Notes
1 Grab samples are selective, and the selected nature of such sampling does not necessarily reflect potential lithium contents expected from future drill testing, however, they do indicate the presence of lithium mineralization and mineralizing systems in the surface rocks collected.

2 The LIBS portable analyser has been calibrated at the factory and has been more finely calibrated with internally made standards of TLC mineralization; although correlation between LIBS and geochemical analyses are high, it is only used here as indicative of lithium mineralization.

American Lithium

Overview

Even with surging global lithium demand, political powerhouses like the US are concerned about its critical minerals supply chains in meeting those growing demands. As the US reviews its critical supply chain risks, lithium mining companies operating in the Americas present the potential to turn the tides of critical mineral market vulnerabilities.

American Lithium (TSXV:LI, OTCQB:LIACF, XFRA:5LA1) is a top TSX Venture 50 company focused on exploring and developing high-quality lithium deposits within mining-friendly jurisdictions throughout the Americas. The company is currently operating its Tonopah Lithium Claims (TLC) project located in the highly prospective mining Esmeralda lithium district in Nevada.

The 100 percent owned TLC project hosts overwhelming operational and geological advantages. Its unique mineralogy, lack of deleterious elements and favorable processing conditions primes project development for fast track potential.

The project boasts excellent existing infrastructure and strategic positioning in the top mining investment jurisdiction of Nevada. The property leverages proximity to paved roads, electricity, water networks and skilled local labor. Additionally, premier solar conditions across the geographic region point to some of the world’s lowest power and natural gas costs.

The TLC project has one of the fastest processing times relative to its peers. Beneficiate samples taken from TLC achieved a 49 percent mass reduction while increasing lithium grade by 66 percent, and subsequent leach testing extracted 96 percent of the lithium from upgraded samples.

A 43-101 compliant technical report for TLC shows a measured and indicated resource of 5.37 million tonnes lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) and another 1.76 million tonnes LCE inferred.

In March 2021, the U.S. Department of Energy Advanced Manufacturing Office selected American Lithium as a co-recipient of a grant funding 50 percent of the capital cost for a US$4.5 million lithium extraction hydroxide pilot plant.

This grant provides funding to complete field demonstration of selective leaching, purification and electrochemical production of battery-grade lithium hydroxide precursors from US claystone deposits like the TLC project. This announcement further legitimizes American Lithium as a major player in tackling the US’ domestic lithium supply problem.

The company has a robust capital structure and tight shareholder portfolio. Its market cap stands at US$141.8 million, with key shareholders largely consisting of retail investors, management and insiders. American Lithium currently has zero debt.

The American Lithium management team has a proven history of returning value to shareholders and years of combined experience in mineral exploration, resource development and project management. The company is led by CEO Andrew Bowering, who has founded, funded and grown a number of exploration companies in the last 30 years. Part of this roster are Cap-Ex Iron Ore (now ML Gold), Prime Mining (TSXV:PRYM), and Millennial Lithium (TSXV:ML).

American Lithium’s Key Projects

Tonopah Lithium Claims (TLC) Project

The TLC project spans 6,000 acres and is located five miles from Tonopah, Nevada, a historic regional mining center. The property hosts concentrated lithium mineralization up to 80 meters thick and widespread lateral extension.

In 2019, the company conducted an extensive sampling program that completed 18 reverse circulation drill holes and an additional five core drill holes. This program proved the presence of world-class lithium grades as high as 2,600ppm and laterally extensive mineralization for miles.

The alluvial deposit leverages unique mineralogy that originates from surrounding volcanic tuffs washed into a lacustrine freshwater basin to form sedimentary claystone. This geological profile enhances battery-grade lithium salt production potential and outstandingly short processing times. This perfect storm of mineralogy and operational advantages presents TLC with scalable production prospects compared to similar lithium projects.

The project’s near-term production plan includes completing a PEA into a PFS and submitting a Plan of Operations in 2021. Additionally, the company intends to design and test a pilot facility for later extraction facility construction.

Overview

Lithium prices have surged in the new year as an earlier than expected supply shortage, combined with the well-established battery and electrification thematic, fuels robust global demand. With only one operating lithium mine in North America, the United States has recognised its looming domestic lithium supply problem. In response, the National Blueprint for Lithium Batteries was developed to supply the rapidly growing EV market, support long-term U.S. economic competitiveness and meet national security requirements.

Already home to Electrovaya’s 200MWh facility in Ontario, Canada is considered a cornerstone of the battery supply chain and an important partner to the US. In recognition of this, UK-based Britishvolt and locally based Stromvolt are planning new gigawatt-hour scale cell manufacturing facilities in Canada. Naturally, companies with lithium projects proximate to growing downstream infrastructure present an interesting opportunity for investors.

Green Technology Metals Limited (ASX:GT1) is a mineral exploration company that recently listed on the ASX and is focused on the sustainable development of a portfolio of high-grade lithium projects in Ontario, Canada. The company’s current exploration program is targeting rapid and substantial expansion of what is already a significant resource base. Targeted future development of its lithium projects is focused on utilisation of regional low-carbon power sources, most particularly significant hydro power options. Green Technology Metals is led by a premier Board and senior management team with a track record of successfully delivering sustainable hard-rock lithium projects around the world.

Green Technology Metals

“We are perfectly located right in the beating heart of a growing North American battery ecosphere. You've got all of the downstream players nearby –– lithium converters and battery makers are popping up everywhere, said Green Technology Metals CEO Luke Cox.

Company Highlights

  • Phase 1 11-hole 3,500m drilling program at Seymour underway and due for completion in March 2022. Assay results for the first completed step-out hole have returned a thick and continuous intercept of 40m @ 1.54% Li2O (from 244m downhole), confirming the company’s geological modelling and drill targeting.
  • A sustainability focused business with strong ESG credentials. Green Technology Metals is actively evaluating low-carbon energy solutions and is targeting access to the Hydro One hydro power interconnector, delivering responsibly sourced power to future development of its lithium assets.
  • The company is led by a proven hard-rock lithium team with a successful track record of project delivery, including John Young (founder of Pilbara Minerals Limited, ASX:PLS, Mkt Cap A$6.2bn), Cameron Henry (founder of Primero Group Limited, EPC and Operations contractor to Piedmont’s North American Lithium Hydroxide Plant) and Patrick Murphy (Managing Director AMCI Group, a specialist natural resources group).

Green Technology Metals Portfolio

The company’s portfolio consists of the Seymour, Root and Wisa Projects located in Ontario, Canada. The projects are ideally placed to supply spodumene concentrate to a range of future converters, both locally and within the United States. Existing resource and exploration targets are just the beginning of the lithium deposition potential across the company’s landholding. Management believes that limited historical exploration combined with high prospectivity represents very strong discovery and exploration upside potential.

Green technology metals

Seymour

The Seymour Project is located in Northwest Ontario, Canada. It is situated approximately 60 kilometers from the town of Armstrong and approximately 230 kilometers from the major town and port of Thunder Bay.

In the 1950s, regional exploration began on the property conducted by government geologists, which eventually delineated an Archean Greenstone Belt.

Seymour now holds a JORC Mineral Resource estimate of 4.8 Mt at 1.25% Li2O (2.1 Mt Indicated and 2.7 Mt Inferred). The resource is open both along strike and down dip.

The project also possesses a defined Exploration Target of 22 to 26 Mt at 0.8% to 1.5% Li2O, with 7 kilometers of strike identified. There are also numerous discrete pegmatite occurrences exposed at surface with rock chip samples returned lithium grades up to 4.54 Li2O.

Seymour

Through the second half of 2021 Green Technology Metals completed a significant initial work program including review of historical exploration, drilling and mining information to build a geological database and model of Seymour. In addition, new LIDAR, aerial photography, composite 3D mapping and geophysical surveying of the property was completed.

An 11-hole 3,500m drilling program at Seymour is now underway and due for completion in March 2022. Assay results from the first completed step-out drill hole have returned a thick and continuous intercept of 40m @ 1.54% Li2O (from 244m downhole), confirming the Company’s geological modelling and drill targeting. This result represents an excellent start to the program and delivers immediate potential for growth in the existing Seymour Mineral Resource estimate.

Green Technology Metals plans to provide an updated Mineral Resource estimate during Q2 2022, post completion of the current drilling program.
