StockMarketWire.com - Savannah Resources said an ongoing metallurgical test work programme at its Mina do Barroso lithium project in Portugal had successfully produced saleable co-products.

Mina do Barroso was currently targeting an average annual production rate of 175,000 tonnes of battery-grade spodumene lithium concentrate.

It was also targeting the production of feldspar and quartz co-products for the regional glass and ceramics industries.

Co-product sales would add additional revenues to the project as well as reducing the environmental footprint and costs associated with waste handling and storage, the company said. Story provided by StockMarketWire.com
