Lithium Power International: Outstanding Lithium Carbonate Production Result - Maricunga

West Perth, WA / April 4, 2018 / JMN Wire / Lithium Power International Limited (ASX: LPI) (LPI or the Company) is pleased to advise that in addition to the previous announcement of 19 February 2018, where initial lithium carbonate sample with purity of 99.4% had been achieved, the globally recognised chemical company Veolia Water Technologies has produced lithium carbonate samples of 99.9% purity from concentrated brine produced from the Salar de Maricunga.

The optimised evaporation process has been developed by Peter Ehren; Principal Process Consultant to the Maricunga Project (MSc. Raw Materials Technology, MAusIMM CP under JORC and QP under NI43-101) and executed by Veolia. This work has been achieved by using several crystallization techniques to remove primary contaminates such as tachyhydrite and calcium chloride from the concentrated Maricunga lithium bearing brine (Brine).


  • Globally regarded processing group Veolia Water Technologies produced lithium carbonate samples with 99.9% purity, from the Salar de Maricunga brine
  • Optimised evaporation process developed by the Minera Salar Blanco (MSB) Maricunga project team has resulted in impurity removal
  • Pilot plant testing to continue to further quantify the process for commercial application.
