As it gears up to transition to the title of lithium producer, Core Lithium has awarded the crushing services agreement for its Finniss lithium project near Darwin in the Northern Territory, Australia, to CSI Mining Services.
The company said its run-of-mine ore will be stockpiled prior to feeding into the CSI crusher circuit, and the crushed ore will then be stockpiled before being processed by the dense media separation plant to make export spodumene concentrate. CSI will design the circuit for that outlined plan.
Mobilisation to the site is expected to begin in June.
Core managing director Stephen Biggins said: “The award of the crushing contract is another significant step in the development of the Finniss lithium project. Core staff have done a great job getting the site ready for CSI to start work next month.”
First ore from Finniss, which Core wholly owns, is on schedule for delivery by the end of this year.
