Cobre Montana’s Adrian Griffin Talks Lithium in the Czech Republic

- March 19th, 2015

Cobre Montana (ASX:CXB) Managing Director Adrian Griffin is anticipating a Scoping Study for the Cinovec project in the Czech Republic, “within the next couple of months.” He also said, “if you go back only 2 months, that project was considered a tin project; by applying the appropriate technology, we found that there is probably twice as much lithium value in that project as there is tin.” Cobre Montana applied their licensed processing technology to extract lithium from the micas and achieved float recoveries of 98% and leach extraction of 99.5% lithium at Cinovec.

Cobre Montana’s flagship project is the Cinovec in the Czech Republic, and a Scoping Study is expected to be released “within the next couple of months,” according to Mr. Griffin. He also says, “if you go back only 2 months, that project was considered a tin project; by applying the appropriate technology, we found that there is probably twice as much lithium value in that project as there is tin.”
