Tantalex Lithium Resources (TTX) announced a Maiden Mineral Resource Estimate for the Manono Lithium Tailings project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Key highlights:

  • 5.46 million tonnes at 0.72 per cent Li2O in the Measured and Indicated category;
  • 6.63 million tonnes in total Inferred Mineral Resources at a grade of 0.49 per cent Li2O
  • Lithium contained in spodumene and amenable to the production of 6 per cent Li2O Spodumene Concentrate (SC6)
  • Mineral Resource defined by 11,922 m of drilling in a total of 368 drillholes
  • Quick path to production: material on surface, already crushed; no strip ratio, low mining costs

CEO Eric Allard joined Daniella Atkinson to discuss the news.

“With this Mineral Resource Estimate, Tantalex Lithium now enters a select group of near-term lithium producers. Our relatively easy and low-cost mining process gives us an incredible advantage in our speed to market compared to other lithium peers. With SC6 lithium prices likely set to remain above US$4,000/t for the next 6-8 years, our focus is now to bring an initial production of 100,000 tons per annum of SC6 to market by 2025. With no offtake agreements yet entered into, our project is currently attracting important offtake interest.’’
