The licence is for 30 years and has been issued by the Saxony State Mining Authority.

A feasibility study is underway to demonstrate Zinnwald can produce higher value downstream lithium for battery and car use and is expected to be completed in mid-2019

Drilling so far has seen four of out of 15 planned infill drilling holes  completed while bulk samples at the historic mine at the site have now been sent for testing.
