Project Details

Description

The project aims to expand the Fenix lithium project started in 1997 which contains high uniform lithium concentrations with low levels of contaminants. Brine deposits hold high lithium density ranging from 200ppm to 2,000ppm, which can be concentrated via solar evaporation. The Fenix expansion seeks to at least double the mine's current production.
