Recoveries in focus for development projects
We had four feasibility studies published in this reporting period, two lithium (Liontown and Sayona), one REE (Pensana) and one graphite (Renascor), and metallurgical test results also from Savannah Resources (lithium). Given that failure to attain targeted recoveries is such an issue in lithium and graphite currently, we decided to focus on these projects. Renascor is targeting a 91% graphite recovery in its Siviour DFS for upgrading material with an in-situ reserve grade of 7.9% TGC to a concentrate grading 94% TGC. 72% of Renascor’s intended concentrate is expected to be the small size (-150 micron), which is not too...
