Critical Resources reported outcomes from its initial ore sorting test work at the Mavis Lake Lithium Project in Canada.

Collaborating with the Saskatchewan Research Council and STARK Resources, results indicated high amenability of Mavis Lake ore to pre-concentration through ore sorting technology.

The outcomes suggested the potential for reduced processing costs, increased spodumene production, and lower environmental impact.

Initial 150kg sample testing showed a 150% increase in contained lithia, with 98% waste rock rejection and 99% spodumene recovery.
