Standard Lithium Ltd. (SLI) has announced its strategic position in Arkansas’s Smackover Formation, a key U.S. lithium region. The company’s high-grade lithium brine resources, the highest in North America, are set to meet the critical mineral needs of the United States. With partnerships including Koch Industries and LANXESS, Standard Lithium is at the forefront of energy innovation.
CEO Robert Mintak emphasizes the company’s readiness to support domestic demand with its Phase 1A and South West Arkansas Projects, starting in 2026 and 2027. The expansion into East Texas’s Smackover Formation has yielded three new wells with significant lithium concentrations, averaging 644 mg/L. This marks a strategic move towards a global scale resource.
Standard Lithium’s commitment to sustainable development is evident in its focus on Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) and purification processes. The company’s projects in southern Arkansas and East Texas leverage the region’s established brine processing industry, aiming for commercial-scale lithium production.
With listings on the TSX Venture Exchange, NYSE American, and Frankfurt Stock Exchange under ‘SLI’, Standard Lithium is poised to become a leader in the U.S. lithium market. For more information, visit the company’s website (URL omitted).
