Pilbara Minerals Limited and Ganfeng Lithium Group Co have entered into a binding term sheet to conduct a joint feasibility study for a potential downstream conversion facility.

The feasibility study aims to assess the viability of establishing a conversion plant capable of producing approximately 32,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent of lithium chemicals annually.

Key considerations in the feasibility study include the selection of an optimal location, examination of fiscal incentives, development of a flowsheet, evaluation of sustainability aspects, and analysis of economic factors related to the potential lithium chemicals plant. Additionally, the study will include a qualitative assessment of other factors such as Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria, permitting timeline, and supply chain logistics.
