Valoriza Minería and Plymouth Minerals join to develop a new Lithium Project in Cáceres


Valoriza Minería, through its subsidiary Tecnología Extremeña del Litio, enters into an agreement with Plymouth Minerals for the potential development of the San José lithium-tin project in the Spanish region of Extremadura.

The San José Mine is a historical tin-lithium mine that operated in the 1960's with subsequent exploration and feasibility studies between 1985 and 1991 focused on abundant lithium and tin mineralization. Historical underground mining activities deployed multiple shafts and adits with a gravity concentration plant used to process the ore on site. The historical exploration and development work included 8,399 m of drilling as well as technical work and feasibility studies indicating potential recoveries of 90% Li and 80% Sn.
