The successful production of the initial spodumene and tantalum concentrates is a significant commissioning milestone, marking a key step on the path to full production as Pilbara Minerals begins its transformation from developer to become a pre-eminent global lithium and tantalum raw materials producer. Fines Spodumene Concentrate Discharged from the Filter Press at the Pilgangoora Project (Photo 1) The initial concentrate has not been tested for specifications or quality, however early signs indicate that the process plant and equipment is performing as expected. Pilbara Minerals’ Managing Director and CEO, Ken Brinsden, said the production of initial fines concentrates was a significant and exciting milestone, coming just a week after the commissioning process commenced at the Pilgangoora Concentrator. “This is a great result, which marks the culmination of the incredible hard work our entire team has put in to transform the amazing resource at Pilgangoora into a globally significant lithium raw materials production base – with Stage 1 of the project having been delivered in less than four years since the first drill hole,” he said. “Pilbara’s great people and all of our important partners have done an amazing job. The Board is very proud of their achievements – which stand-out for the strong technical work supporting the project, the quality of the build and the speed with which the entire project has been delivered."
