SALAR DEL RINCÓN, SALTA PROVINCE, ARGENTINA
The Rincon Lithium Project – a large, undeveloped lithium-brine project located in the heart of the ‘lithium triangle’ in Argentina – will be a valuable source of rapidly produced, high-quality lithium for the global energy transition.
A long-life, scalable resource capable of producing battery-grade lithium carbonate from raw brine, the project will help us deliver this vital resource to the global energy industry while meeting our commitment to decarbonise our operations by 2050.
With the Rincon acquisition now complete, we are conducting studies; developing our strategy and timing; securing updates to existing Environmental Impact Assessment Permits. We will be engaging with local communities, The Province of Salta and the Government of Argentina to ensure the project is developed to the highest ESG standards.
A pilot plant is currently operating at the site and further work will focus on continuing to optimise the process and recoveries.
