Lithium is a critical commodity

Lithium is an important element with many end uses, but it is most commonly known for its powerful electrochemical properties that are harnessed in the form of efficient, light-weight, lithium-ion batteries. This critical commodity keeps our world charged and connected, and has a significant role to play in the continued development and expansion of renewable, clean energy to power our world. As the demand for lithium increases, new production will need to come online to satisfy global demand.

To this end, LSC was established to acquire, explore and develop lithium projects in Northern Argentina and aims to sustainably fast-track several of its lithium projects into production, in conjunction with a strategic partner’s planned production facility, to supply high-quality lithium products to global markets.*

Industry-leading lithium deposits

  • Large land package of high-quality prospective lithium salars located in the provinces of Salta and Jujuy, Argentina, in the heart of the “Lithium Triangle.”
  • LSC's land package currently includes approximately 300,000 hectares covering 15 different salars in Northern Argentina.
  • LSC is pursuing an aggressive growth strategy with plans to add further high-quality lithium deposits through acquisitions.
  • Exploration programs underway to develop a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) and define mineral resource estimates for our six major development stage lithium projects: Pozuelos, Pastos Grandes, Salinas Grandes (Salta), Salinas Grandes (Jujuy), Rio Grande and Jama.
  • Preliminary evaluations based on historical third party sampling and the size and depth of the salar de Jama and salar Rio Grande have the potential to produce up to 30,000 tonnes per annum of Lithium Carbonate Equivalent (LCE).*

Strategic Relationship with Enirgi Group Corporation

  • Strategic relationship with Enirgi Group Corporation (Enirgi Group) – the owner of the Rincón Lithium Project (through ADY Resources Limited) at the Salar del Rincón, Salta, Argentina and developer of the Direct Xtraction Process Technology (DXP Technology) for processing raw brine directly into lithium compounds without solar evaporation.
  • Enirgi Group to provide management and mining services to LSC, including technical, operational, geological, finance and administrative support, in Canada and Argentina.
  • LSC to advance the commercialization of it's salars in conjunction with Enirgi Group’s planned future Regional Processing Facility (RPF) at the Salar del Rincón in Salta, Argentina.*

Fast-track to production

  • Strategic relationship with Enirgi Group positions LSC to potentially fast-track into production and to go from exploration stage to production with lower capital requirements.
  • Under Strategic Relationship Agreement, Enirgi Group to work exclusively with LSC in Argentina to identify the most economic solution to purify and process brines from LSC’s salars, utilizing Enirgi Group’s DXP Technology, and convey such product to a future Enirgi Group RPF for processing into lithium compounds.
  • Under a binding MOU, LSC has rights to supply brine to a planned RPF at Enirgi Group’s Salar del Rincón project to meet at least 25% of expected future production at RPF.

Growth in lithium market

  • The lithium market is in the very early stages of a period of outsized, sustainable growth. It is anticipated that demand and supply will be moving out of balance in the coming years, driven by growth in electric vehicle production.
  • Lithium demand forecast to rise from ~175,000 tonnes per year in 2015 to ~775,000 tonnes per year by 20251.
  • The market is highly constrained with few major players. Incumbent lithium producers have minimal ability to boost output. Junior companies are struggling with technical, financial and political hurdles.

Superior management and board experience

  • Management has a history of utilizing disruptive business models to position LSC for success and create shareholder value.
  • President and Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Richardson, specializes in delivering transformative solutions and technologies to industries unfamiliar with change.
  • Director Stephen Dattels was the founder of many successful resource companies that were taken from exploration to production stage.
