Agreement with REMSA and adjudication of mining titles.
After years of mining exploration, our teams confirmed the feasibility of the project.
A pilot-scale project started on-site with two aims: optimizing the production of lithium carbonate at a larger scale and training our teams.
In February 2020, the Free, Prior and Informed Consent process was conducted, pursuant to the ILO 169 Convention, in which the community expressed its support for the project.
In April 2020, the Covid-19 global pandemic struck, and the project was halted. Despite this, a strong team of 80 people continues to manage the pilot plant, along with relations with the authorities and communities.
The pilot plant confirmed the quality of the lithium carbonate final product, with a very high level of direct extraction efficiency (90%). It produces lithium carbonate, the perfect final product for the electric vehicles battery industry.
In November, Eramet partnered with the Chinese iron and steel group Tsingshan to build its production plant.
Eramine launched the IRMA (Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance) process. This international standard is designed to certify responsible mining operations.
In the first semester of 2022, the construction of the production plant started with the aim of producing its first lithium carbonate in 2024.
