- Assets located in Mining-Friendly Jurisdiction
~14,182 ha land package in Minas Gerais, Brazil; the country's most favourable mining jurisdiction, where +300 mines currently operate. The state of Minas Gerais is known for its highly efficient and expeditious permitting process.
- Established Lithium-Producing District
Flagship Bandeira Project located within 500m of CBL’s Cachoeira lithium mine and <4km from Sigma Lithium’s Grota do Cirilo lithium mine. Regional proof-of-concept greatly reduce CAPEX and OPEX risk.
- Total Global Mineral Resource Estimate (“MRE”) Demonstrates Scale, High-grade and Significant Growth Potential
- Bandeira + Outro Lado Mineral Resource Estimates:
Measured & Indicated: 16.69Mt at 1.41% Li2O (~582kt LCE)
Inferred: 16.21Mt at 1.34% Li2O (~538kt LCE)
- From June to October 2023, Bandeira showcased a near-doubling of the MRE, which formed the basis of a Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”).
- Bandeira + Outro Lado Mineral Resource Estimates:
- Recent PEA Highlights Robust Economics and Solid Foundation for Growth
A PEA for the Bandeira MRE (M&I: 13.72Mt grading 1.40% Li2O + Inferred: 15.79Mt grading 1.34% Li2O) supported a long-life (20-year) and low-cost spodumene concentrate mining project with a post-tax Net Present Value (“NPV”) of US$1.6 billion (~C$2.2 billion) and an Internal Rate of Return (“IRR”) of 121% (see press release dated October 19, 2023).
- Proven Brazilian Team
Over 80 years of cumulative experience in the exploration, development and operation of mining projects in Brazil; complemented by a strong technical and capital markets team based in Toronto, Canada.
- Growing Lithium Demand
The transition to green energy has made lithium one of the most sought-after metals. According to Benchmark Minerals Intelligence, demand for lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) is set to increase to 2.4Mt in 2030, compared to around 600,000t in 2022, which is expected to lead to a growing supply-demand gap.
- Near-term Catalysts & High Re-rate Potential
- 50,000m mineral resource expansion and definition drill program underway for H2 2023
- Definitive Feasibility Study for Bandeira, including an updated MRE, expected in early 2024
- Environmental Impact Assessment underway and expected for completion in Q4 2023
- Environmental and Installation License (“LAC”, or Licença Ambiental Concomitante) expected to be submitted by year-end; approval expected in mid-2024.
