Why Century Lithium

Advanced Stage

The Clayton Valley Lithium Project is in a prime location, in a favorable mining jurisdiction, has one of the largest lithium deposits in the USA, and a projected 40+ year mine-life. Century Lithium has completed a Feasibility Study on its Clayton Valley Lithium Project and is actively advancing the Project towards the permitting stage.


Having a large resource is not enough, one needs the ability to extract the lithium from the claystone. Century Lithium uses an innovative and sustainable chloride-based leach process to extract the lithium from the claystone coupled with Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) process via Li-PROTM from Koch Technology Solutions, followed by Saltworks Technologies' process to make battery grade lithium carbonate.


Century Lithium has one of the largest, fully permitted and active Lithium Extraction Facility (Pilot Plant) in North America. Material from the Project can be tested under various conditions, on a 24-hour per day basis, from one day to weeks at a time at a rate of one ton per day.


Water in Nevada is a limited resource, Century Lithium has acquired water rights in Clayton Valley which will provide a majority of the Project’s future water requirements. Anticipating future energy needs, Century Lithium has purchased a geothermal lease in Clayton Valley and is pursuing options for solar power generation near the Project.
