SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Jan 9, 2014) - Lithium Exploration Group Inc. (OTCQB: LEXG) announced today that, once demonstration testing for water purification is completed in Houston, TX, a demonstration of the technology's oil upgrading capabilities will take place at one of Lithium Exploration Group's disposal facilities in Canada.
"This technology's application for hydrocarbon upgrading has a huge addressable need both in the US and in Canada," commented CEO Alex Walsh. "Our partners at GD Glottech International Ltd. have decided to carry out this next phase of the testing in Canada because our disposal facilities already deal with oil as it is skimmed from the waste water. We have the required regulatory approvals, insurances, and facilities to test the hydrocarbon capabilities, which makes it a great place to test in a private and controlled environment."
