Anson recently received further encouraging results from evaporation test work on a sample taken from the re-opened Cane Creek 32-1 well.

The objective of the test work was to assess the change in lithium concentration if evaporation was used to precipitate unwanted salts from the brine as a pre-processing step.

Encouraging test results

Anson’s managing director Bruce Richardson said that the unexpected results of the evaporation test work using heat were very encouraging for the success of the project.

“The rapid precipitation of the salts from the brine and the resulting increase in lithium concentration in the brine should provide improved feed for the production plant resulting in improved productivity.”
