In a news release on February 4, 2020, Plateau Energy Metals Inc. announced the results from an independent Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA), prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101, for the Falchani Lithium Project in Peru. The PEA demonstrates the Project’s ability to become a large, long life producer of low cost, high quality-low impurity battery grade lithium carbonate.
M.Plan International, as owner’s representative to Plateau, provided input and advice relating to the process flow sheet development, including plant, equipment and up-front leaching and downstream precipitation during the completion of the PEA.
“The battery supply chain is evolving and growing rapidly and as a result, significant amounts of lithium chemical supplies for batteries are required to meet the over $450 billion of capital committed by vehicle manufacturers and battery plants,” stated Alex Holmes, CEO of Plateau. “What we have at Falchani is a project that has the potential to respond as the market grows, with a low impurity battery grade lithium chemical product, a long mine life set to last through cyclical price environments, and importantly, the potential to be one of the greener lithium projects in the future.”
