Brossard, Quebec TheNewswire - March 26, 2024 Charbone Hydrogen Corporation (TSXV: CH;OTCQB: CHHYF; FWB: K47) (the "Company" or "CHARBONE"), North America's only publicly traded pure-play green hydrogen company, today announced it is entering into the final stages of the site selection process in Oakland County, Michigan for CHARBONE's first green hydrogen facility in the United States. Further to the Company's December 4, 2023 project announcement Oakland County is the home of dozens of major automotive companies including numerous world headquarters, North American headquarters, and R&D facilities.

With the full support of the Oakland County Economic Development Department (the "OCED"), the Detroit Regional Partnership (the "DRP"), and the City of Detroit Sustainable Office, CHARBONE has been visiting, evaluating and assessing multiple brownfield sites for redevelopment potential. Now in the final stages of its selection process, the Company anticipates making a selection in the coming weeks. Additional key stakeholders such as the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (the "MEDC") and the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (the "EGLE") have also been actively involved.

CHARBONES's site selection approach to modular green hydrogen plant development is based on commercial real estate best practices and the group's collective expertise in developing alternative energy solutions that align with municipal, state and federal agency goals to leverage renewable energies for a sustainable future. Site readiness, highway proximity, program scalability, accessibility to reliable and non-intermittent renewable energy resources, and project support from local utilities are all contributing factors in final site selection.

CHARBONE's Chief Operating Officer, Daniel Charette, has also taken several face-to-face meetings with local and regional stakeholders, including public transit companies that are looking at Fuel Cell Buses and other potential green hydrogen off-takers. Additionally, Charette recently presented CHARBONE's Greater Detroit Area project vision at a recent Oakland County Mobility Advisory Council held at the Continental AG Auburn Hills campus.

" CHARBONE's North American green hydrogen production plans are aggressive, and we plan to be online and operating in both the US and Canada this year ," said Daniel Charette, COO of Charbone . "Our top priorities are to bring out Canadian project online this summer, and to fast track the Oakland County project and become the first green hydrogen production facility in Michigan before the end of 2024. We are engaged with all suppliers for electrolyser deliveries within these timeframes, and our scalable approach to project plant construction gives our teams the flexibility and agility to mobilize quickly. The amount of green hydrogen opportunities in the Detroit-area is simply staggering, and our plan is to capitalize on these as first-movers."

Additionally, CHARBONE is also announcing an increase by $100,000 of the secured convertible debentures with an arm's length investor FINEXCORP, announced on August 3, 2023, and January 31, 2024, for the purchase of related equipment. CHARBONE has also agreed with the holder to a change of the maturity date from March 30, 2025, to September 30, 2025. All the other terms would stay the same and will be issued upon the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and other customary closing conditions.

Lake Resources NL  Submission Of Production Environmental Impact Assessment

Lake Resources NL Submission Of Production Environmental Impact Assessment

Sydney, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Clean lithium developer Lake Resources N.L. (ASX:LKE) (FRA:LK1) (OTCMKTS:LLKKF) is pleased to report the submission of the Production Environmental Impact Assessment (the "Production EIA" or "EIA") for its flagship Kachi Project ("Kachi" or "the Project") to the Catamarca Ministry of Mining in Catamarca Province, Argentina. Lake's innovative and sustainable Project development plan will result in a small water footprint, amongst the lowest for lithium brine projects per tonne.

The Production EIA, which was submitted in accordance with Lake's operational timeline, is a statutory requirement under the Argentina mining and environmental regimes and is intended to demonstrate that due attention has been given to the potential impact of the mining operations on the environment and local community.

The EIA was prepared by Knight Piesold A.C.S.A., a global engineering consulting firm, in accordance with the General Environmental Law No. 25,675, the National Law No. 24,585 on Environmental Protection for Mining Activity in Argentina, (Annex III), the Mining Code of the Nation (Title 13, Section 2), the SAA Provision No. 74/2010 and the M.M. Resolution No. 1014/2023.

The EIA is based on the production scenario presented in the Definitive Feasibility Study in which lithium brine is extracted via production wells, pumped to the Direct Lithium Extraction ("DLE") plant for lithium recovery and then injected back into the subsurface via injection wells. The Lilac ion exchange process requires a fraction of the water required for evaporation ponds and absorption DLE technology.

Lake has also incorporated a Zero Liquid Discharge unit that further reduces freshwater consumption by about 75%. The injection of spent brine allows Lake to design a system that maximizes lithium recovery while maintaining the hydrological/hydrogeological system as close to baseline conditions as possible during operations. Other significant environmental benefits of Kachi include a smaller land footprint and lower solid waste output compared to traditional evaporation ponds and hard rock projects.

Lake's CEO, David Dickson said: "The timely submission of the EIA underscores Lake's firm commitment to conducting operations in a manner that prioritizes care for the environment and fosters collaboration with our neighboring communities. Kachi stands as a testament to our adoption of a prudent and groundbreaking approach to lithium brine extraction, aiming for the advancement of sustainable and responsible lithium production. We look forward to bringing future employment and economic growth to Catamarca Province, while contributing to the global energy transition."



About Lake Resources NL:

Lake Resources NL (ASX:LKE) (OTCMKTS:LLKKF) is a clean lithium developer utilising state-of-the-art ion exchange extraction technology for production of sustainable, high purity lithium from its flagship Kachi Project in Catamarca Province within the Lithium Triangle in Argentina among three other projects covering 220,000 ha.

This ion exchange extraction technology delivers a solution for two rising demands - high purity battery materials to avoid performance issues, and more sustainable, responsibly sourced materials with low carbon footprint and significant ESG benefits.
