Australia-based PepinNini Minerals has secured the Tabapocitos 01 licence that expands its Salta lithium brine project in Argentina.

Located in the Pocitos area in the southern part of the Salta project, Tabapocitos 01 is situated immediately near PepinNini Minerals’ Pocitos 11 licence, as well as the site of an industrial park planned to be developed by the Salta provincial government.

PepinNini is assessing options to build a plant at the industrial park. The plant is intended for production of lithium carbonate (LIC) at a commercial-scale from the brines extracted from the wider Salta lithium project.

In a press statement, PepinNini Minerals said: “In addition to the site of the proposed industrial park, PepinNini’s Pocitos licences are well located relevant to critical road, rail and water infrastructure. This represents a significant benefit for any future project development.”

The company now holds three licences in the Pocitos area. The other two are Pocitos 11 and Tabapocitos 02.

PepinNini Minerals is planning to include brine samples from the Pocitos licences, the Incahuasi salares and Rincon, as well as other licences within the Salta Project area, in planned assessment studies for direct lithium extraction (DLE).

This would help in significant expansion of brine sources from the project for potential commercial evaluation, the company noted.

PepinNini plans to develop lithium brines resources of adequate scale from the Salta project to support the development of LIC production to cater to lithium battery markets.

Covering 147.07km², the Salta lithium brine project features five salt lakes that are situated within seven mining leases. It is located in the lithium triangle of north-west Argentina.
