Results of the Clayton Valley feasibility study. Century released the results of a feasibility study (FS) for its Clayton Valley lithium project in Nevada. A phased approach was adopted. Phase I and II mining rates of 7,500 tonnes per day and 15,000 tonnes per day, respectively, are maintained over five years each, while the Phase III mining rate of 22,500 tonnes per day is maintained for 30 years. The production plan reflects a life-of-mine average of 34,000 tonnes per year of battery-grade lithium carbonate or 13,000 tonnes and 27,000 tonnes per year during Phases I and II, respectively, and 41,000 tonnes per year during Phase III.

Key assumptions and net present value. Key assumptions include: 1) initial capital expenditures of $1.5 billion, $651 million for Phase II, and $1.3 billion for Phase III, 2) a lithium carbonate price of $24,000 per tonne, 3) average operating cost of $8,223 per tonne of lithium carbonate produced, or $2,766 per tonne after sales of surplus sodium hydroxide, 4) a lithium recovery rate of 78%, and 5) sustaining capital of $315 million over the life of the project. Based on an 8% discount rate, the project is expected to generate an after-tax net present value of $3.01 billion and 17.1% internal rate of return.
