Lepidico Ltd is an ASX-listed Company focused on exploration, development and production of lithium.
Lepidico owns the technology to a metallurgical process that has successfully produced battery grade lithium carbonate from non-conventional sources, specifically lithium-rich mica minerals including lepidolite and zinnwaldite.
The L-Max® Process has the potential to disrupt the lithium market by providing additional low cost lithium supply from these alternative sources.
A Pre-Feasibility Study (treating ore from Ontario, Portugal and Western Australia) was positive.
The Feasibility Study for a Phase 1 L-Max® plant, to be located in Ontario, Canada, and targeting commercial production for 2019, has recently commenced.
