Good governance will ensure the Board of Directors and Management conduct its business affairs and carry out overall responsibilities by providing accountability, transparency and sound decision making and also key components to ensure that the interests of the Company and its stakeholders are properly aligned.
Kess Energy’s corporate governance framework outlines the Board and its Committees responsibility and is regularly reviewed to ensure compliance and best practices.
Environmental Policy
In the “lithium triangle” in South America (Argentina, Chile, Brazil), lithium is extracted from brine which comes with environmental challenges such as the use of a significant amount of water, which in turn limits how much lithium can be extracted sustainably.
After resource concentration, the lithium-bearing material is sent to be processed by cathode active material (CAM) producers and ultimately into lithium ion batteries. The downside of this is that energy used is heavily dependent on fossil fuels and the supply chain from South America to China and then to Europe is among the longest on the planet.
Kess Energy, with the help of global energy innovators, has developed an innovative best-in-class sustainable technology to economically extract lithium. At Kess Energy, we believe our lithium project can have the best environmental performance of any lithium producer in the world, because:
Our project is based on a site that needs remediating; when completed the project site will be returned to a far better condition than it is today.
Recent development of electric- and hydrogen-based mobile plant will allow for off-peak charging and emission-free mining.
Specifically located mines and refinery to minimise haulage distances.
Beneficiation by our patent-pending physical process gives higher recovery than other methods without the use of any chemicals.
Our process uses a single calcine at significantly lower temperatures than required for spodumene-based processes, and research is being completed to do this using green energy.
Our leach will take place at neutral pH without the need for a second roast, or the creation of acidic waste products.
Our principal reagent will be recycled using our patented technology.
We will use sustainable, local solar and wind generated energy.
Kess Energy subscribes to a sustainability framework and is committed to sustainable development and risk management. The Sustainability Framework comprises of global policies and performance standards on environmental and social sustainability.


Enabling Lithium Metal Battery Technology. From the Ground to the Battery
Soledade Lithium Mines Brazil
Large scale Lithium exploration Projects in highly prospective locations
Historic Mines
Soledade permits cover historic artisanal mining sites previously mined for lithium, Coltan and tin
Over 20 historical small-scale mines have been identified in field exploration. Mining was only undertaken to less than 10 meters vertical depth due to restrictions of hard pegmatite material requiring blasting.
Large-scale opportunity, Significantly underexplored
8 permits covering 114km2 highly prospective ground
Detailed field mapping by a Brazilian subsidiary that has identified an approximate 20km outcropping mineralized Pegmatite corridor within the holding
Regional geological review of the Soledade Pegmatites was completed in 2012 by the government Geological Survey DNPN. Analytical results (XRD) confirmed Lepidolite, Amblygonite and Spodumene being the main Li-Minerals.
First pass soil geochemistry (400m x 400m grids) highlights residual soil anomalies within interpreted mineralization corridor
Outcrop grab samples confirm mineralized pegmatites with high grade lithium, tin, tantalum and niobium
Ideal project location
One of 2 historical lithium mining regions in Brazil
The second known lithium region in Brazil is in the state of Minas Gerais where TSX and Nasdaq listed Sigma Lithium Corp ( CAD$1.4 billion market cap.) is developing the Grota do Cirilo Lithium Project


Our project has outstanding scale, a long life and is a low-cost operation over the project life. It produces high quality products, is supported by strong and reliable customers and an outstanding team. Our growth and diversification strategy means we are well positioned for future growth.

Lithium Demand

The only way is up for lithium demand. Electric vehicle (EV) demand will continue to drive the lithium market forward: EV penetration will reach 15% in 2025, and we expect to see it rise to around 35% by 2030. Add to that mix growing demand from applications such as energy storage systems (ESS), 5G devices, and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure.

The main takeaway here is that the EV market faces many decades of strong, compound growth. For any supply chain that relies on getting raw materials out of the ground, it is going to be a supreme challenge to keep up with year after year of high compound growth.

For example, 25% growth on 300,000 tonnes LCE, means an extra 75,000 LCE is needed the following year and the year after that an extra 93,750 tonnes, on top of the previous year’s 75,000 tonnes, is needed. And, in this example we are only talking 25% CAGR, but growth in the early years could be a lot faster.

Price History of Lithium

Two factors determine the price of lithium, and first we need to consider abundance. There’s only as limited supply of this element, because it only makes up 0.0007 percent of the Earth’s crust. Brazil produces a vast amount of the element for the world market. In the US you can only find a single mine in the whole country. It doesn’t occur naturally in elemental form, either.

What these things all mean is that the demand for lithium-ion batteries will rise even further. The price of lithium carbonate is up by 47% from 2015 and the year 2017 will see increased sales of pure electric cars. Add the fact that Li-ion batteries are also used for mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other wearable devices, and the demand for the commodity will surely increase as well.

Why Kess Energy?

Supportive long-term lithium fundamentals

The energy storage revolution is generating high demand for lithium, with some analysts forecasting demand increases. Battery giants are scaling up lithium-ion production with mega factories and actively acquiring raw materials through long-term offtake agreements.

Expert team with the right incentives

Our research & development has been developed over more than a decade and is rich with the accumulated experience of our our team. Our international experts are highly experienced employees with years of knowledge in mineral exploration, resource development and resource Geology.
