Pilbara Minerals is a leading ASX-listed pure-play lithium company, with 100% ownership of the world-class Pilgangoora Lithium-Tantalum Project – the largest independent hard-rock lithium operation in the world.
Located in Western Australia’s resource-rich Pilbara region, the Pilgangoora Project’s high-grade lithia resource, valuable tantalum by-product, outstanding scale and flexibility supports a low-cost operation. It is one of the only operating lithium assets with available offtake globally. Read more about the current Mineral Resource and Reserve here.
The Company has a flexible operating regime, with two separate processing facilities offering the potential for a multi-stage expansion and significant optionality to respond to customer and market requirements.
Pilbara Minerals produces a ~6% spodumene concentrate and as a by-product of its process a +5% primary tantalite concentrate.
Spodumene concentrate is sold to a leading global network of offtake partners, including General Lithium, Ganfeng Lithium, Great Wall Motors, POSCO, and Yibin Tianyi (an associate of CATL). These companies link Pilbara Minerals to some of the largest battery manufacturers globally and across the entire electric vehicle supply chain. Read more about the offtake agreements here.
To expand its sales portfolio, Pilbara Minerals is exploring a new digital platform called the 'Battery Material Exchange' to sell future unallocated spodumene concentrate product on the open market. Read more here.
Pilbara Minerals has a highly credentialed, well-respected team with experience in building and operating mining projects. The team has delivered the initial Pilgangoora Project from discovery to production in under four years and has since demonstrated a deft and adaptable operating strategy.

With global demand for lithium-ion batteries expected to undergo unprecedented growth over the coming decades, the opportunity to manufacture high-value, battery-grade lithium products through downstream processing has the potential to deliver significant additional value and enhance project returns for Pilbara Minerals.
Pilbara Minerals is pursuing a growth and diversification strategy to become a sustainable, low-cost lithium producer and fully integrated lithium raw materials and chemicals supplier in the years to come.
Through a downstream partnership with POSCO for the proposed joint development of a lithium chemical conversion facility in South Korea and the potential for a new refining process to produce a “mid-stream product (a concentrated lithium salt) from the Pilgangoora Project to meet growing demand across the globe.
