Zinnwald - Lithium mine project

Report summary

Operated by Deutsche Lithium GmbH, Zinnwald is a lithium mineral project located in Saxony, Germany. As a nod to the history of the area, in 1992 a visitor centre was established at the abandoned underground Zinnwald Mine, where lithium occurs in zinnwaldite within greisens in the Zinnwald Albite Granite. An updated feasibility study in 2020 supported the development of an underground mine and a processing plant to produce 5.1ktpy of battery grade lithium fluoride.
