Leo Lithium (ASX:LLL) has made significant progress in logistics for the Goulamina lithium project in Mali.

A joint venture between Leo Lithium and Ganfeng Lithium Group, the project has confirmed the suitability of San Pedro Port in Cote d'Ivoire to act as a secondary port.

The company says the quality of road access between the site and the port has been deemed suitable for transporting bulk materials.

The first revenue from the Direct Ship Ore (DSO) opportunity is on track for H2 2023, and Leo Lithium says it will use multiple trucking contractors and ports for the DSO shipments before concentrate shipments in 2024.
