ioneer is developing its flagship Rhyolite Ridge Lithium-Boron Project in the US state of Nevada, which had a pre-feasibility study (PFS) completed on it in October 2018.
The PFS demonstrated the Rhyolite Ridge project’s scale, long life and potential to become the lowest cost lithium producer in the world.
The study modelled a two-stage mine development – a starter pit covering the first seven years and an expanded pit covering a mine life of over 30 years.
A US$1.82 billion after-tax net present value (NPV) was estimated for the mining operation as part of the PFS.
