Diversified mining and exploration junior, Premier African Minerals is working significantly to ensure that the production of lithium spodumene concentrates at its Zulu lithium and tantalum project in Zimbabwe is fast-tracked after the country recently banned the export of raw lithium.
The Zulu project is a large undeveloped lithium-bearing pegmatite in Zimbabwe, comprising 14 mineral claims covering a surface area of 3.5 km2, which are prospective for lithium and tantalum mineralisation.
Zimbabwe is looking forward to ensuring citizens and the government benefit more from its minerals by limiting the export of employment opportunities by making sure that raw minerals are not exported which will create more jobs for the youth.
Premier is currently undertaking practical application of its technical knowledge to ensure fast-track production of spodumene concentrates at its pilot plant operations at the Zulu lithium project.
“Practical application of our technical knowledge to lead the way in successfully implementing novel processing methods to fast-track production of Spodumene concentrates.
“Processing a pilot plant at Zulu lithium. Supporting the DFS pilot plant operations. Expand board and technical skills,” Premier said in a statement.
The government of Zimbabwe hopes to transition the nation into an upper-middle income economy by 2030 — and the mining industry has been slated by the government as a key component to realizing this vision.
