Project Site Location



The transition to high-performance lithium batteries for transportation and energy storage applications promises to deliver numerous environmental benefits.  To maximize those benefits and satisfy growing consumer demand, resourcing key material inputs must utilize best environmental practices and processes. 

  • The Project requires only 12 hectares in total land.

  • CO2 emissions are the lowest of any lithium resource type.

  • Low solid generation rates with beneficial co-products possible.
