Infinity Lithium (ASX:INF) is an Australian listed minerals company who is seeking to develop its 75% owned San Jose Lithium Project (‘San Jose’) and produce battery grade lithium hydroxide in Spain. Supply response is needed to satisfy Europe’s burgeoning electric vehicle and energy storage needs through feeding the large-scale cathode production facilities and lithium-ion battery plants currently under construction.
The San Jose deposit is a highly advanced, previously mined brownfield development opportunity representing EU’s second largest lithium deposit. Infinity Lithium will mine the hard rock Mica resource and develop the vertically integrated project processing facilities to provide a long term, low cost and sustainable European mine-to-end-product battery grade lithium hydroxide operation. The evolving technological developments to provide longer range, nickel rich cathodes that are used in electric vehicles requires battery grade lithium hydroxide.
The project is located approximately 2 and a half hours west of Madrid in the proactive western Spanish region of Extremadura. The industrial lithium chemicals processing facilities benefits from an adjoining resource quarry, readily accessible power and adjacent gas pipeline infrastructure. The logistical “ease of access” and the availability of natural gas provides Infinity Lithium with the opportunity to focus on downstream activities. Infinity completed a battery grade lithium hydroxide scoping study in November 2018 and are progressing towards a Pre-Feasibility Study into the production of lithium hydroxide on site.
