Volt Lithium Corp. is a lithium development and technology company aiming to be North America’s first commercial producer of lithium hydroxide and lithium carbonates from oilfield brine.

Unique Features

  • ~430,000 acres of permitted land in Rainbow Lake, Alberta
  • Robust lithium reservoir with an estimated 99.0 Billion Barrels of lithium infused brine with concentrations up to 121 mg/L
  • Proprietary Direct Lithium Extraction (“DLE”) technology provides leading lithium recoveries of up to 90% with low costs
  • Partnered with established oil & gas producer owning $100MM of infrastructure + already producing lithium-infused brine and chemical company partner has lithium extraction expertise
  • Commercial production expected in second half of 2024
  • Volt shares listed:

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, lowering risks and supporting the world’s clean energy transition.

Milestones to Success

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).

The clean energy transition strains supply 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 vs. Supply
(2015 – 2030)

  • Demand for lithium is rising as electric vehicles and renewable energy continue to gain ground.
  • Market faces insufficient lithium supply to meet demand for expanding EV revolution.
  • The most critical inputs in race to electrify the globe are lithium, copper and graphite.
