Anson fast-tracks Utah lithium project
Wednesday, November 24th, 2021
The ASX-listed company has appointed contractor Worley to conduct a detailed feasibility study (DFS) on the greenfield lithium project. The outcome of the project will be a final total-installed cost estimate that will allow Anson to move forward into the detailed design and construction phase of a lithium production plant.
The DFS will incorporate results from two production wells and two re-entry exploration wells, scheduled for drilling in the first quarter of next year. The planned work to produce an updated Joint Ore Reserves Committee-compliant resource estimate will be conducted concurrently with the engineering study for the lithium plant.
The engineering study is targeted for completion in the second quarter of 2022.
“This is a very exciting time for Anson, with drilling of two production wells and the re-entry of two existing wells expected to commence in early 2022, and the robust long-term outlook for lithium carbonate based on global acceleration towards decarbonisation, electrification of vehicles and energy storage,” said Anson executive chairperson and CEO Bruce Richardson.https://www.miningweekly.com/article/anson-fast-tracks-utah-lithium-project-2021-11-24
