Our 800 acre site sits on one of the richest spodumene ore deposits in the world. In addition, this site produces battery-grade lithium hydroxide, lithium bromide, lithium chloride, USP-grade lithium carbonate, high purity lithium carbonate, batterygrade lithium metal products and lithium alloy powders. Our Global Technical Center and Piloting Operation has the capability to produce a wide range of new lithiumbased materials for battery applications.
In addition, lithium-based chemicals including amides, hydrides, and alkoxides can also be made by our Pilot Plant.
In 2012, we completed the design and construction of a new world-class 5,000 metric ton battery-grade lithium hydroxide plant and a new state-of-the-art 57,000 square feet Global Technical Center making Kings Mountain one of the
most sophisticated advanced lithium material sites in the world.
In the 1960s, the Company was the first to produce lithium carbonate from brine with the opening of the Silver Peak, Nevada site. Today, this site is supported by the most productive lithium brine well field in the United States and is used to produce lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide.
