Millennial Lithium - Advancing Premium Portfolio in Argentina's Lithium Belt

Millennial Lithium – Advancing Premium Portfolio in Argentina’s Lithium Belt


Millennial Lithium (TSXV:ML;OTCQB:MLNLF) is a resource extraction company focused on becoming one of Argentina’s next lithium producers. Argentina is a top-tier mining jurisdiction and hosts some of the world’s largest lithium resources. Millennial Lithium is building a strong portfolio of lithium projects in the Argentinean belt of South America’s Lithium Triangle. The company’s flagship project is the advanced-stage Pastos Grandes lithium project in Salta Province, the main hub for lithium projects in Argentina.

Millennial Lithium’s other projects include the Cauchari East in Jujuy Province and the Cruz property in Salta Province. Cauchari East is adjacent to and contiguous with both Lithium America’s Cauchari Project and Orocobre’s producing Orlaroz Mine. Cruz is adjacent to Enirgi Group’s Rincon Project which has a definitive feasibility study as well as reserves and measured/indicated resources totaling 4.7 million tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent.

The company is nearing completion of a Phase 1 drilling program at Pastos Grandes that includes three wells and is intended to establish an initial resource estimate on the project. The results from the first two wells confirm favorable grades (averaging 395 mg/l lithium) and brine chemistry that extends to depth. Results from the third well are due out in the first quarter of 2017. The company is on track to commence upcoming drill programs at both Cauchari and Cruz in 2017.

Ian Scarr, a well-known geologist in Argentina’s Salta Province, is the Vice President of Exploration and Development for Millennial Lithium. Scarr was instrumental in bringing the Sal de Vida lithium Brine project in Argentina through feasibility with Galaxy Resources. He also completed the definitive feasibility study on the Rincon project with Enirgi Group.

Investment Highlights

  • Lithium demand is expected to grow at an annual rate of 16 percent through 2025.
  • South American brine production is the most cost-competitive compared to other lithium sources.
  • Millennial is fast-tracking Pastos Grandes towards production with a goal of being a key player in Argentina’s growing lithium sector.
  • Expanding portfolio of highly prospective lithium projects covering over 20,000 hectares within the Argentinean belt of the South American lithium triangle.
  • World-class technical team and a management team of industry professionals with strong political and business relationships within Argentina.
  • Steady stream of news flow expected with active exploration campaigns on at least three properties in 2017.
Millennial Lithium - Advancing Premium Portfolio in Argentina's Lithium Belt

Millennial is acquiring strategically located projects in the Argentinean belt of the South American Lithium Triangle.

Flagship Property: Pastos Grandes

Advanced-stage development project strategically located in the proli­fic Salta Province.

The Pastos Grandes Lithium Project covers 1,221 hectares of the Pastos Grandes Salar at an elevation of 3,800 meters and is located 231 kilometers from the city of Salta. Millennial Lithium has the option to acquire a 100 percent interest in the property.

Pastos Grandes is accessible year-round via highway and roads from Salta. Existing infrastructure in the area includes an electrical power line, gas pipeline, and water system as well as nearby rail to Chile and Buenos Aires.

The previous operator completed more than $4 million in historical exploration on the property between 2011 and 2012, including six wells, CSAMT and SEV surveys, and pilot plant evaporation tests on site.

Sampling completed at Pastos Grandes shows the salar contains brines with a density of 1.2 mg/ml and a lithium grade of 400 mg/l to 600 mg/l with some values exceeding 3,000 mg/l lithium.

Fast-tracking toward production

Millennial Lithium is working to bring Pastos Grandes into commercial production within three years. The company has planned a process flowsheet that uses traditional processes and can be optimized for scalability.

Phase 1 exploration encounters favorable grades and depth

Millennial commenced a Phase I lithium brine drilling program in November 2016 with a goal of delineating a continuous resource block and completing an initial resource estimate for Pastos Grandes. The results from the first two exploration wells confirmed that the brine of the salar extends to much greater depths than encountered in past exploration.

Brine samples collected from the first well, from surface to 355 meters, contained an average lithium grade of 395 mg/L with individual lithium grades as high as 471 mg/L. Brine samples collected from the second well, from 71 to 400 meters, contained an average lithium grade of 389 mg/L with individual samples as high as 399 mg/L lithium. These average grades from the first two wells are significantly higher than the results reported in historical drilling.

Phase I drilling was confined to the Northern portion of the salar. Millennial Lithium also plans to conduct drilling in the southern end of the salar where the company expects lithium values to be higher. Two historical wells drilled in 2011 in the southern portion of Pastos Grandes returned average lithium grades of 558 mg/L and 566 mg/L, significantly higher than the historical wells in the Northern portion.

Project Pipeline

Cauchari East

Orocobre is producing lithium carbonate from the same salar that extends beneath Millennial’s Cauchari East property.

The Cauchari East lithium project is located 280 kilometers from San Salvador, the capital city of Jujuy Province. The property covers nearly 3,000 hectares in the eastern portion of the Cauchari salar, the deepest part of the salar according to gravity surveys.

Both Orocobre and Lithium Americas have been exploring the Cauchari salar since 2009. Lithium America’s main resource and reserve is within 5 kilometers west of Millennial Lithium’s Cauchari East. The 2010 Technical Report for the Cauchari salar filed by Orocobre contains an extensive dataset which confirms that the brine resource extends to the east of the basin and toward Cauchari East.

Millennial Lithium plans to begin drilling at Cauchari East in the second quarter of 2017.

Cruz Project

Adjacent to Enirgi Group’s Rincon Project which has a definitive feasibility study and 4.7 million tonnes of LCE reserves and resources.

Millennial Lithium’s Cruz Project covers 2,500 hectares of the northern portion of the Pocitos salar in Salta Province.

The Cruz property lies at the junction of a large N-S fault system and the Rincon Volcano—the possible source of the nearby Rincon salar lithium brine.

Historical government-conducted surface sampling in the 1970s south of the Cruz property resulted in lithium values as high as 400 mg/l. Further sampling completed more recently has shown higher lithium concentrations along deep faults which may be potential conduits for lithium-bearing fluids emitted from the Rincon Volcano.

Millennial Lithium is set to commence drilling at Cruz in the first quarter of 2017.
