:: Lithium Australia Advances with Processing Hub in Western Australia


Lithium Australia has developed a long-term strategy for the establishment of a lithium processing hub in Western Australia.

The initial location preference is Port Hedland given the proximity to infrastructure and the Pilgangoora lithium region.

LIT recently announced funding initiatives with Federal Government Business Innovation Grant and Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia (MRIWA) - important parts of the strategy to commercialise LIT’s Sileach™ process.

LIT's managing director, Adrian Griffin commented: “LIT’s point of difference with all other lithium companies is the ability to recover lithium from spodumene without the requirement for the extraordinary expense of roasting.

The company’s proprietary Sileach™ process has the flexibility to process any lithium bearing silicates. If our application is successful, the MRIWA grant will enable the commercialization of the Sileach™ process to be accelerated through to large-scale piloting.”
