Jourdan Resources

Overview

For electric vehicle battery and power production, market researchers predict global lithium demand to more than double, from 47,300 tonnes in 2020 to 117,400 tonnes in 2024. As the West searches for more mineralization to supply the growing demand, companies mining for minerals like lithium and copper can expect to play an integral part in minimizing environmental impact, transportation costs and carving a place in the future of green energy.

Echoing this growing demand, Canada revealed its critical minerals list in March 2021, which included lithium among the 31 minerals deemed vital to the Canadian economy. The critical status of lithium coupled with growing demand strategically positions Jourdan Resources (TSXV:JOR) as a company moving towards focus areas in future Canadian mining policy and investments.

Lake Resources NL Chairmans Address - Annual General Meeting

Sydney, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Stuart Crow, I am a fellow shareholder and Non-Executive Chairman of Lake Resources NL (ASX:LKE) (FRA:LK1) (OTCMKTS:LLKKF). I'm excited to report to you on the recent activity of your company, it's been a great year for Lake Resources!

The year has been one of significant achievement and growth for Lake as the transition to electrification of transport gathers pace globally, but not without the challenges arising from continued disruption due to the impacts of the global pandemic. Your company has performed well.

As we start 2022 the final numbers on EV sales are still being gathered but it has been reported sales of EV's globally has surpassed estimates and looks to be in the order of 6.5million vehicles, more than double 2020 numbers, with many new models due for release this in the next 12 months. Volume growth and demand looks to be rising although challenged by battery raw material shortages. Deficits are forecast to last well into the next decade as demand growth goes exponential and the supply response is muted and linear at best, providing an exceptional opportunity for your company as we look to advance our Kachi project toward production in 2024 and bring our three other lithium brine projects rapidly into development.

Activity in 2021 has set a very strong foundation for us in 2022, a year that will surpass any in the company's history in terms of growth and achievement to date.

In this year we intend to deliver the following outcomes for shareholders:

1) On-site demonstration plant, production of samples for potential off-takers (March)
2) Off-take (ongoing)
3) DFS, ESIA and permitting (Mid 2022)
4) Completion of project financing (Mid 2022)
5) Construction activities (H2/22)
6) DFS expanded to 50,000tpa (complete)
7) Production of High Purity Lithium Carbonate at Kachi (H2/24)
8) Expanded exploration activity & test work across three other projects (2022)

We finished 2021 in a very strong financial position having secured expressions of interest from UKEF and EDC for the project debt whilst having significant cash reserves at bank, deep in the money options to be exercised in June 2022 and a commitment from our technology partner to fund their share of project finance as we commence construction at Kachi.

We continue to advance offtake discussions with a growing number of potential partners and customers. The rising prices of lithium across global markets is delivering an exceptional opportunity for your company. Lake is now one of only a few remaining companies with near term production ambitions that remain independent, and we intend to remain so as supply chain issues come to the fore. With increased efforts underway to build out new home-grown supply chains across Europe and North America we see a significant opportunity to be a part of that growth. Lake's high purity product is highly sought after as audited sustainable supply chains become required to access significant government assistance in Europe and no doubt other parts of the world in time.

The ever-expanding gap between demand and supply has motivated your board to expand our DFS to 50,000tpa in recent times as part of an aspirational corporate target to deliver 100,000tpa or more of high purity sustainably produced lithium product to market by 2030. Your board is increasingly confident in delivering this target as Lake has the benefit of using Direct Lithium Extraction to extract the lithium from the brines that delivers much higher recoveries than traditional methods and it's also an extremely scalable process delivering a sustainable high purity product that is keenly sought by the market.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank shareholders for their continued support of their company with our fundraising efforts, the high participation of shareholders in the bonus options programs has set the company up for a very exciting future and its pleasing to see shareholders prosper as the company continues to grow. This year we have also welcomed a growing number of large institutional investors onto our register for the first time as well as a number of ESG funds and impact investors from international markets, we are pleased to have their continued support and interest in our projects.

Our company could not have achieved the growth and success it has over the last 18 months without a great team on the ground both in Argentina and here in Australia and my thanks to all employees, partners, consultants and bankers globally and of course my fellow board members for their commitment through very trying and disruptive times, I am truly grateful for your continued support and for the great work you do, thank you.

The year ahead, whilst challenging, I suspect will be the company's best year yet as we move into construction phase of the Kachi project and continued development of other projects.

I look forward with great anticipation, excitement, and pride as a founding shareholder as your company strives to become one of the world's leading suppliers of high purity lithium products.

Thank you.

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

  • Portfolio of three highly prospective lithium projects located in Canada including an existing JORC Mineral Resource estimate at the Seymour Project of 4.8 Mt at 1.25% Li2O (2.1 Mt Indicated and 2.7 Mt Inferred).
  • 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.

Seymour Project

Root

The Root Project is located in Northwest Ontario, Canada. It is situated near the town of Slate Falls and approximately 300 kilometers from Thunder Bay.

Green Technology Metals has the rights to patented claims and a mining lease over the McCombe area, which hosts a dense pegmatite swarm. The pegmatite swarm was identified with implicit modelling and features significant grades and widths of up to 20 meters thick

The Root Project has a defined 4.8 kilometer Exploration Target of 20 to 24 Mt at 0.8% to 1.5% Li2O. Historical drilling confirmed depths greater than 100 meters. It also hosts four prospects with outcropping pegmatites offering walk-up drill targets.

Root Project

Wisa

The Wisa Project is located in Northwest Ontario, Canada. It is situated 8 kilometers from the US border and approximately 100 kilometers from the town of Fort Francis in the US. The project spans 18.9 square kilometers and is accessible by an established all seasons road that is 40 kilometers from the Trans-Canada Highway.
