Event Category:
Lecture Room 407, Boyd Orr Building
University Avenue
Glasgow, G12 8QW United Kingdom

Dr Rebecca Paisley, Exploration Geochemist, Cornish Lithium

Cornish Lithium is an innovative, eco-technology company focused on mineral exploration and development for the environmentally sustainable extraction of lithium in the historic mining district of Cornwall, UK. The company has secured agreements with the owners of mineral rights over a large area of the county and is using modern technology to re-evaluate the region for lithium and other technology metals which are essential components of modern life. A secure domestic supply of such metals is considered vital to the industrial strategy of the UK as it moves towards a zero-carbon future.

Rebecca is the Lead Geochemist for Cornish Lithium., She holds a PhD in Earth & Planetary Sciences from McGill University, Canada, and a master’s degree in Earth Sciences from the University of Oxford, UK. She specialises in using geochemical data to constrain sub-surfaces processes in a variety of geological environments. Rebecca joined Cornish Lithium to assist with developing the geochemical side of their exploration efforts, and currently designs and implements the geothermal waters sampling strategies for their drill programs. She also manages Cornish Lithium’s direct lithium extraction (DLE) work package, evaluating different technologies and their abilities to process Cornish geothermal fluids.

This will be a remote talk. The speaker will be ‘on-screen’ in the lecture theatre and attendees can interact with the speaker from the lecture theatre. We will be recording the talk for later viewing but in order to maximise in-person attendence and minimise the technology issues we are not offering live online access to the talk.
