All your lithium news, Friday October 21.

 

The Albanese government is trying to further accelerate the growth of Australia’s critical mineral sector after today announcing the development of a new National Critical Minerals Strategy, in-line with other government initiatives such as the National Battery and Electric Vehicle Strategy.

Albanese said next week’s Budget will include $50.5 million over four years to establish the Australian Critical Minerals Research and Development Hub to help unlock our nation’s critical minerals potential.

The government will also allocate $50 million over three years to the Critical Minerals Development Program for competitive grants to support early and mid-stage critical minerals projects, building on the $50 million recently committed to six key projects across Australia.

 

As the world’s largest lithium producer, latest figures estimate Australia’s lithium exports to jump more than 10 fold over two years from $1.1bn in 2022-2023 to almost $14bn in 2022-2023.

The development of a battery industry could contribute $7.4bn annually to our economy and support 34,700 jobs by 2030.

Who’s got news out today?

FORRESTANIA RESOURCES (ASX:FRS)

A drilling contractor has mobilised on site at the Forrestania Project where high-priority lithium targets at Bounty East and Gem Mine will be tested, starting this weekend.

A heritage survey, undertaken by the Ballardong traditional owners, has also wrapped up.

The survey was undertaken at the South Iron Cap East, Bannon, Prince and Lady Lila prospects and no new sites were identified.

 

ALLKEM (ASX:AKE)

AKE’s September quarter has been weaker than expected, with recoveries of just 25% due to the fine grained nature of the ore currently being mined at its Mt Cattlin lithium mine in WA.

Just 17,606dmt of spodumene was produced at a 5.3% Li2O grade, with 21,215t at 5.4% Li2O shipped.

However, AKE managed to pick up an average realised sales price of US$5028/dmt, pulling in US$107m in revenue, with an additional US$35m pulled in from shipments of 59,326dmt of low grade spod, against a cash cost of just US$796/dmt.

Even the low-grade stuff generated a US$25.6m margin, with an 80%, US$85.4m margin for the primary material.
