The Vulcan Energy Resources Ltd (ASX: VUL) share price rocketed up to a record high earlier today based on an update on its Taro lithium asset. After jumping 19.28% to its peak of $1.98 this morning, the Vulcan share price has since retreated significantly. It’s now trading up 2.11% at $1.69 at the time of writing.

What did Vulcan announce?

Vulcan released an updated and reclassified resource estimate for its Taro asset. The new estimate indicated that the Taro asset includes .83 million tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) at a grade of 181 milligrams per litre of lithium. This was based on the acquisition and interpretation of seismic and well data. 

The company also announced:

  • Taro inferred resource estimate revised upward to 1.44 million tonnes of contained LCE at a grade of 181 milligrams per litre of lithium
  • Upper Rhine Valley project now estimated to contain 16.19 million tonnes LCE indicated and inferred with a grade of 181 milligrams per litre of lithium

The company will also include the higher resource estimates into its pre-feasibility study for the Upper Rhine Valley project. Vulcan aims to produce lithium hydroxide for electric cars with the lowest carbon dioxide equivalent footprint in the world from this “zero carbon lithium” project.
