Anson produces first lithium carbonate

US-FOCUSED lithium brine hopeful Anson Resources has been one of the morning’s biggest movers, soaring some 24% on confirmation that it can produce lithium carbonate from its Paradox lithium project in Utah.

The product was extracted from 1000 litres of brine sampled from the Cane Creek 32-1 oil and gas well, and proved the super-saturated brines are amenable to precipitation in the lab.
