Canada Lithium said it would install an acid cleaning circuit, a bicarbonate recovery circuit and an upgrade to the pumping capacity at the plant in Val-d'Or in northwest Quebec.
The bicarbonate recovery circuit would help enhance the quality of the plant’s lithium carbonate products, the company said.
Canada Lithium expects to begin shipping lithium carbonate products “in due course, following the maintenance/upgrade programme”.
Parallel to the work at the plant, Canada Lithium also suspended its lithium mining operations, it said. Mining operations would be re-started “a few weeks after the plant start-up”, it said.
The plant will be initially fed with 100,000 tonnes of stockpiled lithium raw material, it added.
