Australian minerals shipped to South Korea

The company will send 40 kg of nickel sulfate and 4 kg of cobalt sulfate samples from its Sconi cobalt-nickel-scandium project in northern Queensland to SK Innovation (Seoul, South Korea; www.skinnovation.com). SK Innovation will use the samples in its electric-vehicle manufacturing plants. SK Innovation will assist Australian Mines in optimizing the Sconi bankable feasibility study and help with enhancing the proposed processing plant and mining operation through sample validation. The shipment ore was transported from Queensland to Australian Mines’ demonstration plant in Western Australia for trial processing via high-pressure acid leach and solvent extraction. The plant produces samples containing more than 98%-purity cobalt sulfate and 99%-purity nickel sulfate, without using a third-party commercial laboratory and exceeding SK Innovation’s specifications for electric vehicle feed materials. Under the terms of an agreement with SK Innovation, Australian Mines will supply up to 12,000 metric…
