This bulk sample will be milled to obtain a 6% Li2O concentrate that will be further processed into lithium hydroxide at Nemaska Lithium's Phase 1 Plant which is under construction in Shawinigan, Quebec. With the General Certificate of Authorization for the Whabouchi Mine site already in hand, Nemaska Lithium is not anticipating any issues with the ongoing further permitting and has given a mandate for site preparation and installation of the modular mill to Met-Chem Canada, member of the DRA Group. The Corporation is anticipating installation and commissioning of the DMS modular mill to be completed by the end of October 2016 with the mill producing a DMS concentrate over the next 12 to 18 months following the commissioning phase. Part of the DMS material will be further processed through flotation before being shipped to the Phase 1 plant in Shawinigan, Quebec.
