Cornwall Water Sampling Campaign

Li4UK have undertaken a successful surface water sampling campaign across Cornwall.  To reconcile the distribution of lithium contained in potential major basins and ground water systems across the UK, Li4UK targeted known sites of mineralisation and upwelling water sources. Several localities were assessed across Cornwall

Li4UK Displays Lithium Rocks at the Cenex-LCV 2019 Show

Cenex – LCV – 2019 is the UK’s premier low carbon vehicle event. The Faraday Battery Challenge – part of the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Funds aims to make the UK the go-to place for all aspects of research, development, scale up and commercialisation of battery technology – Li4UK is the first project funded by the Faraday Battery Challenge which looks at upsteam supply issues. The project addresses critical missing links in the UK battery materials supply chain and identifies potential UK resources and extractive technologies to ensure that lithium can be supplied from UK sources. The event held 4-5 September 2019 at the Millbrook Testing Ground, Bedford attracted key players from the EV sector. Li4UK was asked by the Faraday Institute to supply some examples of British Lithium bearing rocks to display on their stand as part of the show. The stand generated significant interest with many expressing surprise that lithium bearing minerals were to be found in the UK. Jacqui Murray – Deputy Director of the Faraday Battery Challenge was one of the first to examine rocks collected by NHM/Cornish Lithium Ltd as part of the summer 2019 field sampling activities that kicked off the Li4UK Project.
