United Lithium (ULTH) has achieved 99.1-per-cent pure lithium carbonate from spodumene concentrate.

Spodumene is considered the most important commercial lithium mineral due to its high Li content and favourable processing characteristics.

The test program was conducted under the supervision of Dr. Abdul Halim at Process Research Ortech in Mississauga, Ontario.

The program’s success has prompted United Lithium to pursue expanded test work for lithium hydroxide production from spodumene concentrate.

The company’s pilot plant is expected to begin testing in early 2022 with a focus on lithium-rich feed materials. Results will then be subject to an economic assessment to recover Li2CO3 and LiOH from spodumene and petalite feed.

United’s proprietary methodologies exhibit lower temperatures, lower chemical needs and shorter processing times versus incumbent technologies.

Michael Dehn, President and CEO of United Lithium, stated,

“Test work to date has demonstrated that it is possible to modify traditional processes and shortcut lithium carbonate production using innovative out-of-the-box thinking.

United Lithium aims to commercialize a sustainable and robust process flowsheet for lithium concentrate production, high-grade lithium carbonate and potentially high-purity battery-grade lithium hydroxide, with the ability to accommodate multiple feed materials with minimal modifications.

By making minor improvements in each step of the traditional flowsheet, we believe we can deliver a new lithium flowsheet with distinct economic and environmental benefits.”

United Lithium is an exploration and development company targeting lithium projects in politically safe jurisdictions with advanced infrastructure.

United Lithium (ULTH) closed down by 1.43 per cent trading at $0.69 per share.
