Neometals proposes to build a lithium hydroxide plant near Kalgoorlie, with an annual processing capacity of 10,000 tonnes. Should the project proceed, it will increase the potential lithium processing capacity in Western Australia to around 200,000 tonnes a year, given that four other plants have either been proposed or are under construction in the state. Neometals plans to source spodumene for the plant from the Mount Marion lithium mine. A final investment decision is expected in mid-2019.
