Name of the Project
Zulu lithium/tantalum project pilot plant.

Location
Fort Rixon, Zimbabwe.

Project Owner/s
Premier African Minerals.

Project Description
The proposed pilot plant at Premier’s Zulu project has a nameplate throughput of up to 190 t/h, however, it is planned to run at a more conservative 140 t/h at inception.

The pilot plant will use state-of-the-art sensor-based ore sorting technologies that will facilitate the separation of run-of-mine material into components and in so doing, likely increase available capacity in the flotation recovery circuits, where lithium minerals are recovered.

Ultimate production and recoveries are a factor of many variables, and the pilot plant is likely to assist in dealing with these variables owing to the inherent flexibility of the use of multiple ore sorters.

Stockpiles of tantalum, petalite and mica/lepidolite rich material will facilitate further test work and flowsheet development to ensure that this material is truly inventory for later profitable recovery.
