Gem mining sluices were a major hit at the Cleveland County Schools Science for a Day field trips, presented by The Schiele Museum of Natural History!

As students worked to identify various minerals, our geologists were on hand to help and share about the crucial role of geology in daily life. Students discovered how the gems they were mining are used in everyday products, ranging from glass and ceramics to paints and cosmetics.

It was a day of learning and fun for all, and we were certainly glad to be a part of the event!

What is spodumene?

Spodumene is a mineral that we plan to extract from the Carolina Lithium site before processing it into lithium hydroxide for battery manufacturers. It has one of the highest lithium contents among all known minerals and is a proven feed source for battery materials.

Spodumene is found in pegmatites (igneous rocks) along with other minerals such as quartz, feldspar, and mica, which we plan to separate from the spodumene and sell as byproducts to other industries.

Big news! We are excited to announce that the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality’s (NCDEQ) Division of Energy, Mineral, and Land Resources (DEMLR) has issued an approval of our mining permit for the construction, operation, and reclamation of our proposed Carolina Lithium project.

We thank the leadership and staff at NCDEQ and DEMLR for their diligence throughout the process and the members of our team who worked rigorously for more than two and a half years to ensure every aspect of our project met the state’s high standards for approval. The mining permit, which is subject to conditions both customary and specific to our type of project, is the precursor for the county rezoning process. Construction would commence following receipt of all required permits, rezoning approvals, and project financing activities.

Carolina Lithium is expected to contribute billions of dollars of economic output and several hundred jobs to Gaston County and North Carolina’s electrification economy. We look forward to continuing our engagement with the local community and the Gaston County Board of Commissioners as we prepare to further our project plans. bit.ly/4aAlcEO

Congratulations to Christina Holmes and John Hedgepeth for being selected as John Chavis Middle School’s Piedmont Lithium Power Players!

Christina is a versatile student-athlete who excels in soccer, track and field, basketball, and cheerleading. According to the Ladies’ Track and Field Coach Elishia Oliver, “Christina is a bright young lady who is always willing to try new things to the best of her abilities.”

John is a force to be reckoned with in wrestling, earning the title of county champion. He also shines in track and field, demonstrating a strong dedication to the sport over the last three years. “John is not only a standout athlete but also a leader both on and off the field,” says Men’s Track and Field Coach Eric Miller.

Piedmont Lithium geologists, Mike Mason and Emily Blackburn Winter were excited to host a group of highschoolers from Charlotte’s Mosaic School. The students are learning about energy production, and we shared how the exploration of hard rock lithium resources can power the electrification of transportation. We also discussed the importance of the Carolina Tin Spodumene Belt to U.S. energy security, and how we plan to responsibly develop our project to support local economic growth and North Carolina manufacturing. ...

We are proud to collaborate with Metso to design our planned Carolina Lithium and Tennessee Lithium projects with the innovative pressure leach technology for responsible lithium hydroxide production. Using soda ash, lime, and steam, this process eliminates the use of acid-roasting for a sodium-sulfate-free method for refining battery-grade lithium. We believe the entire conversion process is environmentally sustainable and safer for employees and our communities than conventional spodumene-to-hydroxide conversion methods. ... See MoreSee Less
