Webinar Synopsis

The NEBC Lithium Formation Water Database joint study, conducted by Canadian Discovery and Matrix Solutions Inc. for Geoscience BC, strives to deliver a lithium and other dissolved minerals and metals brine database through a large-scale sampling program undertaken in northeastern British Columbia. No such research has previously been conducted in NEBC despite similar, and in some respects more favourable, geologic conditions for the emplacement of lithium-enriched brines than in neighbouring Alberta and Saskatchewan. Don't miss out on the chance to explore the exciting findings with Canadian Discovery Executive Chairman, Kaush Rakhit and Geoscience BC Manager, Energy and Water Randy Hughes in this exclusive webinar.
