Lithium Power International (ASX:LPI) is developing high-grade lithium mines in Chile and Australia. LPIs flagship project, The Blanco project, is located in Maricunga, Chile, and is the highest quality pre-production lithium brine project in South America. Combined with two lithium projects in Western Australia, LPI is set to produce high-quality lithium throughout three projects. Since Chile and Australia are the top two producers of lithium, LPI is poised for success.


The Maricunga project, also known as the Blanco project, was fully permitted by the Chilean authorities in 2020 after undergoing an environmental study. The project has been previously developed by Tier-1 companies, such as GEO, Stantec and Worley. Furthermore, a strategic alliance with Mitsui allows for increased funding options and offloads some of the responsibility for process engineering to Mitsui. An in-depth feasibility study shows that the facilities have been designed to mine lithium at a rate of 20,000 TPY by processing concentrated lithium brine.
