Enjoy this immersive 360º site tour of Orocobre’s Olaroz Lithium Facility (located in Jujuy Province, Argentina). The operations are situated at an altitude of 4,000 metres above sea level and produce lithium carbonate from the Salar de Olaroz brine resource, which contains high concentrations of lithium and potash brine. The Olaroz Lithium Facility is a joint venture project built in partnership with Orocobre Limited, Japanese trading giant Toyota Tsusho Corporation (TTC) and the mining investment company owned by the provincial Government of Jujuy, Jujuy Energia y Mineria Sociedad del Estado (JEMSE). The Olaroz Lithium Project Joint Venture is operated through Orocobre’s Argentine subsidiary, Sales de Jujuy S.A.

Salar de Olaroz is a long life, high quality resource which can sustain continuous production for forty-plus years with only 15% of the defined resource extracted. The original design of the Olaroz Lithium Facility allows for future developments and/or expansion plans to occur in line with market demand. The estimated measured and indicated resource of 1,752 million cubic metres of brine at 690 mg/L Lithium, 5,730 mg/L Potassium and 1,050 mg/L Boron at the Olaroz Facility equates to 6.4 million tonnes of lithium carbonate and 19.3 million tonnes of potash (potassium chloride) based on 5.32 tonnes of lithium carbonate being equivalent to 1 tonne of lithium and 1.91 tonnes of potash being equivalent to one tonne of potassium.
