Since process development work was re-started in 2013, we have been able to produce a petalite concentrate at the bench scale with over 4.0% lithium oxide content and less than 0.01% iron oxide. Such extremely low iron levels make this material very attractive to glass manufacturers, since iron is otherwise a contaminant in glass manufacturing."
