Cornish Lithium to hold further community engagement sessions for its proposed Trelavour Project and provides drilling update for its Twelveheads research borehole

Cornish Lithium, the pioneering mineral exploration and development company that is headquartered at the Tremough Innovation Centre in Penryn, has announced details of further community engagement sessions relating to its Trelavour Lithium Project, which is located within a non-operational china clay pit near St Austell.  Lithium is a vital metal that is used in the production of modern batteries. Global demand for it is increasing, primarily due to the growing adoption of electric vehicles. The granite rock which underlies Cornwall contains lithium-rich minerals and Cornish Lithium is assessing the potential to produce lithium from these minerals in an environmentally-responsible manner.

As part of its stakeholder engagement plan for the Trelavour Project, the Company is hosting four further sessions to enable the local community to find out more about its current and upcoming development plans. These include environmental surveys and studies as well as the next phase of drilling at the site. Two drop-in sessions will be held at the Treverbyn Parish Council Office and a further two will take place at the Brannel Room in St Stephen, as follows:




Thursday 1 September 2022

Treverbyn Parish Council Office

5pm to 7pm

Saturday 3 September 2022

Thursday 15 September 2022

Pat Forward, Chief Operating Officer for Cornish Lithium, commented: “We look forward to meeting more local residents and encourage as many people as possible to attend.  These drop-in sessions provide us with an opportunity to explain our next phase of development  at the Trelavour Project  and offer a forum for members of the community to share their views. The Cornish Lithium team will be on hand to discuss and address any questions or concerns.”

Twelveheads Drilling Update

Following encouraging testing of the geological structures that were encountered during drilling, Cornish Lithium has decided to deepen its research borehole at Twelveheads. A new drilling rig has arrived on site and is currently being commissioned.

Cornish Lithium is expecting to carry out a further two-three weeks of drilling. Drilling operations are due to commence in early September followed by two-three weeks of testing at the site. This will be completed under an extension of the Company’s original permissions from Cornwall Council.
