Cypress to start Clayton Valley lithium pilot plant

Cypress Development has built a pilot plant for its Clayton Valley lithium project in Nevada, USA with test extraction of lithium from sample material to begin shortly. The pilot plant will utilise chloride-based leaching combined with the Chemionex-Lionex process for direct lithium extraction (DLE).
