As quoted in the press release:

Operating improvements and upgrades to the kiln continue during commissioning and include changes to the kiln product handling system and the automation of its control system. At the same time, minor modifications are being made to the final stage of the battery grade circuit to enable volume production of this high end product. Currently the plant is focused on building to commercial production volumes of technical grade material and achieving regular delivery of product to our off-take partners. The price differential between technical and battery grade lithium carbonate is approximately 15%.

RB Energy President and CEO, Rick Clark, said:

We are at a critical time in our commissioning efforts at the Quebec Lithium operation. The important step of maintaining continuous production will be achieved after overcoming our unexpected operational challenges. Our toes are on the finish line and we are committed to completing the commissioning process as quickly and efficiently as possible. To achieve this, we are engaged in financing discussions with various parties to secure our short term cash flow requirements. We are in a unique position in this very exciting and growing power storage market. Lithium is the cornerstone of this market and Quebec Lithium is the only hard rock lithium operation in North America and at full production will be one of the largest producers in the world.
