Alpha Lithium (ALLI) engaged Imec Ingeneria 360° for detailed engineering work on a lithium pilot plant.

The plant is to be located in one of the company’s primary asset locations, the Tolillar Salar in Argentina’s Lithium Triangle.

The company has also begun a bidding process to produce a Preliminary Economic Assessment on a scalable, commercial production facility capable of producing up to 40,000 tonnes per year of high-purity lithium carbonate.

Alpha’s pilot plant will be constructed and tested in Salta’s industrial park, utilizing a skid-mounted, modular, and mobile design.

Once fully calibrated, the equipment, lab facilities and additional offices will be relocated to Tolillar Salar, where the current camp is being upgraded to accommodate a 400-person operation.

Brad Nichol, President and CEO of Alpha Lithium, called the construction of this lithium carbonate pilot plant an important step towards large-scale commercial production. The team has targeted the first module of at least 20,000 tonnes per year to expand beyond that initial phase.

“We are initiating discussions with the world’s most renowned engineering firms, capable of providing the significant engineering services for the design of such a large lithium chemicals production facility. A combination of the right people, processes, technology, and assets have brought Alpha to this important point in its development. With our maiden Resource Estimate expected shortly, Alpha Lithium is ready for the next level of advancement, with the objective of actively providing solutions for the global lithium supply shortage.”

Alpha Lithium (ALLI) is a Canadian exploration company focused on acquiring and developing high-grade lithium brine deposits.

Shares in Alpha Lithium Corp. (ALLI) are down 0.65 per cent, trading at $0.76 per share as of 10:10 am ET.
