The potential for lithium in the UK

2 Lithium is found in economic concentrations in two main types of mineral deposit: minerals and brines. In terms of minerals, lithium is primarily extracted from lithium aluminosilicates, for example spodumene (LiAlSi 2O 6), petalite (LiAlSi 4O 10) and eucryptite (LiAlSiO 4), which are


 · ZJH minerals supply the whole set of equipment for Lithium Mineral Flotation, most notably for spodumene. Spodumene theoretically contains 8.03% Li2O and therefore the production of this mineral is greatly increasing, especially demand for electric vehicle batteries.

What is Lithium Extraction and How Does It Work?

 · The crushed mineral powder is combined with chemical reactants, such as sulfuric acid, then the slurry is heated, filtered, and concentrated through an evaporation process to form saleable lithium carbonate, while the resulting wastewater is treated for reuse or.

Mineral Processing

Mining and mineral-processing industries producing lithium minerals, metals, and salts contribute to the lithium burden in the environment. The processing of lithium-containing minerals such as spodumene, in general, comprises crushing, wet grinding in a ball mill, sizing, gravity concentration, and flotation using a fatty acid (oleic acid) as the collector.
