The Greenbushes Lithium Mine is located approximately 250km south of Perth, and is the largest deposit of spodumene in the world, a lithium bearing mineral found in up to 50 percent of the hard rock mined at Greenbushes.

It is owned and operated by Talison Lithium, a joint venture between TLEA and US miner Albermarle Corporation.
