Snow Lake has entered into a contractual agreement with SGS Natural Resources in Lakefield, ON to perform the necessary metallurgical testing required for the preliminary economic assessment, or PEA, and for the subsequent pre-feasibility study, or PFS.
SGS is a recognized world leader in lithium analysis and a global expert in this field. SGS will determine the best processing profile for the beneficiation of the Snow Lake lithium ore to produce a spodumene concentrate at 6% Li2O. In addition, SGS will lead the program for the development and optimization of the process to produce a lithium hydroxide monohydrate product from the Snow Lake lithium ore. Snow Lake is committed to launching a fully integrated operation from ore mining to hydroxide processing in order to supply the North American EV market.
Stephen Mackie, North America Director of Metallurgy and Mineralogy for SGS Natural Resources, commented, "We are looking forward to collaborating with Snow Lake Lithium as we develop their project from ore processing through to the production of a high purity hydroxide product. It is a very exciting time in the lithium space and we are very proud to be a part of this Canadian project"
CEO of Snow Lake Lithium, Philip Gross, commented "We are currently running to achieve full scale production and seeking to quantify all unknown variables. The SGS metallurgical studies will provide the critical data needed to complete our PEA, initiate a PFS and confirm our trajectory to becoming the first B Corp fully renewable, carbon neutral North American hydroxide producer to the EV industry."
