World's First: HOT Pioneers Intelligent Lithium Extraction, Ushering in an Era of Comprehensive Intelligent Operations in Brine Lithium Industry!

Exciting news! HOT in collaboration with BANGKOG CO Brine Lithium Mine in Tibet, has inked a momentous partnership by officially signing a comprehensive intelligent contract for the extraction of brine, lithium processing, and brine recycling. Simultaneously, we have also signed a full-scope intelligent operational services contract covering the entire mining lifecycle. This significant collaboration marks the commencement of a new era in the brine lithium industry, introducing the world's first-ever intelligent system for brine lithium extraction!

BANGKOG CO Brine Lithium Mine: Situated within the Tibet Autonomous Region, BANGKOG CO Brine Lithium Mine covers an expansive area of 162.4631 square kilometers. The mine hosts two types of resources, solid and liquid, with solid resources predominantly consisting of hectorite, while the liquid resources contain valuable lithium, boron, and potassium minerals. In recent years, the focus has primarily been on the extraction of solid hectorite, leaving the liquid lithium-boron-potassium resources largely untapped. The liquid brine in BANGKOG CO Brine Lithium Mine boasts high mineralization, with confirmed resources of boron (B2O3) at 2.71 million tons, lithium (LiCl) at 1.03 million tons, potassium (KCl) at 19.06 million tons, and bromide (Br-) at 0.0612 million tons. It's worth noting that the average lithium chloride (LiCl) content in the shallow brine water is approximately 1,270.29 milligrams per liter, significantly exceeding industrial standards, making it ideal for direct lithium extraction.

HOT will undertake the following projects in two phases:

·Design and construction of the brine intelligent project.

·Implementation of the brine intelligent project construction.

·Operation and management of the brine intelligent project system.

This project can achieve mechanization, automation, cost reduction, efficiency enhancement, and heightened safety, ultimately boosting the company's economic benefits. Specifically, this includes:

·Enhancing overall workforce efficiency and establishing new production organization methods.

·Ensuring product quality stability, increasing product recovery rates, and enhancing economic benefits.

·Elevating comprehensive management capabilities to achieve precision management.

·The ultimate goal is to realize a "hands-off, with human supervision" production site, achieving integrated monitoring, management, and control.
