Managing Director Stephen Biggins is pleased to award this contract.

“We are excited to have Primero on board as an experienced and successful lithium EPC contractor and look forward to working together, delivering the DMS plant and creating an exciting opportunity for the people of the NT,” he said.

“As we have stated to the market, construction of the Finniss Project is on schedule to commence before the end of 2021, with Primero ready to hit the ground running immediately with initial work, in the lead-up to the commencement of process plant building activities in March next year.

“2022 is shaping up to be a defining year for Core Lithium.”
