Funds to advance brine project
The funds are likely to be used to continue advancing the development of Anson’s flagship Paradox Brine Project in Utah, US.
Anson last month produced its first lithium chloride from test work.
This sample will be further processed into lithium carbonate and sent to potential customers to test its suitability for use in their lithium battery cathodes.
The test work aims to produce a 20-kilogram sample of lithium carbonate.
An exploration program is also set to begin alongside the test work programs.
Anson most recently revealed that it plans to re-enter the Skyline Unit 1 and Long Canyon Unit 2 wells to sample brine at Paradox.
Anson established its maiden JORC resource by re-entering old oil wells and this program plans to build upon that resource.
