The Greenbushes Lithium Operations are located directly south and immediately adjacent to the town of Greenbushes in Western Australia. It has two processing plants, one producing technical-grade (TG) lithium concentrates and one producing chemical-grade (CG) lithium concentrate. Ore containing Li2O is fed into the processing plants which upgrade the lithium mineral, using gravity, heavy media, flotation and magnetic processes, into a range of lithium concentrates for bulk or bagged shipment.
The Chemical Grade Plant 1 (CGP1) Feed System Project encompasses the engineering design, construction and commissioning of a new CG stockpile reclaim and plant feed system to the existing chemical grade (CG) plant. The works included the procurement, installation and interface of a slewing radial stacker fed from a new contract crushing facility established on-site.
