Initial test work earlier in 2019 recovered 70% of the bromine, 89% of the iodine, and 89% of the boron.
The next stage of test work is focused on the extraction and recovery of bromine, which Anson has appointed De Dietrich Process Systems to perform.
The work includes the estimation of the operating and capital costs for commercial plant which is intended to be incorporated into future feasibility studies.
While Anson investigates adding value to a future mining operation at Paradox through the extraction of additional chemicals, it is progressing its core lithium carbonate strategy.
Recently, the company delivered its first sample of lithium carbonate to a cathode producer in China for testing purposes.
Notably, the prospective customer supplies cathodes to a number of battery manufacturers in China.
Furthermore, the delivery of the lithium carbonate samples followed the company releasing its maiden JORC resource for the Paradox Project.
