Rhyolite Ridge - Lithium mine project
Operated by Ioneer Ltd, Rhyolite Ridge is a lithium mineral project located in Nevada, US. The project is currently at the definitive feasibility stage as a joint venture between Ioneer and Sibanye Stillwater. The Li-B mineralisation occurs as searlesite. The project will feature an open pit mine and a processing plant with a production rate of 20.6ktpy of technical grade lithium carbonate, later switching to battery-grade lithium hydroxide production at a rate of 22ktpy.
