    Thacker Pass is the largest known lithium resource in the United States and the next large-scale lithium mine. The project has all permits required to commence construction, which is expected to start in 2023. Engineering design and procurement of long-lead equipment is underway, with early works being coordinated. This project falls under the Lithium Americas umbrella of Lithium Nevada Corporation (LNC). Project site is located -3 hours northeast of Reno at the southern end of the McDermitt Caldera in Humboldt County, NV, and -25 miles from the Nevada-Oregon border (or -1 hour northwest of Winnemucca, NV). The Project will be developed as an open-pit mining operation using conventional, continuous mining equipment. Given the soft, clay nature of the deposit, minimal blasting and crushing is anticipated. The ore will then be processed in a leaching circuit using sulfuric acid to liberate the lithium from the claystone. Following the leaching process, the lithium bearing solution will be purified using crystallizers and reagents to produce battery-quality Li2CO3. The Thacker Pass site has a flat and expansive terrain which allows for a very compact footprint and for future potential expansions. Bechtel will have responsibility for the full EPC/EPCM scope.
