron Tremblay, President and Chief Executive Officer of Levon Resources, that they recently announced a 30% increase in the resource, which is now one and three-quarter billion silver ounce equivalent and a PEA, which is giving them a net present value just under $400 million. According to Mr. Tremblay, silver prices should go up, following gold’s upward movement. Levon plans to grow the resource even bigger and to improve the grade as well. Mr. Tremblay believes that the company has lots of upside potential and is way undervalued compared to some of their peers.
