The first ever Lithium concentrate was produced in Namibia by a Canadian firm, Desert Lion Energy Corporation in December last year.

The firm expects to transition from a Lithium explorer and developer to a producer, according to the President and Chief Executive Officer of the firm, Tim Johnston.

“The concentrate was produced from stockpiled material at the Company’s Lithium project, which is located approximately 30 Km southeast of Karibib and 210 Km southeast of Windhoek, the nation’s capital. This is a great milestone the firm has achieved. We are looking forward to finding suitable prospective investors to come on board so that we can expand the operation of the firm” he said.
