TORONTO, Sept. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lithium Ionic Corp. (TSXV: LTH; OTCQB: LTHCF) (“Lithium Ionic” or the “Company”) reports additional positive drilling results from the Galvani claims, which the Company recently acquired (see Sept. 12, 2022, press release) following a due diligence review. The Galvani claims, as well as its neighbouring 100%-owned Itinga Lithium Project (Areas 1-5) are located in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, in the same district as the lithium producing CBL mine and Sigma Lithium’s Barreiro deposit (20.4Mt grading 1.4% Li2O) (see Figure 1, location map).

New Galvani Drill Intercept Highlights (See Figure 2 and Table 1)

  • 1.71% Li2O over 21.91m (Hole ARDD-22-025)

  • 1.53% Li2O over 46.21m, incl. 2.22% Li2O over 12.49m
    and 1.14% Li2O over 12.88m, incl. 1.66% Li2O over 5.43m (Hole ARDD-22-021)

  • 1.30% Li2O over 19.19m, incl. 1.83% Li2O over 4.44m (Hole ARDD-22-022)

  • Previously Reported Drill Intercept Highlights from Galvani Claims

  • 1.94% Li2O over 19.78m, incl. 2.33% Li2O over 7.35m

  • 1.68% Li2O over 20.7m, incl. 2.22% Li2O over 8.63m

  • 1.57% Li2O over 24.93m, incl. 2.10% Li2O over 7.45m

  • 1.30% Li2O over 38.5m

  • 1.77% Li2O over 10.85m

  • 1.27% Li2O over 10.77m, incl. 1.70% Li2O over 3.53m

  • 1.17% Li2O over 42.05m, incl. 1.95% Li2O over 11.72m

  • Blake Hylands, Chief Executive Officer of Lithium Ionic, commented, “We have now shown the continuation of high-grade mineralization at surface for over eight hundred metres at Outro Lado (the Galvani claim showing). While we are extremely excited about the scale so far, we believe this is only the beginning in this area. As the team better understands the structure and geometry of this zone, our expectation is to both outline a significant resource and continue to make new discoveries. We are confident the work at the Galvani claims, as well as our other properties, will quickly fit Lithium Ionic into the global lithium supply chain that is desperately searching for the high grade, battery-quality material that is unique to this prolific mining district.”

    Subsequent to the completed acquisition of the Galvani claims announced on September 12, 2022, the Company has expanded upon the drill program it initiated in June 2022 with five drills currently operating on its properties. As part of its due diligence review, Lithium Ionic successfully confirmed historic drilling results and also identified new zones of mineralization beyond the ~0.7km strike pegmatite with strong lithium values over significant widths.

    The Galvani property is located less than 4 kilometres from Sigma Lithium’s Xuxa deposit (over 17Mt grading 1.55% Li2O M+I). The high grade and large widths of the intercepts to date demonstrate excellent potential to outline a significant resource very quickly. Mineralization is hosted in spodumene bearing pegmatites sourced from the same granitic intrusive, which characterizes Lithium Ionic’s Project Area 1, CBL’s lithium mining operation, and Sigma Lithium’s resources (Figure 1).

    Idaho Champion Goes Full Battery by Acquiring Prospective Lithium Projects in James Bay Region; Quebec Precious Metals to Become Significant Shareholder

    Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 19, 2022) - Idaho Champion (CSE: ITKO) (OTCQB: GLDRF) (FSE: 1QB1) ("Idaho Champion" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding memorandum of understanding (the "Agreement") with Quebec Precious Metals Corporation ("QPM") to acquire a 100% interest in two prospective lithium pegmatite projects (the "Projects") in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay territory of Quebec.

    The Projects (covering approximately 162 km2) include historic findings of pegmatite (see Figure 1) and sit to the north of the Patriot Battery Metals' ("Patriot") Corvette project ( recently intersected intervals included 1.25% Li2O and 118 ppm Ta2O5 over 96m (CV22-035); see Patriot's news release dated July 28, 2022) and also located in close proximity to infrastructure in a developing potential lithium pegmatite district that has shown high prospectivity for lithium mineral resources.* The Projects are at an early stage of exploration, and the Company cautions that the qualified persons who have reviewed and approved this news release have not verified scientific or technical information produced by third parties, and proximity to projects containing lithium resources offers no assurance that the rock types or lithium resources reported by Patriot and others extend onto the Projects and such proximity is not necessarily indicative of the mineralization reported by third parties with projects in the district.

    Together with its existing Cobalt assets located in Idaho, this pending acquisition pivots Idaho Champion's strategy to focus on making a meaningful impact in the North American battery metals sector.

    "Battery makers worldwide face significant challenges in order to meet the extraordinary demand and technological advances ahead of the 2035 EV mandates. Combined with the geopolitical climate, we are presented with an excellent opportunity to aggressively uncover materials important to meet these demands," stated Jonathan Buick, President and CEO. "The Blanche and Charles projects place the Company right in the mix within a fast-growing lithium pegmatite district. The projects were originally explored for precious and base metals, but more recently, evidence of pegmatites has led to a re-assessment of the lithium discovery potential that warrants more work. Additionally, we would like to welcome QPM as cornerstone shareholders with approximately 7.4% of our outstanding shares post-transaction. We look forward to exploring these assets together."

    *James Bay Lithium - (Indicated Mineral Resource: 40.33 million tonnes grading 1.4% Li2O), owned by Allkem Limited (NI 43-101 Technical Report, Feasibility Study, James Bay Lithium Project Québec, Canada, by G Mining Services, January 11, 2022); Rose - (Probable reserves: 26.3 million tonnes grading 0.87% Li2O and 138 ppm Ta2O5), owned by Critical Elements Lithium Corporation (Rose Lithium-Tantalum Project Feasibility Study NI 43-101 Technical Report, by Simon Boudreau, P.Eng., May 27, 2022); Whabouchi - (Measured and Indicated "in Pit" Mineral Resource: 37.356 million tonnes grading 1.48% Li2O), owned by Livent Corporation and Investissment Québec. (NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Whabouchi Lithium Mine and Shawnigan Electrochemical Plant, by Met-Chem et al, November 7, 2018).

    QPM's Chief Executive Officer, Normand Champigny commented: "The Projects are clearly underexplored for lithium. In light of the recent discoveries in the area, we welcome the opportunity to become a significant shareholder of Idaho Champion while working with them to become successful explorers in the James Bay region. This transaction is consistent with our strategy to monetize non-core assets."

    Figure 1 Exploration Results Source: Patriot Battery Metals Drilling:


    Blanche is comprised of 256 claims totaling approximately 130 km2. The project lies within a volcano-sedimentary belt striking ENE. The Blanche project is mainly composed of a broad east-northeast trending mafic band, interpreted as an metamorphosed basalt hosted within tonalitic rocks and interbedded with narrow sections of magnesian basalt and komatiites, iron formations (silicate and/or oxidized facies) and metasedimentary rocks.

    Three units of felsic intrusive rocks were observed at Blanche: hornblende tonalite, granite and pegmatite dykes. Tonalite consists of feldspar, quartz and biotite intrusive rocks. In the northwestern part of the project, the rocks are relatively homogenous and medium grained, containing 20 to 30% hornblende, with locally weak foliation. The granite is comprised of medium to coarse grained feldspar, plagioclase, quartz and biotite. It is massive, homogeneous, and mostly non-magnetic. A few pegmatite dykes have also been identified on the project. So far, they are typically less than two-meters wide and cut the felsic units, but they are also found parallel to the schistosity in the mafic rocks. Pegmatites have almost the same composition as the granites but show a texture ranging from coarse to pegmatitic with the presence of 5 to 7% muscovite.

    The project is bordered to the south and north by felsic intrusive rocks, which have been described as hornblende-biotite tonalite, and tonalitic gneiss, tonalite, granodiorite and quartz monzogranite in the north. The metamorphic grade ranges from upper greenschist facies to middle amphibolite facies.


    The Charles project is comprised of 61 claims covering approximately 31 km2. Less is known about this project, but the area exhibits variable topography, ranging from slightly to very hilly. Several hills associated with felsic intrusives and iron formations are present and have been shaped by glaciers that had an ENE-WSW direction. A number of outcrops are exposed. Within the northern and central parts of this project, there is a thick glacial sediments containing boulders of granite and pegmatite.

    Terms of the Agreement

    As per the terms of the binding Agreement, Idaho Champion is purchasing 100% of the Projects from QPM in return for $100,000 in cash and 12,000,000 common shares of the Company, of which 50% will be subject to escrow for 18 months. QPM will also retain a 2% net smelter return royalty ("NSR") on claims retained by Idaho Champion upon completion of the acquisition. The Company has the option to repurchase 1% of the NSR from QPM for $1 million. Closing of the acquisition is subject to usual conditions for this type of transaction including a 45-day due diligence period, and regulatory and stock exchange approval.

    Furthermore, the Company announces a private placement with the Agreement. Idaho Champion will issue up to 20,000,000 shares at a price of $0.05 per share for gross proceeds of $1,000,000. Proceeds of the private placement will be used for the acquisition payment and related transaction costs, preliminary field work on the Projects and for general working capital purposes.

    Lithium One Acquires Strategic Property Adjoining Patriot's Corvette

    Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 23, 2022) - Lithium One Metals Inc. (TSXV: LONE) (FSE: H490) (the "Company" or "LONE" ) reports that it has entered into an arms-length option agreement (the "Agreement") with Glenn Griesbach (the "Optionor") to acquire a 100% interest in and to the Lac Astrid Lithium Project in northwestern Quebec, Canada (the "Lac Astrid Property"). The Lac Astrid Lithium Project is composed of 70 mineral claims covering approximately 3,600 hectares (36 km2) located in a very active hard rock lithium pegmatite area in the prolific James Bay mining area of Quebec, 900 kilometers north-northeast of Montreal and 250 km east of the small community of Radisson, in the James Bay region of northern Quebec. The Lac Astrid Property is located approximately 14 kilometres south of the Trans-Taiga all-weather gravel highway and 18 kilometres south of the Cargair floatplane base.

    The Lac Astrid Lithium property lies 11 km east of Patriot's Corvette Lithium discovery, within the 50km "CV Lithium Trend" which Patriot Metals describes as an emerging spodumene pegmatite district discovered by their exploration team in 2017.

    There is little history of exploration on the Lac Astrid property. The mineralization of economic interest that is sought in the region and at Lac Astrid is found in Lithium-bearing spodumene- pegmatite dyke complexes.

    LONE's initial focus of exploration will be the assessment of outcropping white pegmatite with muscovite and tourmaline (MERN database, outcrop 5526) first described by MERN geologists in 2011.

    Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company may acquire a 100% interest in and to the Lac Astrid Project by (i) making aggregate cash payments of $600,000; ($100,000 on execution of the agreement, $200,000 on the first anniversary of the agreement, and. $300,000 on the second anniversary of the agreement) (ii) issuing an aggregate of 1,200,000 units and 3,000,000 common shares of the Company (1,200,000 units (each unit is comprised of one common share and one warrant exercisable at $0.40 for 24 months) on execution of the agreement, 1,000,000 shares on the first anniversary of the agreement, and 2,0000,000 shares on the second anniversary of the agreement. The share issuances and cash payments increase over the term of the Agreement. Upon exercise of the Option by the Company, the Optionor will retain a 3.0% net smelter returns royalty on the Lac Astrid Project, 2.0% of which may be purchased by the Company for $2,000,000.

    In addition, the Company reports that Mr. Bilal Bhamji, CPA, CMA has been appointed as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Bhamji, a graduate and class valedictorian of Vancouver Community College, BC has over 20 years of experience in accounting and finance.

    The Company is also pleased to announce that it will be conducting a non-brokered private placement financing under which it will raise gross proceeds of up to $1.25 million by the issue of units at $0.25 per unit. Each unit consists of one common share and one half of a warrant. Each whole warrant shall be transferrable and entitle the holder to subscribe for an additional common share at $0.40 for a period of 2 years. The Company reserves the right to accelerate the expiry date of the warrants, in the event that the shares trade at $0.50 or above for a period of 10 consecutive trading day.

    The Company intends to use the proceeds from the financing for mineral exploration and for general working capital.

    The shares and units to be issued under the financing will be offered by way of private placement in each of the provinces of Canada and such other jurisdictions as may be determined by the Company pursuant to applicable exemptions from the prospectus requirements under applicable securities laws. The securities issued under the financing will have a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.

    Scotch Creek Announces Extension to Highlands West Lithium Property Claims and Drill Permit

    Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 21, 2022) - Scotch Creek Ventures Inc (CSE: SCV) (FSE: 7S2) (OTC PINK: SCVFF). (the "Company") ("Scotch Creek" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the required drill permits have been granted to the Company for their Highlands West property within the Clayton Valley. Additionally, Scotch Creek has bolstered their Highlands West project claims, which now covers approximately 6,360-acres along the Central and Southwest margins of the Clayton Valley.

    Scotch Creek's 400-acre claim extension encompasses newly prospective, basin margin rock units, as seen in high-resolution seismic data, and contains distinct, laterally extensive, well bedded units in the subsurface. These distinctive units appear correlative within several, robust, structural basins interpreted from the combination of detailed gravity and high quality seismic imaging of the property.

    Several major faults have been identified in both seismic and detailed gravity data. These faults are interpreted to be bounding faults which separate multiple significant-size basins containing the well-bedded rock sequences.

    These basins lie in close proximity to the Clayton Valley playa and existing brine production fields.

    Scotch Creek CEO, Mr. David Ryan, commented, "Receiving the drill permit for our Highlands property is an important step towards achieving our exploration plans and goals for the project. Now that we have the required permit in place to commence an exploratory lithium drill campaign, we are thrilled to announce the extension of our Highlands claims in the Clayton Valley. We believe the new ground provides the Company with important additional claims contiguous with our existing project. Our goal is to locate a substantial lithium discovery at Highlands and thus create further value for our shareholders."

    Scotch Creek would like to invite investors and stakeholders to connect with our investor relations team or visit our website to sign-up to receive regular updates and news alerts.

    Piedmont Lithium still open to more spodumene opportunities

    28th September 2022

    By: Esmarie Iannucci
    Creamer Media Senior Deputy Editor: Australasia

    PERTH ( – Lithium developer Piedmont is looking at opportunities to increase its resource and ore reserves as it works towards bringing its US assets into production.

    The dual-listed company earlier this year earmarked a site in Tennessee for the development of a new 30 000 t/y lithium hydroxide operation, which is expected to start in 2025, and will convert spodumene concentrate sourced from Piedmont’s global project into lithium hydroxide to supply the US electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing industry.

    The Tennessee lithium hydroxide plant will complement the company’s planned Carolina lithium operation, which will be a fully integrated project producing 242 000 t/y of spodumene concentrate and by- products, as well as 30 000 t/y of lithium hydroxide, with operations slated to start in 2026.

    In terms of spodumene production, Piedmont holds a 25% interest in Sayona Quebec, which has three lithium projects in the region, including the North American Lithium (NAL) operation, where production is set to start in the first quarter of 2023.

    An earlier prefeasibility study (PFS) estimated that the 1.5-million-tonne-a-year NAL operation could deliver 4.4-million tonnes of spodumene concentrate over a mine life of 27 years.

    Concentrate from the NAL operations will feed into the planned Tennessee plant.

    Additionally, Piedmont is also earning a 50% interest in the Ewoyaa lithium project, in Ghana, from ASX- and Aim-listed Atlantic Lithium.

    A recently completed PFS estimated that Ewoyaa ill require a capital investment of $125-million to deliver the 255 000 t/y lithium spodumene operation, with a mine life of 12.5 years.

    The study calculated a post-tax net present value of $1.33-billion and free cash flows of $2-billion from life-of-mine (LoM) revenues of $4.84-billion.

    Piedmont executive VP and COO Patrick Brindle told Mining Weekly Online on Wednesday that the Ewoyaa project was strategically located to allow Piedmont to ship spodumene concentrate either through the US East Coast or the Gulf of Mexico, and to use the spodumene as feedstock for the Tennessee project.

    “The conclusion of the PFS in terms of concentrate production, capital and operating costs was in line with our expectations as joint venture partner. We are very exited to be working on the next steps, which includes application for mining licence and scoping level environmental impact assessment submissions, followed by a definitive feasibility study next year, so we can put ourselves in a position to potentially make a final investment decision by the end of next year,” said Brindle.

    Piedmont’s earn-in into the Ewoyaa project includes an offtake agreement for 50% of the yearly production at market prices, on a LoM basis.

    First production from Ewoyaa is planned for the third quarter of 2024.

    Brindle told Mining Weekly Online that the US government’s push to secure critical mineral supply, and the legislation used to enact this ambition, had slotted in perfectly with the company’s own operational strategy for the next three to five years, of establishing lithium conversion capacity.

    “We see opportunities from the Inflation Reduction Act to enhance the economics of our projects, and we have seen strong interest from the federal government in both loan and grant programmes.

    "Having been at this for about five years, I would say that the last number of months have seen quite a material shift in the position and attitude of the US governments for these critical minerals.”

    Brindle noted that while Piedmont’s ambition was to be a North American manufacturer of lithium hydroxide in the medium to long term, the company continued to be open to opportunities to invest in resources to support its long-term manufacturing plans.

    Rio warns miners not moving fast enough on lithium extraction

    28th September 2022

    By: Bloomberg

    Planned lithium production will fail to meet growth in demand for lithium ion batteries that are needed to meet global climate goals, according to Rio Tinto ’s minerals chief.

    Lithium consumption needed “to surge way above anything that’s planned to be mined,” Sinead Kaufman told a conference in Perth on Wednesday. The metal is a vital ingredient in the batteries that power zero-carbon electric vehicles.

    Rio was investing more capital in developing lithium and other battery metals, and was turning to waste from defunct mines to recover the minerals, Kaufman said. The world’s second-biggest miner also wanted to grow its copper business beyond planned projects in Mongolia and the US, she added.

    Customers were demanding environmentally sound mining practices, forcing miners to decarbonize their operations, Kaufman said.

    “We’ve got to decarbonize our own business, because producing material for the green transition can’t be done the way it was done previously,” she said.

    Financial Condition / Capital Resources

    During the three months ended July 31, 2022, the Company recorded a net loss of $609,709 and, as of July 31, 2022, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $44,598,448 and working capital of $1,686,095. The Company is maintaining its Woxna Graphite Mine on a “production-ready” basis to minimize costs and is conducting ongoing research and development to produce higher value specialty products. The Company is also evaluating a potential restart of production at the Woxna Graphite Mine. The Company anticipates that it has sufficient funding to meet anticipated levels of corporate administration and overheads for the ensuing twelve months however, it will need additional capital to provide working capital and recommence operations at the Woxna Graphite Mine, establish a production facility for the Anode Project, to fund future development of the Norra Karr Property or to complete exploration activities in Romania. There is no assurance such additional capital will be available to the Company on acceptable terms or at all. In the longer term the recoverability of the carrying value of the Company’s long-lived assets is dependent upon the Company’s ability to preserve its interest in the underlying mineral property interests, the discovery of economically recoverable reserves, the achievement of profitable operations and the ability of the Company to obtain financing to support its ongoing exploration programs and mining operations. See also “COVID-19”.


    On August 30, Leading Edge Materials announced a management change with CEO Filip Kozlowski leaving his role on October 14, to be replaced by director Eric Krafft as acting CEO. A recruitment process is ongoing for a new CEO for the Company that will set the course for the next phase of growth.

    Pricing for both graphite1 and rare earth oxides2 have been reversing gains displayed earlier in the year. Downstream demand has been negatively impacted by a challenging power supply situation with temporary industrial shutdowns3 and substantial COVID lockdowns in China4. Longer term, the demand outlook for graphite from the battery industry is continuing to grow with for example the announcement of a massive 100 GWh battery plant by CATL in Hungary5.

    Europe is accelerating policy measures to increase its raw materials security by going forward with plans for a Critical Raw Materials Act6 and a European Sovereignty fund that will look to support projects of strategic interest7.

    Sweden held parliamentary elections in September with a right-wing coalition winning the majority of mandates, indicating a change in government once negotiations are done. Parties of the coalition have expressed their positive sentiment towards a strong and growing Swedish mining industry.

    Preparatory studies and work are ongoing for the upcoming permitting process for Norra Kärr. The Company is continuing to evaluate the potential restart of flake graphite production at the Woxna mine with a careful consideration on the weakening macroeconomic outlook for European industry. The longer term opportunity to produce a graphite anode material is still the main focus and the Company is awaiting results from planned testwork with its potential JV partner Sicona. Since the granting of the exploration license in Romania an exploration team has been established and initial exploration work such as mapping and sampling having started on the ground with interesting targets for further evaluation already identified. Geophysical studies are scheduled to start while preparatory work is being done do enable the opening of old mining galleries which would provide an excellent exploration opportunity over the winter season.

    Financial Information

    The annual audited consolidated financial statements for the year ending October 31, 2022, is expected to be published on or about January 25, 2023.

    Atacama Resources Acquires Mineral Rights to 317 Acre Cobalt, Silver, Gold and Diamond Property Near Cobalt, Ontario

    Plantation, Florida--(Newsfile Corp. - September 28, 2022) - Atacama Resources International, Inc. (OTC Pink: ACRL) ("Atacama") remains focused on its asset exploration and development program and is pleased to announce that the company has acquired mining rights to a 317 acre cobalt, silver, macro diamond, and gold property. Atacama has taken grab samples near the existing trenches, pits, and shallow shafts on the property and plans to do more extensive exploration in the near future. Initial assay results indicated trace amounts of gold and larger amounts of silver, diamonds and cobalt. 1.22% cobalt has been found near one of the shaft areas and the prospecting report recommends further backhoe stripping to uncover the original bedrock surface. Atacama is calling the 317 acre property of rich cobalt "Atacama Cobalt #1."

    Located in the largest cobalt region in the world, Atacama is also fortunate to be located near North America's only battery grade cobalt refinery. The proximity of this refinery in Temiskaming, Ontario to our property could help provide a significant cost savings compared to our global competitors. This refinery is set to be completed by December 2022 into 2023 indicating a growing demand for rare metals like cobalt. We have been looking at other claims in the area and look forward to further development of this property as it shows significant potential in a rapidly expanding global EV market.

    Originally, the rising demand for cobalt was due to its use in super alloys needed in nuclear reactors, jet and rocket engines, turbines, power plants and in various military and aerospace technologies. While these are still active markets for cobalt, the emergence of electric vehicles has increased the demand for cobalt significantly. As the newly mandated replacement for gas powered vehicles begins to take place in more areas globally, we feel the demand for rare metals used in manufacturing high-power rechargeable batteries will continue to grow in large demand. We feel positioning ourselves in multiple metal markets such as in Canada, the United States, and elsewhere will provide opportunities for Atacama to grow internationally.

    According to Board Chairman Glenn Grant, "The emergence of the EV industry has changed the transportation world forever and Atacama Resources is committed to providing the metals required to support this exciting and rapidly expanding industry. While acquiring the Atacama Cobalt #1 Property is an important part of our strategy, it is only a small fraction of what we plan to accomplish. In addition to this property, the company is also moving forward on the acquisition of additional strategic properties and we will announce these assets in the near future. We will also remain focused on Atacama's goals and providing transparency to shareholders where we can. Completing our audited financial statements remains top priority and we continue to make progress there as well. Thank you, shareholders for your continued patience and support as we help build Atacama into its full potential."

    Please stay tuned on social media and our website for additional information as those updates become available.
