Abstract
By extracting lithium from geothermal brine, California has an opportunity to become a global-scale producer of the most sustainably sourced lithium while providing an important cornerstone in achieving California‚Äôs clean energy goals. Salton Sea Geothermal Field brines present unique challenges and opportunities.  EnergySource Minerals is leading the effort to build the first commercial lithium project on geothermal brines. The discussion will cover attributes of the brine resource, lithium recovering technology, and project execution.
