Volt Lithium Corp. is a lithium development and technology company that is on track to become North America’s first commercial producer of lithium from oilfield brine.

Unique Features

  • Proven and proprietary capability to extract commercially-viable quantities of marketable lithium from brines produced at various oilfields across North America. In-house capability to produce lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide monohydrate
  • Field unit operations planned in Q3 2024 in partnership with a major operator in the Permian Basin (Delaware Basin)
  • All-in extraction and operating costs below US$2,900 per tonne LCE, supporting robust margins even within a volatile lithium price environment
  • Active Field Simulation Centre leveraging proprietary DLE technology to test oilfield brines from across North America

Our Strategy

Our strategy is to generate value for shareholders by leveraging management’s hydrocarbon experience and existing infrastructure to extract lithium deposits from existing wells, thereby reducing capital costs and lowering risks.

Operational Process for Permian Basin (Delaware Basin) Field Operations

Lithium 101

Lithium-ion batteries are used in a wide range of applications, including electric vehicles, renewable energy storage systems, and portable electronic devices (smartphones and laptops).

Supply strains for lithium

  • Highly Reactive
    Highly reactive metal for power storage and regeneration in batteries
  • Efficient Metal
    The lightest metal, with density half that of water, and a low melting and boiling point

Lithium hydroxide and lithium carbonate have different industrial uses based on their chemical properties

  • Lithium hydroxide
    Primarily used in the production of lithium-ion batteries, as well as in nuclear reactors, lubricants, and as a carbon dioxide absorbent in space capsules.
  • Lithium carbonate
    A raw material used in the production of lithium-ion batteries, and also serves as a flux in the production of ceramics, glass, and aluminum.

Lithium demand is forecast to be 40x today's levels by 20302

  • EV Battery Quota
    ‘Big auto’ plans to spend trillions of dollars in an effort to meet EV battery quota by 20301
  • Robust Economic Outlook
    Unmet supply for battery metals provides robust economic outlook and supports business model
  • Government Subsidies
    Governments are spending billions on EV charging infrastructure and subsidies to incentivize consumers to switch to hybrids and EV’s (3)

Lithium Demand Growth

  • Electric Vehicles (EVs) and battery capacity expansion are fueling robust demand growth
  • Battery manufacturers and automakers are competing to strike long-term contracts with miners and refiners
  • The time is now to secure future sources of lithium and diversify global supply chains
