Lithium Australia (ASX:LIT) will, subject to regulatory requirements, acquire 100% of the Sadisdorf lithium/tin resource from Tin International AG. Consultant CSA Global has estimated that the Sadisdorf Project has an Inferred Mineral Resource of 25 million tonnes grading 0.45% Li2O 1. Significantly the lithium is contained within lithium micas within alteration around tin mineralization, the latter being the subject of historic mining. The lithium micas can be readily concentrated after the removal of tin by conventional gravity separation. Lithium has been very successfully extracted from Sadisdorf mica concentrates using LIT’s SiLeach® process.
