Sunrise Battery Materials Complex
Sunrise Energy Metals is progressing its world-class Sunrise nickel, cobalt, scandium project in New South Wales, utilising its Clean-iX® technology. The Sunrise Project is one of the largest and most cobalt-rich nickel laterite deposits in the world and is development-ready, with all key permits and approvals in place. The Sunrise Project is also one of the largest and highest grade scandium deposits globally.
The Sunrise Project’s unique mineral resource, when combined with the company’s proprietary ion-exchange extraction and purification processing technology, has the potential to meet a significant portion of global demand for the raw materials needed to help expand the lithium-ion battery industry, as well as providing scandium for production of the next generation of lightweight aluminium alloys for key transportation markets.
A Project Execution Plan was completed in September 2020, which highlighted the Project’s global importance as a sustainable, long-life, low-cost source of high purity cobalt and nickel sulphates for the battery revolution.
