Kathy Hicks, Managing Director of Carrak Consulting, is delighted to join Cornish Lithium’s team as an Advisory Environmental Consultant on their hard rock lithium project at Trelavour, near St Austell.

Cornish Lithium is an innovative mineral exploration and development company focussed on the sustainable extraction of lithium and other battery metals in Cornwall. The Trelavour project is situated in a china clay pit and its development is expected to benefit from existing mining infrastructure in the region.

Following the success of an initial campaign in 2020, Cornish Lithium has recently embarked on a second drilling programme, to further define the lithium-enriched granite at Trelavour, and the Company will soon be commencing a Scoping Study with leading industry experts. Kathy is working with the ESG team to ensure that environmental sensitivities are understood and characterised at this early conceptual stage, ahead of infrastructure siting and design decisions. She will also be involved in predicting key requirements for planning, permitting and related environmental assessments as the project progresses.
