Sigma Lithium announced yesterday that it has successfully initiated the commissioning of its Phase 1 production plant on schedule and within budget.
“We have been working laser focused towards delivering Battery Grade Sustainable Lithium following the conclusion of the commissioning of our Greentech Plant in April 2023,” said Calvyn Gardner, Co-CEO and Co-Chairperson of Sigma.
Crushing circuit, or dry module, commissioning commenced last week, reported the company. All tests have been successfully completed and the process is expected to be finalized by February 2023.
Once the dry module commissioning is complete, the company can begin dense media separation circuit (wet module) commissioning, which has an expected completion date of April 2023.
“Our technical team, led by Calvyn Gardner and Brian Talbot, has worked tirelessly and relentlessly this quarter to make that happen,” said Sigma’s Co-CEO and Co-Chairperson Ana Cabral-Gardner. “Our stelar team is what makes Sigma so unique.”
Sigma also announced that it has commissioned the system that will pump water from Rio Jequitinhonha six kilometres away to the sewage treatment plant to clean the water, making it suitable for the Greentech Plant.
The company has been conducting continued exploration work with the goal of further increasing the mineral resources to update its resource estimate in 2023.
