E3 LITHIUM LTD. (TSXV: ETL) (FSE: OW3) (OTCQX: EEMMF), “E3 Lithium” or the “Company,” a leader in Canadian lithium, is pleased to announce recent additions to its team to help progress towards commercializing the Clearwater Project and share its upcoming presentation schedule.

Since the beginning of 2024, E3 Lithium has expanded its subsurface team, welcoming a new senior reservoir engineer and transitioning a former E3 Lithium lab employee, who spent the last two years working on Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) technology and is a Geoscientist in Training, to the team to support resource development. The Company has also welcomed three new employees to corporate functions, including a new executive assistant and head of staff, a financial accountant and a marketing and digital communications specialist, all of whom will help steward the Company’s growth and achievement of upcoming catalysts.

“The new additions to the E3 Lithium team, along with the expertise and experience they bring, will make a significant impact on our key focus areas in 2024,” said Chris Doornbos, President and CEO of E3 Lithium. “The milestones we achieve this year, including progressing advanced engineering studies, will outline how lithium will be produced commercially in Alberta and advance us toward operations. Continuing to build the team that will deliver these important pieces of work will allow us to accelerate our development.”
