Argosy Minerals Produces Battery-grade Lithium at Rincon

Argosy Minerals has successfully produced battery-grade lithium carbonate equivalent at its Rincon lithium project in Argentina.

Argosy Minerals (ASX:AGY) has successfully produced battery-grade lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) from the stage one plant at its Argentina-based Rincon lithium project.

According to the company, it has produced 30 kilograms of LCE product with a Li2CO3 content value of 99.6 percent. The material will soon be prepared for customer samples that Argosy will send to international cathode and battery makers for quality confirmation and testing.

Upon customer verification, the product sent off will then form the foundation for preliminary offtake agreements for stage one production from Rincon.

The company’s main goal for stage one is to produce consistent battery-grade LCE product for ongoing operations while also ensuring the chemical process is efficient and cost effective.

“We are delighted at this significant milestone — to achieve such a result from our stage 1 500tpa capacity plant is a remarkable success,” Argosy Managing Director Jerko Zuvela said in a statement.

He added, “[w]e believe our chemical process pathway is efficient and scalable, and the success being announced today bodes well for the continued development of stages 2 and 3 at the Rincon lithium project.” Stage two will see Rincon enter an initial commercial stage, while stage three will bring large-scale commercial production.

Argosy owns a 77.5-percent interest in Rincon, and considers the project its flagship asset, referring to it as a potential “game-changing proposition” due to its location in the renowned lithium triangle.

The area, which overlaps the borders of Bolivia, Chile and Argentina, is considered the world’s dominant source of lithium. Meanwhile, Rincon spans over 2,500 hectares through various mining titles in the area.

The company’s stake in Rincon, which it currently shares with lithium-processing company Pablo Alurralde, will rise to 90 percent upon funding development of stage three.

Argosy’s news, released on Monday (August 6), sent the company’s share price as high as AU$0.34 in Tuesday (August 7) trading. It closed down at AU$0.28 that day.

When Will Australia Legalise Recreational Cannabis?

Recreational cannabis remains illegal in all Australia’s states and territories with the exception of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). But could that change in the future?

So far there are no clear indicators as to when or if Australia could legalise recreational cannabis, but attitudes seem to be changing. Public support is growing, and there’s even some political acceptance.

Read on to learn more about when Australia may legalise recreational cannabis.

Data Review Enhances Prospectivity at Galan’s Greenbushes South Lithium Project

Highlights:

  • CSIRO’s historical datasets show prospectivity for Galan’s Greenbushes South Lithium Project
  • Historical laterite geochemistry data collected prior to mining at Greenbushes
  • Elevated abundances of pathfinder elements display a well-defined anomaly adjacent to Greenbushes South
  • Dispersion of elements into the laterite profiles include arsenic, tantalum, tin and antimony among others
  • Galan to commence sampling and mapping at Greenbushes South next month

Galan Lithium Limited (ASX: GLN) (Galan or the Company) is pleased to announce that it has completed a review of historical CSIRO data which enhances the prospectivity of its Greenbushes South Lithium project.

AIS Resources’ Australian Yalgogrin Gold Project’s first drill hole returns gold intercepts averaging 1.5g/t over 87 meters including 0.9 meters at 9.3 g/t

A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSX: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the “Company” or “AIS) reports that the assay analysis from YDD1 at Neighbour’s Farm historic mine workings, the first diamond drill hole at its Yalgogrin Gold Project, NSW, Australia has been completed by SGS Australia. Extensive gold mineralisation was intersected from 58m through to the end of hole at 162.3m with gold mineralisation remaining open at depth and returning gold Intercepts over 87m averaging 1.5gt. The best individual grades returned up to 9.3 gt Au that are supported by consistent mineralisation hosted within the altered rock mass.

A summary of the intervals and average assays is set out below from the top of the core:

Resolution Minerals Ltd Drilling Program at Sunrise Gold Prospect Completed

Adelaide, Australia (ABN Newswire) – Resolution Minerals Ltd (ASX:RML) (FRA:NC3) is pleased to announce that it has completed the Company’s first drilling program on the Sunrise Gold Prospect at the 64North Project in Alaska. Drilling was conducted along an existing access road, targeting outcropping granite hosted mineralisation, analogous in style to Kinross’s Fort Knox Gold Mine, which is one of Alaska’s most profitable mines. The Sunrise Prospect was identified in 2020 by a RML trenching program and is located less than 5km from Northern Star’s operating Pogo Gold Mine.

Summary

– A 1400m long “fence line” of 27 shallow RAB drill holes designed to test outcropping mineralisation at the Sunrise Prospect has been completed.
