Sayona Mining Limited, a North American lithium producer, has announced the results of a study combining its North American Lithium (NAL) operation and the nearby Authier Lithium Project. This study shows that the Abitibi lithium hub is financially and technically viable in the long term. Sayona Quebec, which owns NAL and Authier, is 75% owned by Sayona Mining and 25% owned by Piedmont Lithium Inc. The project is expected to generate total net revenue of A$7.6 billion, with estimated EBITDA of A$3.7 billion. The estimated net present value of A$2.2 billion is a substantial increase from NAL’s previous report. Sayona’s Managing Director, Brett Lynch, said the positive DFS reaffirmed the Company’s confidence in the long‐term value of the NAL operation.
Sayona Mining’s Revised Ore Reserve Estimate Enhances Project Economics
Sayona Mining Limited has announced a Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) for its North American Lithium (NAL) operation. The study includes a strategic review of Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves to enhance project economics and improve understanding of the mine’s block model. Although the Ore Reserves and Indicated Resources have been reduced or reclassified in the near term, there is potential to convert current Inferred Resources to Measured and Indicated categories through new drill programs. The DFS treats acquisition costs and restart capital invested as sunk costs. The NAL operation is on schedule and within budget, with production capacity of 226,000 tonnes per annum for the next four years.
