Calcination, Acid Roasting and Water Leaching of spodumene concentrate (reported October 12, 2021) to produce lithium carbonate
Higher than 99% pure lithium carbonate achieved
Approximately 99% Li2O recovered from impurity removal stages
Test work to commence shortly on a direct lithium hydroxide from spodumene concentrate process
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ULTH; OTC: ULTHF; FWB: 0ULA) (“ULTH” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce results from proprietary lithium purification testwork to produce lithium carbonate (Li2CO3) from spodumene concentrate. Testing produced lithium carbonate with a purity of approximately 99.1% from the initial bench tests. This test program was conducted under the supervision of Dr. Abdul Halim at Process Research Ortech Inc. in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.(CSE:
The technical grade of Li2CO3 product and recovery of Li2O from flotation concentrates are considered excellent.

Process Research Ortech Inc. (PRO) was contracted byto develop a sustainable process flow-sheet for the recovery of lithium from a hard rock deposits. The primary lithium mineral to be concentrated is the alumina-silicate spodumene. Spodumene is considered the most important commercial lithium mineral due to its high Li content and favorable processing characteristics. For phase one of the program a lithium rich pegmatite was sourced from Canada for testing.
The success of this program has encouraged United Lithium to continue forward with expanded test work for direct lithium hydroxide production from spodumene concentrate. Test work to date will allow optimization of pilot plant testing, expected to commence early in 2022. The proposed pilot plant will test lithium rich feed materials from a variety of projects, with results expected to be suitable for an economic assessment of a flowsheet to recover Li2CO3 and LiOH from spodumene and petalite feed.

Table 2 Analysis of the process solutions related with Li2CO3 precipitation tests
Work to date continues to demonstrate a “greener” process: lower temperatures, lower chemical needs, shorter processing times versus incumbent technologies point toward the environmental and CO2 impacts of high grade lithium salts production to be substantially reduced. Reagents and water consumption can be minimized by recycling the process streams such as filtrates, washes, evaporated water and crude products to the Li2CO3 precipitation, impurity removal, and water leaching stages.
When additional test work to convert spodumene concentrate into lithium carbonate is completed, a life cycle assessment for this innovative process is planned, and engineering data will be available to support decision making. A test program to optimize the calcination and roasting portions of the flowsheet to make them even more environmentally friendly is being designed by the company’s President and CEO Michael Dehn and Dr. Abdul Halim, VP Technology of Process Research Ortech Inc.
”Test work to date has demonstrated that it is possible to modify traditional processes and shortcut lithium carbonate production using innovative out of the box thinking. United Lithium aims to commercialize a sustainable and robust process flow sheet for lithium concentrate production, high grade lithium carbonate and potentially high purity battery grade lithium hydroxide, with the ability to accommodate multiple feed materials with minimal modifications.”, states Michael Dehn, President and CEO of United Lithium. “By making minor improvements in each step of the traditional flowsheet, we believe we can deliver a new lithium flowsheet with distinct economic and environmental benefits”.
The detailed bench test work to develop a flowsheet was conceived and supervised by Dr. Abdul Halim, VP Technology of Process Research Ortech Inc. He has over 15 years of experience in developing and optimizing innovative and sustainable technologies for critical metals including lithium, cobalt, nickel and other base metals, PGMs, gold, germanium and rare earths (REEs) from mined natural resources and recycle materials through bench, pilot, and demonstration plant operations. He has authored more than 50 scientific and technical papers, holds 5 US patents, and has authored a number of book chapters in these areas. He worked at FLSmidth, Salt Lake City, USA, and SGS Lakefield, Canada prior to joining Process Research Ortech Inc. as a VP Technology.

Monarch Mining Prepares Beaufor Mine and Beacon Mill for the Restart of Operations
MONTREAL, Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MONARCH MINING CORPORATION (“Monarch” or the “Corporation”) (TSX: GBAR) (OTCQX: GBARF) is pleased…
MONTREAL, Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —(“Monarch” or the “Corporation”) ( ) (OTCQX: GBARF) is pleased to provide an update on the restart of operations at the Beaufor Mine and Beacon Mill, scheduled to begin in the coming weeks in preparation for the start of mining in 2022. Rehabilitation work at the two sites is being carried out by some 30 employees and more than 120 regular and part-time contractor personnel.
The following is a summary of the work done to date at the Beaufor Mine:
- Rehabilitation of 900 metres of rail track including four new switches on level 20 to allow for a sustained maximum haulage rate between the Q zone and the shaft.
- Rehabilitation of the main ramp from level 20 to the Q zone on level 132, which is needed for development and production to resume.
- Recommissioning of four R1300 LHD loaders, three 30-tonne trucks, including the AD30, and two 15-tonne trucks.
- Dismantling of the surface ventilation system at the Pascalis shaft and reassembly near the old Beaufor #4 shaft to improve the ventilation system in the Q, W and 350 zones.
- Installation of a 25-kV electrical system to power the future development of the W zone and the new ventilation system.
- Rehabilitation of the surface ore bins to make them safer.
At the Beacon mill, major work has been undertaken since the mill was last commissioned in 2014:
- The administrative offices, drying rooms, warehouses and electrical room have been renovated.
- The electrical distribution system and mill’s internal piping have been replaced.
- The main crusher has been dismantled to allow for a complete overhaul.
- The pumping system has been improved.
- The mill’s internal conveyor system has been inspected, with major repairs made to the main conveyor under the grizzly and the outside rock breaker.
“This work is part of our estimated budget of approximately $12.5 million to bring the Beaufor Mine and Beacon Mill back into operation and will allow our employees to work more efficiently and safely,” said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and CEO of Monarch. “In addition, as we have said before, we will now be able to extract gold from two sources, the shaft and the ramp, instead of just one, which should increase the mine’s capacity. In terms of our production schedule, we expect to complete the mine and mill preparation work at the end of the fourth quarter.”
“In terms of exploration at the Beaufor Mine, we have four underground drills currently operating on site and the 42,500-metre drilling program is approximately 85% complete. We are extremely pleased with the results obtained to date and are looking forward to seeing what the next drill results will show,” added Mr. Lacoste.

( ) (OTCQX: GBARF) is a fully integrated mining company that owns four projects, including the past-producing Beaufor Mine, which has produced more than 1 million ounces of gold over the last 30 years. Other assets include the Croinor Gold, McKenzie Break and Swanson properties, all located near Monarch’s wholly owned Beacon 750 tpd mill. Monarch owns 28,702 hectares (287 km2) of mining assets in the prolific Abitibi mining camp that host 478,982 ounces of combined measured and indicated gold resources and 383,393 ounces of combined inferred resources.
