South American investment French mining group Eramet has given the go-ahead for its lithium development project in Argentina.

"In Argentina, where lithium industrial production could start at end-2021, the Salta Provincial Mining Secretariat validated the environmental and social impact study of the plant and the industrial training centre as well as the request for tax stability. The Centenario deposit contains drainable resources estimated at nearly 10 million tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent,” Eramet said in a statement.

On a related note, the French miner also internally authorised its manga-nese ore production expansion investment in Moanda, in Gabon.
