Pan American Energy, Integrity Mining and Industrial to pilot sustainable chemistry for lithium extraction in North America

March 16, 2023 |

In Canada, Pan American Energy said it has partnered with Integrity Mining and Industrial (IMI), a subsidiary of Integrity Bio-Chemicals, to collaborate on evaluating IMI’s suite of sustainable green chemistries to enhance lithium recovery from petalite bearing pegmatite, spodumene and lithium bearing clays. Pan American said it intends to share samples from its planned exploration programs at the Horizon Lithium and Big Mack properties with IMI for testing. Jason Latkowcer, CEO and Director at Pan American Energy, said: “Pan American’s alignment with IMI reflects our commitment to supporting more sustainable processes. As we move through our upcoming exploration programs, we intend to provide lithium bearing samples for testing by IMI’s floatation chemists and full team of research and development scientists at their innovation laboratory in Cresson, Texas. Our goal is to identify optimization opportunities across various lithium production processes that may benefit both the company and industry as a whole.” Integrity Mining and Industrial is a technology company focused on the development ofbio-based polymers and surfactants for a wide variety of applications. IMI said it has a wide range of clay control, depressants, frothers and water treatment reagents for use in the mining space. IMI’s biobased offerings are derived from naturally occurring elements that are sourced to prevent the use of extractive and non-renewable sources, it added.
