According to Tawana, a 3250t haulage of concentrate has commenced from the Bald Hill Lithium and Tantalum Mine, and is scheduled to depart from the Port of Esperance on 2 May. A larger shipment of Bald Hill product is also expected later in May.

Bald Hill, a joint venture project between Tawana and AMAL, is the first Australian mine to commence spodumene production since 2016.
Tawana and AMAL have engaged Qube Bulk to provide product loading, haulage, storage and ship loading.
Tawana’s Managing Director Mark Calderwood said “Completion of the logistics around the initial shipment of lithium concentrate represents another key milestone for the mine. We currently have about 4,000t of the high-grade concentrate on site.”
