The bench-scale take a look at work utilized lithium concentrates produced by single stage dense media separation (DMS), and flotation from consultant samples sourced from the Firm’s PAK Lithium deposit. Pyrometallurgy and the proprietary hydrometallurgical steps have efficiently resulted within the manufacturing of small portions of high-quality pregnant resolution. The Firm has carried out preliminary crystallization take a look at work that has resulted in 56.5% LiOH values on par with business specs. The Firm is at the moment developing a pilot plant to show steady processing. The pilot testwork will produce bigger portions of PLS appropriate for steady crystallization with the target of manufacturing remaining excessive purity battery grade lithium hydroxide monohydrate from a gradual state course of.
This system outcomes show the flexibility of Frontier to doubtlessly produce lithium hydroxide inside a ‘ore-to-hydroxide’ conversion route. The testwork will help the PEA study at the moment being carried out to entry the viability of a vertically built-in chemical firm by way of operation of a spodumene mine on the PAK Lithium Venture to commercialization of high-purity lithium chemical compounds.
“Current Provincial and Federal bulletins have begun to put the inspiration for a regional, vertically built-in Battery Ecosystem supported by northern pure sources and Ontario’s 96% zero-carbon sources of power,” acknowledged Trevor Walker, President and CEO of Frontier Lithium. “Frontier is nicely positioned within the Nice Lakes area because it develops Ontario’s largest lithium bearing spodumene useful resource with a number of deposits which will probably be required to help North American lithium ion battery manufacturing capability.”

About Frontier Lithium Inc.
Frontier Lithium is a Sudbury primarily based, publicly listed, junior mining firm with the most important land place in an rising premium lithium mineral district situated within the Nice Lakes area of northern Ontario. The corporate maintains 100% curiosity within the PAK Lithium Venture which incorporates certainly one of North America’s highest-grade, massive tonnage hard-rock lithium sources within the type of a uncommon low-iron spodumene. The Venture has vital upside exploration potential. Frontier is a pre-production enterprise that has just lately commenced a Preliminary Financial Evaluation research focusing on the manufacturing of battery high quality lithium hydroxide within the Nice Lakes Area to help electrical automobile and battery provide chains in North America. Frontier maintains a good share construction with administration possession roughly 30% of the Firm.
In regards to the PAK Lithium Venture
The PAK Lithium Venture encompasses 26,774 hectares on the south finish of Ontario’s Electrical Avenue, which is the most important land bundle internet hosting lithium bearing pegmatites in Ontario. The Venture covers 65km of the Avenue size and stays largely unexplored; nevertheless, since 2013 the corporate has delineated two premium spodumene bearing lithium deposits situated 2.3 km from one another on the southwestern finish of the undertaking. Lately, Frontier confirmed the presence of spodumene with the Pennock Lake pegmatite incidence an additional 30km alongside Frontier’s PAK Lithium Venture. Frontier’s premier Nice Lakes location is advantaged by favorable geology, confirmed metallurgy with entry to intermodal hubs, infrastructure, energy, and mining and downstream lithium processing experience.
The PAK deposit has a mineral reserve within the confirmed and possible classes of 5.77 MT averaging 2.06% Li2O. The deposit hosts a uncommon technical/ceramic grade spodumene with low inherent iron (beneath 0.1% Fe2O3). The Spark Deposit, winner of the “2019 Discovery of the yr award” has a mineral useful resource estimate of three.2 MT averaging 1.59% Li2O (indicated) and 12.2 MT averaging 1.36% Li2O (inferred), as per the NI 43-101 Technical Report, “PAK prefeasibility research, Spark useful resource estimation” by WSP Canada Inc. and Nordmin Engineering Ltd., up to date on March 23, 2020. The Firm just lately initiated a Preliminary Financial Evaluation research for a completely built-in undertaking producing lithium hydroxide from the PAK Lithium Venture.
