Galan Lithium (GLN) has achieved a high battery grade of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) from its HMW Project.

The company has completed a concept laboratory test which showed its LCE hit a purity of 99.88 per cent, the minimum requirement of battery-grade quality is 99.5 per cent LCE.

The test feedstock was the high-quality brine concentrate, with lithium contents greater than 6 per cent.

According to the company, the high-grade and low-impurity brine has demonstrated that Galan can produce high-purity lithium carbonate at a low cost.

Notably, the test also delivered great results in the removal of sulfate, boron, calcium and magnesium, which can be difficult contaminants to remove.

The HMW Project is located in the South American Lithium Triangle in Catamarca, Argentina.

Managing Director Juan Pablo Vargas de la Vega is pleased with these “fantastic results”.

“While this is early days, we are excited to demonstrate this first step as a proof of
concept of high purity lithium carbonate while we still have room for improvement,” he said.

“The company continues to add flexibility on the road to production with different added value routes as lithium concentrate and now battery grade lithium carbonate. We keep learning with every test we do and will continue to do so in the future.”

On the market this morning, Galan is up 4.64 per cent and is trading at $1.02 per share at 10:46 am AEST.
