Document Description
Simbol, Inc. is proposing to construct and operate the SmCP-1, a commercial mineral extraction plant in the Salton Sea Known Geothermal Resource Area. The facility would use geothermal brine from the existing HR-1 geothermal flash plant to produce lithium carbonate, lithium hydroxide, hydrochloric acid, zinc, and manganese products for commercial sale. After the geothermal brine is processed, it would be returned to HR-1 for injection into the geothermal reservoir. In addition to the mineral extraction and processing facilities, the project includes geothermal brine supply/return pipelines, new driveway access from Davis Road and from McDonald Road, a new power line and substation, paving McDonald Road, between SR 111 and English Road and three options for off-site upgrades to the Imperial Irrigation District's existing transmission system.
