Cornish Lithium, the pioneering mineral exploration and development company that is supporting the UK’s transition to renewable energy by contributing to a secure, domestic supply of lithium for electric vehicles and renewable power storage batteries, is hosting a presentation event for the local community about its hard rock lithium project at Trelavour, which is located within a repurposed china clay pit at St Dennis near St Austell.

The event will take place on Wednesday 20th September at 6.30pm at The Pitch Sports Bar in Boscawen Park, the home of St Dennis AFC, and offer the opportunity for local residents to learn how this project is progressing, to meet the Company’s management team and to ask questions about its current activities and future plans.

By 2030, the UK is expected to require 80,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent for electric car batteries. Lithium is therefore fundamental to the country’s electric car future and the resurgence of the UK’s automotive industry.

It is also used in laptops and smartphones – the everyday electronic devices upon which most of us rely. 

Cornish Lithium plans to produce lithium on a commercial basis at the Trelavour site by the end of 2026, utilising environmentally-responsible methods of hard rock extraction. It aims to contribute around 10% of the UK’s annual requirement of this essential battery metal, for which global demand outstrips supply.

The landmark US$67 million (£53.6 million) investment package that the Company has recently received from a group of leading institutional investors, led by the UK Infrastructure Bank alongside The Energy & Minerals Group and TechMet, will enable Cornish Lithium to accelerate its Trelavour Project to construction-ready status and create c.250 highly-skilled jobs.

Members of the local community who would like to attend this presentation are invited to book their free place via the link on the Cornish Lithium website,, or can simply arrive at the event without reserving a space.
