Atlas Lithium's Lithium Ore Concentrates to Battery Supply-Chain Grade

Atlas Lithium's Lithium Ore Concentrates to Battery Supply-Chain Grade

Atlas Lithium Corporation (NASDAQ: ATLX) ("Atlas Lithium" or the "Company"), a leading developer of hard-rock lithium assets, today announced that SGS Canada Inc.'s facility, located in Lakefield, Canada ("SGS Lakefield"), a premier center for independent metallurgical assays, produced over 10 kg of commercial-grade lithium concentrate from processing approximately 117 kg of representative ore from the Company's 100%-owned Minas Gerais Lithium Project using standard dense media separation ("DMS") technology. Processing of Atlas Lithium's ore showed easy separation, high recovery, and no significant contaminants. SGS Lakefield has been providing testing and analytical services to the mining industry since 1941 and has earned the reputation as a leading provider of bankable metallurgical services.

Marc Fogassa, Atlas Lithium's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "These results indicate that efficient and cost-effective processing using well-established DMS methods is possible for our ore. Our samples achieved commercial grade for use within established battery supply-chain processing routes. We believe that this is a key milestone as we further advance our project."

Marc Fogassa, and Igor Tkachenko, the Company's Vice President of Strategic Development, recently visited SGS Lakefield to meet its metallurgical experts on-site and to receive a sample of Atlas Lithium's concentrate. A photo of Massoud Aghamirian, Director of Metallurgical Analysis at SGS Lakefield, alongside Marc Fogassa during the site visit is attached to this release. A photo of the retrieved lithium concentrate sample is also included in this release.

Atlas Lithium expects to receive the finalized metallurgical testing report from SGS Lakefield in the coming weeks. Importantly, the data from this report is an essential component of the forthcoming Preliminary Economic Analysis ("PEA") of the Company's lithium project.

Howard Klein: It's Still Not Too Late to Invest in Lithium

The Investing News Network had the chance to talk with RK Equity’s Howard Klein at this year’s Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention about what’s been happening in the lithium space.

Speaking about the amount of lithium that will be needed to meet increasing demand from the electric vehicle industry and energy storage sector, Klein said there’s definitely been an awakening among market participants.

“The momentum of deal activity is going to accelerate,” he said on the sidelines of the Toronto-based event, held from March 5 to 8. “And (OEMs and battery makers) are trying not to appear as if they're panicked, but I feel that there's musical chairs, it's finally sinking in. But they're still balking because of all the misinformation out there.”

These Four Lithium Stocks Have Investors Charged Up


As the world transitions towards renewable energy and electric transportation, the demand for lithium, a key component in rechargeable batteries, is reaching unprecedented heights. In fact, the market for lithium-ion batteries alone is expected to triple in size by 2025, and the electric vehicle industry is projected to account for nearly half of the global demand for lithium by 2030.

Hard Work Needed as North America Builds Battery Metals Supply Chain

Geopolitical dynamics in the battery metals space have taken center stage in the past year as governments around the world continue to pursue green policies and wake up to supply chain vulnerabilities.

The Inflation Reduction Act in the US, Europe’s Critical Raw Materials Act and Canada’s Critical Minerals Strategy are just some of the pieces of legislation that have been put in place in recent months to ensure secure supply of raw materials to meet growing demand from the electric vehicle (EV) space, and ultimately reach ambitious net-zero targets.

Building out North America's lithium-ion battery supply chain is going to require batteries to be built in the region, Andrew Miller, chief operating officer at Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, said during a keynote presentation at this year’s Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, held in Toronto from March 5 to 8.
