Battery grade lithium produced
The Infinity Lithium share price is taking off on news of positive metallurgical test work.
The products of the company’s 75% owned San José are able to produce battery grade lithium products.
As a result, the company has begun offtake discussions with automakers and lithium-ion battery producers.
According to the company, San José’s location in Spain means it’s ready to supply lithium products to the European battery industry and related Spanish industries.
Additionally, the findings have successfully advanced Infinity Lithium’s alternative processing method for lithium bearing minerals and mineral concentrates. The company’s method is undergoing a feasibility study conducted by Dorfner’s Anzaplan. Patent applications for the process are pending.
The company is also undertaking a review of alternative extractive technologies. The review will find the best process for commercial development.
The review found 2 new and potentially feasible processes that could improve the process’ performance, cost, environmental and social requirements, as well as complexity.
Infinity Lithium has begun a laboratory-scale test work program to test the feasibility of these processes. However, it will make sure the work won’t come at the expense of its feasibility study or the delivery of lithium chemicals requested by offtake parties.
