(PresseBox) - Millennial Lithium Corp. (ML: TSX.V) (A3N2:GR: Frankfurt) (MLNLF: OTCQB) (?Millennial? or the ?Company? - http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298600)> 99.5%

Millennial President and CEO, Farhad Abasov, commented:"We are excited that the bench scale process test work recently completed by SGS has yielded very positive results with a lithium carbonate product purity of 99.92%. Typical lithium carbonate battery grade for EV batteries is approximately 99.5% Li2CO3, so we are very encouraged by these results that suggest the Pastos Grandes brine is amenable to industry standard processing and capable of producing a battery grade product.

SGS has completed bench scale process trials on lithium-bearing brine from pumping well PGPW17-4 at Pastos Grandes.

SGS subjected the brine to liming followed by mechanical evaporation over several weeks and further removal of Ca and Mg via selective precipitation through the introduction of soda ash and caustic soda.on process has a purity of 99.92% Li2CO3; additional chemical data for the final product is provided below in Table 2.

Recovery of lithium through the primary lithium carbonate process was approximately 75% from the B-free solution and recovery through the bicarbonation/decomposition stage was approximately 74% of the lithium carbonate treated, however lithium losses are generally minimal in the process overall, as the lithium remaining in the mother liquor solution is typically recycled.

In addition to the promising purity of the lithium carbonate produced, it is also encouraging that metals and other impurities, some of which can affect the quality and effectiveness of the lithium carbonate for battery performance, are very low to not detectable.

Sampling was conducted in accordance with CIM guidelines for brine resource evaluation, with an appropriate chain of custody and QA/QC program in place for ensuring veracity, accuracy and precision of the analytical results.
