Wood has been selected by Australian-based lithium-boron mine developer Global Geoscience Ltd to complete the pre-feasibility study (PFS) for the Rhyolite Ridge Lithium-Boron project in Nevada, US.
Global Geoscience’s 100%-owned Rhyolite Ridge project is a large, shallow lithium-boron deposit located close to existing infrastructure in southern Nevada.
Wood’s scope of work on the project includes the preparation of a PFS. The first phase will involve a series of value engineering trade-off studies of different options and establish the economics of the project. The second phase comprises the completion of a JORC Code-compliant PFS.
Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood’s Specialist Technical Solutions, said: “Rhyolite Ridge is one of the largest lithium and boron deposits in North America. We look forward to applying our strong technical capability and experience in lithium processing on this project to support Global Geoscience in realising this exciting lithium-boron growth opportunity.”
Global Geoscience’s Managing Director, Bernard Rowe, said: “Wood’s capabilities and strong technical team are an exceptionally good fit for the Rhyolite Ridge PFS. Wood has completed numerous studies for mining projects in Nevada as well as relevant studies for various lithium and boron projects globally.”
