The SiLeach® processing technology can increase project economics

Lithium Australia NL (ASX:LIT) has completed its maiden drilling program at the Sadisdorf polymetallic tin-lithium project in Saxony, Germany.

The three hole, 560-metre diamond drilling program commenced in mid-December 2017 and was completed last week.

The program was designed to validate historical drilling data and increase confidence in future mineral resource estimates.

Down-hole surveys planned and assays pending

Down-hole geophysical surveys were planned for the two days following completion.

Completion of sampling and assaying of the remaining core will be a priority over April and May.

A further update from Sadisdorf is expected including assay results from the completed drill program in coming weeks.

Potential for a commercial scale SiLeach® lithium carbonate plant

Lithium Australia is farming into a joint venture at Sadisdorf with German company Tin International AG.

Sadisdorf has the potential to provide feed to a commercial scale SiLeach® lithium carbonate plant.

Furthermore, it is located on the doorstep of the German automotive industry, which is rapidly gearing up to produce large numbers of electric vehicles.

Partner Tin International AG had previously defined an Inferred JORC resource of 3.36 million tonnes grading 0.44% tin.

In mid-December 2017, Lithium Australia revealed an Inferred JORC resource of 25 million tonnes grading 0.45% lithium oxide.

Lithium Australia’s SiLeach® processing technology is suited to unlocking the lithium value of historical silicate deposits such as Sadisdorf.

Over in Western Australia, Lithium Australia is in the final stages of advancing its large-scale SiLeach® pilot plant and is assessing feed sources for the first 12 months of operation.

Significantly, the Lepidolite Hill lithium deposit, which Lithium Australia has an 80% share in, is emerging as a potentially valuable feed option.

The company’s SiLeach® processing technology is in the process of being commercialised through the large-scale SiLeach® pilot plant.
