2019/03/08 – Birimian Ltd has received the signed Environmental permit from Mali’s Minister for the Environment for its Goulamina Lithium Project.
The company said it was now looking forward to advancing Goulamina to achieve the milestones required for the next stages of development.Birimian managing director Chris Evans said: “This is a significant milestone for the Goulamina Lithium Project and is the culmination of a great deal of hard work on the part of the project team.
“We are now a large step closer to becoming the first lithium mine in Mali.”
Goulamina project comprises a 295 square kilometre covering highly prospective hard rock lithium pegmatites in the Bougouni region of southern Mali, about 150 kilometres by road from Mali’s capital, Bamako.
The project has an ore reserve of 31.2 million tonnes at 1.56% lithium oxide derived from an indicated mineral resource of 43.7 million tonnes at 1.48% Li2O.
This supports a 16-year operating life at 2 million tonnes per annum.
While its current focus is on advancing the world-class lithium project to production, the company also holds the Massigui Gold Project and the prospective Dankassa Gold Project, all in southern Mali.
