Clean TeQ’ s primary focus is on the development of our 100% owned Clean TeQ Sunrise Nickel/Cobalt/Scandium Project in NSW, Australia.
Clean TeQ Sunrise hosts a unique laterite resource rich in nickel, cobalt and scandium. The combination of this outstanding deposit and our proprietary ion exchange processing technology will position us as one of the largest and lowest cost suppliers of key cathode raw materials – nickel sulphate and cobalt sulphate – to the lithium-ion battery market
Clean TeQ Sunrise will also produce significant quantities of scandium, a critical element for the next generation of light-weight aluminium alloys for transportation markets.
Location & Infrastructure
Clean TeQ Sunrise is located 350km WNW of Sydney with outstanding access to key infrastructure including roads, rail, gas and electricity, as well as being in close proximity to the local communities of Condobolin, Parkes, Forbes and Dubbo.
Mining & Processing
Clean TeQ Sunrise’s favourable geology will allow ore to be mined via shallow open pit before entering a four stage processing flow sheet. These key steps include:
- Ore preparation
- High Pressure Acid leach
- Clean iX resin in pulp extraction circuit
- Refinery including solvent extraction and crystalisation
