Galaxy Resources Limited (ASX:GXY) reported its production of lithium carbonate at the Jiangsu Lithium Carbonate Plant in China.
As quoted in the press release:
Galaxy said the calcination kiln was fired to operating temperature (1,080 degrees Celsius), and has been successfully producing beta spodumene since mid March. The remainder of the Plant – including the sodium sulphate plant, utilities, and leach area – was brought online without incident. The sulphuric acid addition was established at the end of March, with the sulphation kiln producing sulphated beta spodumene which, in turn, was fed through the Plant. All process flows were then brought on line across the entire Plant, culminating in successful production of lithium carbonate.
