Infinity Lithium Company Restricted (‘Infinity’, or ‘the Corporate’) is happy to announce the of entirety of its Locked Cycle Take a look at Program (‘LCT’) carried out at Simulus Staff laboratories. The LCT program showed remarkable lithium recoveries from prior Li-Flow RPKTM procedure check paintings (refer the ASX announcement 7 September 2023) and advanced lithium recoveries from the just lately finalised next lock cycle simulations. All LCT check paintings finished at Simulus Staff Laboratorieswere led and controlled by means of the Infinity GreenTech Technical Advisory Committee.
- Complete Locked Cycle Take a look at Paintings (‘LCT’) program finished at Simulus Staff Laboratories leads to affirmation of remarkable recoveries at San José.
- The LCT showed the a hit utilisation of Li-Flow RPK™ with >
90% recoveries of the lithium from Run of Mine to the overall finish product.
- San José Run-of-Mine ore pattern used to check and optimise Li-Flow
RPKTM in beef up of engineering research.
- LCT showed the constant manufacturing of battery grade lithium hydroxide monohydrate from San José lithium bearing mica.
- LCT confirms and exceeds Up to date Scoping Find out about lithium recoveries assumptions.
- Effects supply knowledge for long term detailed engineering research and optimisations via demonstration plant design.
The finalisation of LCT for Run of Mine (‘ROM’) to finish product during the patent pending Li-Flow RPKTM procedure on the San José Lithium Undertaking (‘San José’, or ‘the Undertaking’) supportsrecently finished engineering research (consult with ASX announcement 9 November 2023 – Up to date Scoping Find out about), and has equipped knowledge for additional procedure optimisation to be integrated within the subsequent phases of Li-Flow RPKTM procedure construction. The Corporate is assessing the following steps for an indication plant for the affirmation of higher scale of manufacturing at San José.
The check paintings carried out simulated the entire procedure and incorporated recycle streams to evaluate steady-state operation of the mass flows. No primary deviations had been discovered from the anticipated regular state prerequisites of this procedure, confirming accuracy of the method fashion and additional de-risking the following phases of up-scaled check paintings.
The consequences showed the suitability of the Li-Flow RPK™ procedure at San Josè and the optimum technical possibility for lithium restoration from ROM to finish product.
The check paintings highlighted the a hit and constant manufacturing of battery grade lithium hydroxide monohydrate utilising Li-Flow RPKTM. The implementation of materially business usual arduous rock backend processing manner (neutralisation, evaporation, crystallisation and ultimate manufacturing of battery grade finish product) and the simplification of unit operations around the entire procedure (together with the removing of conventional arduous rock lithium chemical conversion unit operations such because the beneficiation and calcination phases) during the Li-Flow RPKTM procedure minimising procedure complexity and technical chance.
Infinity’s Leader Technical Officer and Chair of Infinity GreenTech Technical Advisory Committee, Mr Jon Starink mentioned the next referring to the most recent effects and procedure, “This system showed the result of procedure simulations and validated key parameters underpinning the technical and industrial feasibility of extraction of lithium from the San José subject material and gives a cast basis for additional engineering against a DFS and the pilot plant design”.
The LCT equipped battery grade merchandise for all cycles with the next desk appearing the overall impurities (< 0.1%) within the natural lithium hydroxide merchandise:
