ION Energy to Commence Exploration on the Baavhai Uul Lithium Brine Project

ION Energy Ltd (TSXV: ION) (FSE: 5YB) ("ION" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it is commencing its geophysics (CSAMT and reflection seismic) study on the Baavhai Uul Lithium Brine project in Sukhbaatar Province, Mongolia. The geophysics program is specifically designed to progressively identify and map brine aquifers as potential targets for a series of drill tests. See Figure 1 for the proposed work plan area and coverage.

All permits are in-place to proceed with the geophysics program, which will initially deploy over targets L-11 (12 line-km) and L-8 (8 line-km), with soundings at 50 m spacing. The program will commence with a CSAMT survey utilizing Zonge GGT10 transmitter and GDP32 receiver and Oasis software to identify brine aquifers. This will be followed by a program of reflection seismic work on the same lines to identify structure. The seismic program will utilize DAQLink111 equipment with 48 channel capability, with geophones spaced at 5 m intervals. The initial program is expected to focus on the previously sampled areas and will take approximately six weeks to complete for the CSAMT program. The seismic program will follow as weather condition permits. It is anticipated the seismic work will take approximately four weeks to complete the field work. The Company has engaged a highly experienced technical advisor and field crew to carry out the program.

Previous programs conducted at Baavhai Uul Lithium Brine Project included surface brine sampling (2016). The results were extremely encouraging, with Target L8 returning values from 212 mg/L lithium to 811 mg/L lithium, while Target L-11 returned sample values from 311 mg/L lithium to 434 mg/L lithium from shallow samples.

Ali Haji, Company CEO notes that, "The commencement of exploration programs at ION Energy's Baavhai Uul Lithium Brine Project is a pivotal moment in the exploration and future development of Mongolia's strategically located lithium Brine deposits. This is the first time advanced modern exploration techniques will be utilised for the discovery of lithium brines in southern Mongolia."

The Company also announces that it has granted to the directors of the Company an aggregate of 3,000,000 incentive stock options (the "Stock Options") to purchase common shares under the Company's incentive stock option plan (the "Plan"). Each Stock Option is exercisable into a common share of the Company at a price of $0.32 for a period of five years from the date of grant. The Stock Options will vest immediately and be subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

ION Energy’s Mongolian Asset Poised to Serve China’s Lithium Demand, CEO Says

ION Energy (TSXV:ION,OTCQB:IONGF) CEO Ali Haji believes its lithium project in Mongolia ideally places it to serve China’s market, the largest consumer of lithium in the world.

“Lithium is a vastly important mineral in the clean green energy revolution,” Haji said, noting the progress the company has made in exploring its assets in Mongolia.

“We've been able to advance one of our assets — Urgakh Naran — essentially from greenfield to an inferred resource in the span of a year. And the grades that we're seeing today are rather promising, in fact … (it) showed that our average grade is almost three times as high as the only operating brine asset in North America.”

Top 5 Canadian Lithium Stocks of 2023

Last year was huge for lithium, as the battery metal set all-time highs for the second year in a row. While that trend has cooled so far in 2023, particularly in China, where lithium carbonate prices have been falling, experts remain bullish on lithium going forward.

“While this softening is happening in China, as always it's really important to note that there is not one price for lithium. The spot market impact elsewhere outside of China has been much softer so far,” Daisy Jennings-Gray, the firm's senior price analyst, said in a webinar.

Other experts are positive about softening prices, as that can aid in affordability for the electric vehicle roll out driving the success of lithium and other battery metals. "'All-time price highs’ are necessary shocks to the system, but not good for the long-term EV buildout,” Simon Moores of Benchmark Mineral Intelligence said.
