Brisbane, Australia, Oct 10, 2019 - (ABN Newswire) - Sayona Mining Ltd's (ASX:SYA.AX - News) (HAM:DML.HM - News) (OTCMKTS:DMNXF - News) Authier Lithium Project (Authier) is a hard rock spodumene lithium deposit scheduled for development as an open cut mine initially producing a 6% Li2O spodumene concentrate, the source of high grade, low contaminant lithium carbonate.
An updated JORC Ore Mineral Resource and Reserve statement, reported in September 2018, has identified a Total Resource of 20.94 million tonnes at 1.01% Li2O, and a Proved Reserve of 12.1 million tonnes at 1.00% Li2O.
The key attraction of the project is its near-term development potential.
The Company has completed a DFS which confirmed the project's potential to become a sustainable and profitable new lithium mine. This was undertaken on the basis of a daily production limit of 2,000 t, as per the previously planned regulatory pathway.
However, the DFS is now being reviewed under a revised regulatory pathway, as announced in March 2019. The new proposed daily production limit of 2,600 t, a 30% increase on the previous limit, will position the project to pursue downstream processing opportunities.
