Tawana on track for Q1 production
NEAR-TERM lithium producer Tawana Resources is on track to begin production at its Bald Hill project east of Kambalda, WA, in the first quarter of CY18.
At the end of November, design of separation circuit was 88 per cent complete, with contractors mobilising to site.
“Structural steel work is now well advanced and placement of mechanical equipment and electrical cabling has commenced,” Tawana managing director Mark Calderwood said.
“We have selected mining, crushing, power and fuel contractors, and the mining contractor has mobilised to site.”
Tawana joins Altura Mining and Pilbara Minerals in the race to become Australia’s next lithium producer, with all three expected to be in production by the end of March.
