Millennial is focused on the development of its flagship lithium brine project, Pastos Grandes, situated in the province of Salta in the Lithium Triangle of Argentina. Lithium producers in the Triangle include SQM, Albemarle, Livent Corp. and Orocobre.
Millennial has recently completed a Feasibility Study (FS) on its Pastos Grandes Project which yielded Proven Reserves of 179,000 tonnes of Lithium Carbonate Equivalent (LCE) and Probable Reserves of 764,000 tonnes of LCE. The economic analysis from the FS yielded robust economics for a 24,000 tonne/year battery grade LCE operation with a CAPEX of $442M, OPEX of $3,388/t LCE, NPV(8) of $1,030M and IRR of 24.2%. Pilot plant and pilot pond trials are ongoing at the project.
