Bougouni, Mali

Key Information:


180km south of Bamako capital of Mali



Project Status

Development, expected production start: second half of 2021


21.3Mt Mineral Resource


Sogola-Baoule: 12.2Mt at 1.1% Li2O, Ngoualana: 5.1Mt at 1.2% Li2O (9% increase), 

Boumou: 4Mt at 1.02% Li2O (81% increase)


The Bougouni ore body comprises of pegmatites hosted in an intruded sequence of the Birimian age pelitic metasediments and amphibolites of the Leo-Man Shield.


Project Owners & Status:

Bougouni Lithium project is 100% owned by Kodal Minerals. 

Kodal has implemented an accelerated exploration and development programme aimed at advancing the project into production in as short timeframe as practicable. In February 2019, the Company announced an updated JORC Mineral Resource for the Bougouni Project of 21.3Mt at 1.11% Li2O, with 11.6Mt at 1.13% Li2O in the Indicated category and 9.7Mt at 1.08% Li2O in the Inferred category. This updated Mineral Resource is 23% higher than the original Maiden Mineral Resource released in September 2018, with over 55% of the Resource now in the Indicated category.


Available Data:

  • JORC
  • Drill results
  • Assay



The Bougouni project area can be accessed through an existing sealed road from Bamako. Since the project is located in a remote location, internationally sourced goods, reagents, and consumables will be delivered to the site through Abidjan or San Pedro ports in Côte d’Ivoire.

Kodal Minerals also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Mali Lithium, the developer of Goulamina lithium project in the same region, to review the establishment of certain common infrastructure facilities for both the projects in January 2020.
