Edison Lithium: Transitioning to Sodium-ion Battery Technology

Edison Lithium (TSXV:EDDY) is pivoting towards sodium-ion battery technology while maintaining interests in lithium assets in Argentina. The company is divesting its cobalt projects in Canada via a spin-off into a new publicly listed company, Edison Cobalt. After the spin-off, Edison Lithium will comprise two divisions: Edison Saskatchewan and Edison Lithium.

Edison Saskatchewan will focus on advancing the company’s ambition to become a significant participant in the sodium-ion battery technology supply chain. The company acquired four alkali dispositions from Globex Mining Enterprises in August 2023 that encompass 4,564 acres located in Ceylon Lake, Freefight Lake, and the north and south areas of Cabri Lake, in Saskatchewan, Canada.

The Edison Lithium division comprises nearly 28,766 hectares of lithium brine claims located in Catamarca, Argentina. Edison Lithium retains eight mining claims, mostly located in the Pipanaco Solar basin in Catamarca.
