Anson Resources Limited has announced it has commenced construction of its demonstration plant at the Green River Lithium Project, in the Paradox Basin in south-eastern Utah, US.
The commencement of construction of the demonstration plant is another major step in Anson's planned accelerated development of the Green River Project, and comes after it completed a detailed geotechnical engineering study over the project area and confirmed the site of the proposed processing plant at the Project.
The demonstration plant is located at Anson’s previously purchased industrial-use land holding at Green River, and when complete will continuously produce lithium carbonate for use by OEMs and other potential offtake partners in their qualification process.
Lithium carbonate will be produced using direct lithium extraction technology and will replicate equipment and process used in Anson’s Lithium Innovation Centre, Florida, which is producing samples for OEM qualification test work.
The demonstration plant will showcase all the processing steps required to produce battery grade lithium carbonate at an initial production capacity of 500 kg pa.
Anson advises that it has received the necessary approvals for the demonstration plant site and ground work has already commenced.
The company has also been successful in applying for a mains power connection to the site and has reached agreement for the supply of water.
It is anticipated that the Green River demonstration plant will commence production in January 2024.
