extraction process of mineral spodumene cost

  In contrast to salar brine sources, extraction of lithium from spodumene, lepidolite, petalite, amblygonite, and eucryptite requires a wide range of processes. Because of the amount of energy consumption and materials required, lithium production from mining is a much more costly process than brine extraction, even though these minerals have a higher lithium content than the saltwater.

    Spodumene: Used as a lithium source mineral and as a gemstone

    Spodumene is a pyroxene mineral that is typically found in lithium-rich pegmatites. It is usually associated with other lithium minerals such as lepidolite , eucryptite, and petalite. Spodumene has a chemical composition of LiAlSi 2 O 6 but small amounts of sodium sometimes substitute for lithium.
