March 27, 2017 – Voltaic Minerals Corp. (TSXV: VLT, FSE: 2P61) (the “Company” or “Voltaic”) is pleased to announce that it has formally engaged Stormcrow Capital Ltd. (“Stormcrow”) to provide strategic, technical and business support services to the Company. Stormcrow is an exempt market dealer headquartered in Toronto, Canada.
Stormcrow Capital Ltd. will provide the Company strategic introductions relating to financing and partnerships for the Green Energy Lithium Project in Utah as well as the lithium selective extraction process. Stormcrow will also provide Voltaic with independent technical analysis and advice relating directly to the development of the lithium selective extraction process. Dr. Jon Hykawy, President Stormcrow Capital Ltd., comments on the engagement, “As global demand for lithium continues to increase, and the desire for battery-pack cost reductions continues to grow, the need for sufficient, inexpensive supplies of commodities such as lithium has never been more obvious. Batteries are not electronics and as such the cost of batteries is ultimately going to be dependent on the cost of the raw materials that go into them. We are thrilled to be working with Voltaic Minerals Corp., which holds the promise of an inexpensive new source of lithium supply from unconventional brines.”
