Jiangxi Jiuling New Energy Co., Ltd. was established in March 2011, with Jiuling New Energy Group relying on the unique resource advantages of Jiuling Mountains, relying on the disciplinary and technological advantages of Jiangxi University of Science and Technology to develop a full set of green and high-value production process integrating mining, separation and metallurgy, taking the lead in overcoming the technical difficulties of extracting lithium from iron-lithium mica, and successfully completed a 10,000-ton lithium carbonate production line with lithium-mica in February 2018.

It is a lithium mining and lithium carbonate production enterprise in the upper reaches of the new energy automobile industry chain, and a lithium mica mine with its own property rights. and has successfully opened the "lithium mica ore-concentrate separation-lithium sulfate brine-industrial lithium carbonate-battery lithium carbonate" production line, has formed outstanding advantages in all aspects of the industrial chain.

Feiyu New Energy said that compared with spodumene concentrate, the advantages of producing lithium mica are mainly in the following aspects:

First, the cost of lithium mica is much lower than that of spodumene concentrate. At present, we have very rich ore resources, with a mineral processing capacity of 1 million tons. In addition, the freight savings compared with spodumene concentrate are not small.

Second, we use lithium mica to extract lithium products is only one of them, the production process is lithium mica raw ore-concentrate-lithium sulfate brine-industrial grade lithium carbonate-battery grade lithium carbonate, in the lithium extraction process will produce more by-products, mainly including tantalum, niobium and tin, the by-product value can reach 17000 yuan / ton.

Third, lithium mica in the process of extracting lithium carbonate electricity, we have more selectivity, according to market demand to choose to produce industrial-grade lithium carbonate and battery-grade lithium carbonate, relatively speaking, the processing cost of industrial carbon to electric carbon is not high.
