Prospect commences petalite and spodumene pilot plant

Prospect Resources has secured long lead equipment items and is commencing the pilot plant project at its Arcadia lithium mine to produce high purity petalite and spodumene samples.

The high purity flotation pilot plant will:

  1. De-risk the flotation process by operating the optimised flow sheet
  2. Supply bulk samples of our high purity products to customers in the technical and chemical markets, to obtain product qualification and maximise market demand for Arcadia’s products
  3. Supplying samples to Uranium One Group for their own product validation purposes and their continuing due diligence on Prospect and the Arcadia lithium mine; and
  4. Enhance all technical elements of the project execution phase

“It is a major milestone that we have secured the long-lead purchases.”

“Prospect has unique geology at Arcadia allowing for production of high purity products that attract premium pricing from both the technical and chemical market.

“The flotation process, together with the Arcadia project, offers an attractive solution for customers seeking long term, high quality and consistent supply.”

“The samples will be used for qualification processes with customers we are dealing with as well as to approach additional customers and grow market demand for Arcadia’s high purity products.”
