New Technology for Extracting Lithium To Be Tested in Nevada
December 2017 by George Corfield
Production of the Lithium will be completed in a 48-hour process with much less waste and a substantial increase of recovery rates from around 40% with conventional evaporation to near 90%.
There is a major change coming in the economy of the world and now is the time for prospectors and miners to grab a ticket and get on board.
Manderfield’s ruling opens the way for Kennecott Eagle to begin blasting. The company has declined to say when it will start. A spokeswoman said drilling would begin “in the coming weeks".
Choosing the right method to move your ore and waste is all about making the right choices. Sometimes more than one method may be used during the life of a mine as an operation expands and grows.
When I read about these new discoveries, I often wonder how the original operators ignored all the additional ore. Yet this has happened again and again in Nevada and many other places.
Gold and jade are actually only minor mineral resources for the Northwestern Alaska region as a whole. Modern prospecting has focused more on base metal than precious metal resources.
In an old mine that does not have stopes, you know the old miners did not take much if any ore out of that excavation. On the other hand, if you see large stopes within the mine you know that it is these places where the miners found profitable ore deposits within the vein.
We import nearly all of our REEs from China, so it’s critical that we find and continue to develop domestic resources of these elements.
