The Mt Marion Lithium Project is located approximately 40km south west of Kalgoorlie, Western Australia and is jointly owned by Neometals Ltd (13.8%), one of China's largest lithium producers Jiangxi Ganfeng Lithium Co., Ltd (43.1%) and a local mining services business (43.1%).


  • Construction commenced in DecQ 2015.
  • Commissioning in mid-2016.
  • MinRes funds / operates the project from mine to port
  • Current JORC-compliant resource of 77.8Mt @ 1.37% Li2O.
  • 6 deposits all open along strike and at depth.
  • Ore fresh from surface and visually distinguishable (white).


Neometals initially signed a farm-in agreement in October 2009 with a local mining services business (MinRes) which saw Neometals retain 100% ownership of the project while MinRes would fund all development costs and build, own and operate the processing facilities in order to earn a 40% share of net profit.

In February 2011 this agreement was amended so that instead of MinRes having a right to 40% profit from sales, they will now have a direct 30% ownership of the project.

In September 2015, an agreement was executed between Neometals, MinRes and Jiangxi Ganfeng Lithium which resulted in Ganfeng taking a 25% in the Mt Marion mine and also agreeing to a life-of-mine offtake agreement.
