  • (1888PressRelease) June 28, 2018 - AMX Mining (ISIN: CN9738820018), a Chinese company focusing on mineral exploration for lithium deposits with the mission to be a sustainable minerals exploration company providing shareholders with risk managed discovery, development and mining opportunities, today announced that it is rapidly advancing its Beihuo Salt Lake lithium project by beginning the next phase of process test work. As part of its ongoing work towards a Preliminary Economic Assessment, the Company has secured access to state-of-the-art Research and Development.

    The proposed lithium recovery process that will be tested in the Try-out Pilot Plant consists of three distinct phases:
    1. Removal of alkali earth elements using membranes
    2. Recovery of lithium into concentrated high-purity lithium sulfate solution utilizing proven solvent extraction process
    3. conversion of the lithium sulfate solution into a concentrated high-purity lithium hydroxide solution, using electrolysis, and subsequent crystallization into high-purity battery grade lithium hydroxide

    At the end of the Try-out Pilot Test work, TPT will complete a report including:
    • Description of analytical methods and laboratory procedures
    • Description of the mini-pilot tests and operating conditions
    • Results of the mini-pilot tests with analytical data on efficacy and efficiency of lithium recovery
    • Recommendations for the continuous pilot stage and additional engineering studies
    • Initial recommendations for industrial scale, including preliminary flowsheets
    • Scale-up data, including preliminary estimates of capital and operating costs at industrial scale

    AMX Mining CEO Mou Yang Guoqiang commented, “The current producers of lithium materials for the green economy still rely on inefficient, environmentally challenging, capital intensive 20th century processes. Significant advancements have taken place in mineral processing and battery material production technologies, and the suite of processes is designed for high rates of lithium recovery, a smaller environmental footprint and lower investment cost. AMX Mining is focused on developing the most efficient lithium recovery technologies and is engaged in ongoing work with other world-class technology leaders in the sector as a precursor of its company listing project.”
