At the Fastmarkets Lithium Supply and Battery Raw Materials Conference in the US, Northern Lithium and Evove announced the signing of a contract to install and trial a Lithium Extraction plant at Northern Lithium’s first production site in County Durham during the autumn of 2024.

The commercial agreement follows Evove’s extensive Direct Lithium Extraction processing at industrial-scale of saline brines extracted from Northern Lithium’s Northern Pennine Orefield last year  and the announcement of a partnership between Evove, Northern Lithium and engineering firm RSE in December 2023.

The initial module of a DLE demonstration plant is due to be commissioned during the autumn of 2024, with successive modular expansion of the plant thereafter to reach first full-scale commercial production of battery grade lithium from 2027.
