Galaxy Resources Ltd

ASX Code: GXY
http://www.galaxyresources.com.au/

Has three Lithium JORC Resource

Mount Caitilin, Ravensthorpe - Western Australia ~Contained Li2CO3 171,500t, Tantalite 2,555.875 t (Jan 2010)
15MT ore at 1.08% Lithium Oxide, Tantalite 161ppm -

Sal De Vida - Argentina ~ A maiden JORC-compliant Reserve estimate of 1.1 million tonnes of retrievable lithium carbonate equivalent and 4.2 million tonnes of potassium chloride (potash or KCI) equivalent.... Galaxy controls 100% of the brine mineral rights over more than 385 square kilometres on the eastern half of the Salar del Hombre Muerto. The western half of the Salar is the site of Argentina’s only commercial scale lithium mining operation owned by Minera del Altiplano, a subsidiary of FMC Corporation. The Fenix operation has been producinglithium since 1997 and according to FMC’s website has a mine life of over 75 years.

James Bay, Canada ~ Contains indicated resources of 11.75 million tonnes grading at 1.30% Li2O and inferred resources of 10.47mt grading at 1.20% Li2O.


Orocobre Ltd

ASX Code: ORE
http://www.orocobre.com.au/

Argentina, South America.
In late April, Orocobre reported a maiden resource at Olaroz of 350 million kilolitres of brine at 800 g/kL Li and 6,600 g/kL K, equivalent to 1.5 Mt of lithium carbonate and 4.4 Mt of potassium chloride. Then in early May, the company advised that it had completed a scoping study over the project. The study revealed potential to develop a long life operation with production of 15,000 tpa lithium carbonate and 36,000 tpa potash. The resource base had potential to support future expansions and there was further exploration potential beneath the current resource. Testing resulted in attractive lithium and potassium grades and low magnesium. Capital costs were in the range of US$80 - 100 million with low cash operating costs. The completion of a BFS had also been factored in and was estimated to costs US$2 million and be completed by mid-2010. The company had committed to completion of the BFS. Lithium brine Mg:Li ratio of 2:1


Neometals Ltd

ASX Code : NMT
http://www.neometals.com.au/lithium.php

Mt Marion, Western Australia ~ Current JORC-compliant resource of 14.8Mt @ 1.3% Li2O.
(Neometals 70% and Mineral Resources 30%)

 

Pilbara Minerals Ltd

ASX Code: PLS
http://www.pilbaraminerals.com.au/

PLS’s flagship asset is its Pilgangoora Lithium Project in WA.  The company to date has determined a JORC Resource of 80.2Mt at 1.26% Li2O, equivalent to 1.7Mt of contained LCE.  Pilgangoora is the world’s 2nd largest hard rock lithium deposit, ranking only behind the world class Greenbushes mine.  Compared to other emerging hard rock lithium producers, Pilgangoora ranks above average in terms of size, grade, and costs, as well as demonstrating favourable metallurgy to date.

 

Lithium Australia NL

ASX Code: LIT
http://lithium-au.com/


Please note that we have been unable to find a JORC resource for Lithium Australia NL

However we have included them on this page as they have developed an extraction method (Sileach) from Lithium Mica which gives them cost effective lithium production from the world's largest lithium resource -Li mica rocks, found in many parts of the world in large amounts which hitherto has been too expensive to process. (The biggest cost of recovering lithium chemicals from spodumene, by conventional means, is the energy required for roasting. This requires very high temperatures, that need to be maintained for long periods of time to make the spodumene reactive. We have removed all of the energy requirements from the process, which is done in aqueous solution, at low temperature, and atmospheric pressure. We can also recover some of the other chemical components of the spodumene as by-products creating addition operating cost credits. Our aim is to halve the operating cost of producing lithium carbonate from spodumene.) Read more pdf download
