Cypress Completes Pilot Plant for Clayton Valley

Cypress Development Corp of Vancouver, BC has completed assembly of the pilot plant for its Clayton Valley Lithium Project in Nevada. The plant is located at a metallurgical facility about 100 miles south of the project.

Bill Willoughby, Cypress’ CEO, stated, “The completion of the pilot plant represents a significant milestone and marks the culmination of months of work by Cypress, our consultants, and contractors. This work, under the direction of Continental Metallurgical Services and supported by the management and personnel of del Sol Refining Inc, has resulted in a pilot plant that embodies the research that went into our process flowsheet. The testing ahead will be one of the larger piloting efforts to extract lithium from clay in the world, and the only one based on a chloride approach to leaching.”
