Frontier Lithium To Build Demonstration Plant For Battery Metals Products


Date: Apr 03, 2019

Canadian junior Frontier Lithium (TSX-V: FL) has kicked off the first phase of development at its PAK lithium asset, aimed at confirming the project’s economic viability through the construction and operation of a Demonstration Concentrator Plant that will produce multiple products for the industrial and battery markets.

The plant is expected to produce up to 15,000 tonnes of lithium concentrate (spodumene) per year from samples taken at the PAK deposit, located in what the company calls “Electric Avenue” — a “newly emerging, premium lithium-metal district,” hosted in the Canadian Shield of northwestern Ontario.

The samples from PAK, which contain up to 4.5% lithium oxide (Li2O), will be processed via gravity, heavy media, flotation and magnetic processes with a range of spodumene concentrates from 6.0 to 7.2% Li2O.

Construction of the plant will begin in the next 12-20 months, providing related permits and financing are confirmed, Frontier Lithium said.
