Pilot plant in operation at ANSTO Minerals.

A 24-hour commissioning run of the Sileach™ circuit is planned to commence 16th December on spodumene concentrates supplied by Pilbara Minerals (ASX:PLS), as part of LIT and PLS’s joint efforts toward commercialisation of Sileach™ on Pilgangoora concentrates.

Further continuous piloting operations are planned for January 2017.

Adrian Griffin for Lithium Australia, commented: “Sileach is the only hydrometallurgical process capable of recovering lithium from spodumene.

"The ability to achieve that without roasting, is a big step forward for Lithium Australia, and more broadly, the lithium industry.

"The escalating availability of spodumene concentrates makes efficient processing of such material an environmental imperative for the energy revolution and we believe Sileach is the solution."
