Operations in Western Australia

Located in Western Australia’s resource-rich Pilbara region, the Pilgangoora mining operation produces a spodumene and tantalite concentrate. It utilises the Pilgan Plant, which processes the ore into spodumene and tantalite, and in 2021, it acquired the Ngungaju plant, which produces spodumene only. This development allows the company greater agility in supplying the Lithium market. The significant scale and quality of lithium mining at Pilgangoora has attracted a consortium of global partners including Ganfeng Lithium, General Lithium, Great Wall Motor Company, POSCO, CATL and Yibin Tianyi.
