The Ontario government announced Wednesday it would invest $363,000 in Frontier Lithium Inc. in order to help the Sudbury-based mining company demonstrate its newly developed proprietary lithium extraction process, which is designed to overcome certain financial, technical, and environmental risks associated with conventional lithium processing. The investment is also designed to highlight Ontario’s significant potential for mineral development and promote economic growth in Northern Ontario. Should a successful demonstration lead to the foundation of a commercial-scale lithium chemical plant, that project could potentially create 500 jobs during a two-year construction phase and more than 250 once a plant is operational. “We are investing in innovative mining and refining technology developed right here in northern Ontario” Greg Rickford, Ontario Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines.
