The Geology, Mineralogy and Geometallurgy of EV Materials Deposits in Western Australia
New technical framework to understand lithium orebodies and optimise development potential
Released today by Minister for Mines and Petroleum, the Hon. Bill Johnston MLA, the M0532 report provides insights on the formation of lithium resources in Western Australia and provides a new geometallurgical framework applicable to mining and processing optimisation.
A higher degree of mineralogical and geochemical variability in lithium deposits exists than previously thought, making the ore body knowledge and geometallurgical data critical factors in optimizing the economics of lithium mining operations in Western Australia.
