Global Lithium Resources Ltd (ASX:GL1) MD Ron Mitchell tells Proactive the company has progressed work on a definitive feasibility study (DFS) for the Manna Lithium Project in Western Australia, demonstrating strong flotation and lithium recoveries in test-work. GL1 has selected a whole ore flotation circuit for the Manna Project, having completed 31 flotation tests and producing a spodumene concentrate of 5.6% to 6.5% lithium and 0.4% to 0.8% iron. The company achieved spodumene recovery from rougher flotation beneficiation of more than 95% while still maintaining lithium grades of 5.5% or better.

"These results confirm saleable spodumene concentrate can be generated with high lithia recoveries and low impurities," Mitchell said.

The team is now focused on a DFS optimisation test-work program. Introduction of ore sorting into the Manna flowsheet will enhance the project due to the expected uplift in lithium head grade, while significantly reducing the iron content in the mill feed."
