Feedback has now been received confirming the high-purity of the lithium sample, which importantly exceed customer specifications.
Test work from the customers confirmed low impurities, tight particle size distribution and low water content.
This testing completes the first stage of a testing program, with further testing to be performed on samples produced from Anson’s planned on-site pilot plant.
Anson producing another 20 kilograms of sample
Anson is progressing with the production of a further sample of 20kg of lithium carbonate using ion exchange equipment planned to be used in Anson’s planned on-site pilot plant.
This will not only provide the opportunity for additional prospective customers to perform initial testing, but also provide further feedback on the expected performance of ion exchange equipment planned to be used in the on-site pilot plant.
It is expected that the 20kg sample will be completed in October 2019 following which it will be sent to prospective customers for further test work.
Anson continues to stay busy progressing its flagship Paradox Lithium Project in Utah, US.
