Sienna Resources Inc (CVE: SIE), which has acquired the Esmeralda project in Clayton Valley, Nevada, says it will be presenting at the preeminent lithium conference in the world later this month.
The eighth annual Industrial Mineral Events Lithium Supply and Market Conference will be staged in Las Vegas between May 24 and 26.
Las Vegas is close to Tesla's highly anticipated gigafactory as well as numerous lithium mine projects in Nevada, the firm noted.
"Despite falling prices for a range of commodities in 2015, the lithium market has stayed positive. Moving into 2016, upward price pressure is expected to continue with supplies looking tight and demand set to keep increasing."
Sienna president Jason Gigliotti told investors: "This forum will bring together the majority of the global industry leaders in the space and we are pleased to be able to properly position the Sienna story within this fast growing sector of the resource world.
"Management will be able to sit down directly with fund managers, individual investors, regional geological and hydrological experts and other like-minded company managers."
Sienna's new prospect directly borders Lithium X Energy Corp and is in direct vicinity of Pure Energy Minerals Limited and Albemarle in the Clayton Valley which is the primary address for lithium brines in North America.
Last month the group said it was planning to commence operations shortly and management has a renewed focus at a time we feel the junior market is in the early stages of significant recovery.
Clayton Valley is one of the few locations to contain commercial-grade lithium-enriched brine and recently Pure Energy Minerals Limited (CVE: PE) signed a supply agreement with Tesla to potentially supply lithium hydroxide from its deposit.
