Pilbara Minerals is an Australian lithium-tantalum producer listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX: PLS) and considered within the top 300 companies in Australia (ASX300 index).
Through the development of its 100%-owned Pilgangoora Lithium-Tantalum Project (Pilgangoora Project), Pilbara Minerals is set to become one of the biggest lithium raw materials producers in the world.
The Pilgangoora project is located in Western Australia’s Pilbara region and is considered one of the largest hard-rock lithium-tantalum deposits globally. The significant scale and outstanding quality of the Pilgangoora project has seen Pilbara Minerals progress it from first drill hole to production in under four years.
Currently in production and with product shipments underway, Pilbara Minerals is embarking on an expansion of the Pilgangoora Project. This Stage 2 expansion will see the processing capacity increase from the current 2Mtpa to 5Mtpa, subsequently increasing production from 330,000tpa to 800-850,000tpa ~6% spodumene concentrate, and 321,000lbspa to 800,000lbspa of tantalite concentrate.
The low cost, long life and high quality Pilgangoora project has attracted a group of high quality, experienced global offtake partners including Ganfeng Lithium, General Lithium, Great Wall Motor Company and POSCO. Collectively, these customers account for 100% of current and Stage 2 spodumene production and provide Pilbara Minerals a strategic link into China's lithium market and the emerging South Korean lithium market.
Through its customers Pilbara Minerals is also pursuing a position in the downstream 'value-added' lithium market through the development of chemical conversion plants in South Korea and China.
Making the world a better place by enabling the global energy transformation: through our great people developing assets of scale to efficiently deliver high quality products.
Through conversations with its people, the Pilbara Purpose was born. It is the reason Pilbara Minerals does what it does. It is the Company's foundation and what drives and inspires the team in its work every day.
This purpose is underpinned by ‘what we stand for’, six commitments that are the heart of the Company's culture and how the team works together to achieve this purpose.
