The lithium market has received a boost in recent years as the mineral, and its applications as an energy source in lithium-ion batteries is now playing a more prominent role as a legitimate energy source. The arrival of sophisticated electric vehicles, which use lithium batteries has changed the game. A research report published by TechNavio projects that the global Li-ion battery market to grow at a CAGR of 15.43% during the period 2016-2020, in large thanks to demand for high power applications such as hybrid electric vehicle (HEVs), electric vehicles (EV), and consumer electronic devices. Zadar Ventures Ltd. (OTC: ZADDF) (TSX-V: ZAD), Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG), Lithium Americas Corp. (OTC: LACDF), Lithium X Energy Corp. (OTC: LIXXF), Pure Energy Minerals Ltd. (OTC: PEMIF)
The report points out that Li-ion batteries have a good electrochemical performance with low resistance. The advantage of using Li-ion batteries is that they increase the thermal stability, have higher current density, and a longer shelf life as compared with other batteries available in the market. The technology behind the batteries' efficiency has deep-discharge cycle life that shields the battery from damage.
Zadar Ventures Ltd.

Manitoba is a jurisdiction well-known for its oil production in the southeast section of the Province and historic lithium production in east central Manitoba at the Tanco Mine at Bernic Lake, Manitoba.In an effort to quickly assess the value potential of these prospective petrobrine lands, the Company plans to initiate testing waste water from the producing oil wells in the area of these claim applications within the next several weeks."
Company President Paul D. Gray, P.Geo. commented, "We are excited to get involved in a new area of lithium exploration in well-established petroleum production basins. The demand for low-cost lithium production in stable jurisdictions is going to be the key driver in the ever-growing energy storage space. These Manitoba petrobrine fields offer a rare opportunity to leverage on the existing handling of saline waters potentially enriched in lithium at surface, and Zadar will be determining if this is an economically viable opportunity."
