MGX Minerals Inc (CSE:XMG, OTCQB: MGXMF) updated on its lithium and petrolithium extraction and water treatment system (NFLi-5), saying a second wastewater treatment system have arrived from the pipe and metal fabricator.
This is the system scheduled to be installed at an oil and gas operation in Alberta to treat evaporator blowdown brine, said the firm and engineering partner Purlucid.
The system, capable of processing high salinity wastewater from SAGD operations, will remove colloidal and dissolved minerals for substantial water reuse, lower cost and reduced environmental liability.
The first system completed large-scale trials and client acceptance testing and is scheduled for deployment as soon as on-site preparations for installation of the system are completed.
PurLucid's water treatment technologies, which purify wastewater brine, have been integrated with a newly developed lithium recovery process.
The technology was recently chosen as winner of the base and specialty metals industry leadership award at the 2018 S&P Global Platts Global Metals Awards, held in London earlier this month.
