The open-pit mine and concentrator is located approximately two kilometres north of Ravensthorpe in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. Operations recommenced at Mt Cattlin in late 2016, producing high-quality spodumene concentrate that is qualified in the lithium supply chain globally.

Overview

Mt Cattlin is a low-cost spodumene producer utilising conventional techniques to extract and process the resource.

Mining of the relatively flat-lying pegmatite ore body at Mt Cattlin is carried out using excavator and truck operations, delivering ore to a crushing and dense medium separation gravity recovery circuit.

Contractors are used for grade control drilling and earthmoving operations including drilling, blasting, and load and haul. The product is then trucked to the Esperance Port for export to an Asian customer base.

Sustainability initiatives include but are not limited to the installation of a solar farm in 2010, water recycling on site, a “hire local philosophy” and the establishment of a Community Consultation Group that meets frequently.

Long term contracts are in place with major customers and operationscan produce up to 6% Li2O grade depending on customer requirements.
