African Lithium Resources Plans To Enhance Operations In Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe Bans Export Of Raw Lithium

African Lithium Resources (Pvt) Ltd has indicated plans to focus on developing its recently acquired Tin Hill lithium resource in Bikita into a small-scale lithium operation beginning this month.

The company is a subsidiary of Alternative Investment Market-listed Red Rock Resources Plc.

The plans were announced by Red Rock Resources CEO and chairperson Mr Andrew Bell in the company’s final audited results for the 2022 fiscal year. The Sunday Mail cites Bell as saying:

A year ago, we would never have supposed that our first new production project of the 2020s might be in Zimbabwe, but we are delighted that it is so and that a country with a long and continuous mining history is coming back into favour, and we are helping that process.

We also expect to bring into test production one or more of the lithium assets held by our Zimbabwe subsidiary.

The mining firm acquired over 51 hectares of lithium claims at Tin Hill, located 29 kilometres north of the Bikita district.

The company has already initiated environmental impact assessment processes for the project.

ALR owns 75 per cent of Tin Hill, with the balance held by a local partner.

Zimbabwe holds some of the world’s largest reserves of hard rock lithium.

Lithium is an important mineral in producing clean energy technologies, which have gained momentum in recent years.
