Community Engagement

Community engagement is a key part of our work. We recognise the value of local knowledge and that by encouraging empowerment and building relationships there can be long-term sustainable outcomes for all parties, as well as improved capacity to manage significant events such as expansion, closure and rehabilitation.

We are based in Roche, Cornwall. The local community is very important to us and we are always keen to engage with people, groups and organisations who are interested in what we do and want to find out more.

We estimate spending £275m during the construction phase of our project and creating more than 300 high value, full-time jobs once we are operational. Our indirect supply chain is likely to provide employment for more than 3000 people and our projected annual expenditure in Cornwall is predicted to be around £120m.

We know how lucky we are to be based in a beautiful part of the UK and are very grateful for the community’s support as we move towards production of much-needed battery grade lithium. Cornwall enjoys a global reputation for its mining heritage and is now poised to be the first place in Europe to supply an element vital to our renewable technology future.
