Neometals scores high-grade nickel at Mt Edwards
ASX-listed Neometals has intersected massive nickel sulphides at its Mt Edwards project in the Goldfields region of Western Australia with drilling returning a cracking intersection of 4m @ 6.3% nickel within a broader 11m @ 2.6% nickel from 108m down-hole at the Zabel prospect.
Refinery Wheels In Motion
A hotly anticipated proposal for a lithium refinery in Kalgoorlie-Boulder is quietly moving forward as backers seek out ways to improve the project's viability.
Neometals Eyes Battery Recycling
Perth-based Neometals has been developing a proprietary process to recover 90 per cent of all battery materials from spent and scrap lithium-ion batteries, including cobalt, lithium, nickel, copper, iron and manganese.
India And Australia Strike Their First Lithium Deal To Meet Future Demand For Electric Car Batteries
India and Australia are joining together in a deal which could see Australian lithium used in the first Indian refinery to produce battery grade material for electric cars. Neometals, an Australian company with an interest in the Mt Marion lithium mine near Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, has teamed up with Manikaran Power to jointly fund a study into the refinery.
Neometals Vanadium Revival
Aussie company Neometals is building a battery recycling plant...in Canada
Yesterday, Perth-based battery tech company Neometals fired up its lithium-ion battery recycling pilot plant in Canada. Neometals says it has developed a profitable process that recovers 90 per cent of all raw battery materials, like cobalt, manganese, nickel and lithium from used batteries. These are end-of-life or faulty batteries that would otherwise find their way into landfill or inefficient base metal recovery circuits, Neometals says.
Australia's Neometals Approaching Lithium-Ion Battery Cell Recycling Goal
Australia's Neometals Ltd has announced the successful commissioning of stage 1 of its lithium-ion battery recycling pilot plant. Stage 1 consists of a feed preparation process, which the company says safely and efficiently shreds end-of-life lithium ion batteries at a commercial scale. An interesting aspect is some of these batteries still carry charge. Shredding lithium batteries is accompanied by a risk of combustion occurring, but obviously that threat has been overcome.
Neometals advances integrated lithium plans
Perth-based battery metals developer Neometals is progressing its plans to become a fully integrated supplier of downstream lithium products as well as a recycler of used lithium-ion batteries. It aims to finalise engineering design for its proposed 10,000 t/yr lithium hydroxide plant at Kalgoorlie, as well as advance offtake negotiations and gain necessary development approvals, in 2019.
Neometals agrees the sale of Mt Marion equity for $A104 million and retains offtake rights
Chris Reed's Neometals has offloaded its 13.8 per cent stake in the Mt Marion lithium project near Kalgoorlie, releasing $104 million for the company to pursue its downstream processing ambitions. Neometals' joint venture partners in Mt Marion - Mineral Resources and China's Gangfeng - have agreed to buy out the minority stake, taking their ownership to 50-50.
Neometals' Barrambie titanium-vanadium project back on schedule
Chris Reed's Neometals has dusted off long-stalled plans for its Barrambie titanium-vanadium project 80km north-west of Sandstone on the back of surging prices for the metals. The company announced late last week it would revisit and update a 2009 definitive feasibility study on the project in light of the new market fundamentals.
