Canada Lithium Corp. (TSX:CLQ) announced that its Quebec lithium project is still on track to begin shipping lithium carbonate in March 2013 and commented that growth in demand is keeping the lithium market strong.
As quoted in the press release:
All major process equipment, such as secondary crusher, fine ore bin, grinding circuit, flotation cells and electrical sub-station, have now been installed. The hydrometallurgical kiln, a key process component that initiates conversion of low-value spodumene to higher-value lithium carbonate, is being assembled and should be secured on its concrete foundation in the coming weeks.
High voltage transformers and switchgear have been installed and are expected to be operational by late September when Hydro Québec is scheduled to complete a high-voltage line on-site. Pre-stripping of the deposit is scheduled to commence following receipt of final provincial environmental approvals.
