Neo Lithium Produces 99.1 Percent Lithium Carbonate in the First Batch from its Pilot Plan
Neo Lithium announced the results of its first batch of lithium carbonate production from its pilot plant in Fiambalá.
Neo Lithium (TSXV:NLC,OTCQX:NTTHF) announced the results of its first batch of lithium carbonate production from its pilot plant in Fiambalá using concentrated brine from its wholly-owned Tres Quebradas lithium project (“3Q project”) in Catamarca province, Argentina.
As quoted in the press release:
“Producing lithium carbonate with this purity level in our first batch is due to the hard work of our technical team and the results of our proven upstream pilot pond system we have implemented,” stated Waldo Perez, president and CEO of Neo Lithium. “This is not a bench scale study; this is real life field conditions for evaporation at the project site and 1:500 scale pilot plant testing in Fiambalá obtaining high purity lithium carbonate in our first attempt. We have now proven our concept, and now we have our focus on the production of battery grade lithium carbonate production during the Q4 2019.”
