Magnis Energy Technologies Limited (“Magnis", the “Company") (ASX:MNS) is pleased to provide an update on progress to the Imperium3 Townsville (“iM3TSV") 18 GWh lithium-ion battery cell manufacturing plant, planned for Townsville, Queensland.

Townsville City Council (“Council") has now formally adopted an amendment to its planning scheme (“Scheme") to create a new, jobs-generating industrial precinct on the former Lansdown Station site at Calcium near Townsville.

The Scheme will now allow the iM3TSV consortium to lodge its Development Application with Council for Stage 1 of the proposed lithium-ion battery manufacturing plant in the near future. GHD, one of the contributors to the Study, are currently completing detailed reports to be included in the Development Application, which Magnis expects to be completed in the coming months.

On 1 October 2019, it was announced that iM3TSV, in which Magnis holds a one third share, submitted a feasibility study (the “Study") to the Queensland Government, for a planned 18 GWh lithium-ion battery cell manufacturing facility in Townsville. The Study incorporated a staged approach, whereby the facility would be built in three tranches of 6 GWh.

Townsville Mayor, Jenny Hill, commented: “Council is committed to establishing an environmentally sustainable, advanced manufacturing, processing and technology estate on the site that will drive economic growth and job creation for North Queensland."

“This growth and job creation are important for our economic recovery from the COVID-19 global pandemic as well as our long-term future."

“Council welcomes the State Government's approval of our proposed amendment and will continue to engage with project partners to progress potential projects for the Lansdown industrial precinct."

Magnis Chairman Frank Poullas commented: “We are encouraged by the progress made in Townsville as we field some serious interest from investors seeking to be involved with the project. It's great to have the support from all forms of government who see the opportunity to bring large-scale high-tech manufacturing into Townsville."

In addition to the compilation of a DA submission with GHD, iM3TSV has also been progressing through the next phases of work that include development of validation testing programs and project funding. This work is being performed with various stakeholders that include financing advisor NAB, manufacturing equipment vendors and various instruments and institutions of government.

This announcement has been authorised for release by the Board of Magnis Energy Technologies Ltd.

Lake Resources NL Quarterly Activities Report

Sydney, Australia (ABN Newswire) – Lake Resources NL (ASX:LKE) (FRA:LK1) (OTCMKTS:LLKKF) is a lithium developer utilising clean, direct extraction technology for the development of high purity lithium products with significant ESG benefits from its flagship Kachi Project (4.4mt LCE resource), and three other lithium brine projects in Argentina. No mining is involved in the brine processing.

Lake owns over 220,000 hectares (0.5 million acres) of leases in a prime location within the Lithium Triangle, alongside all 5 major lithium producers.

A key difference in Lake’s development plan to lithium production is to use an efficient direct lithium extraction method (DLE) from our technology partner, Lilac Solutions Inc. This enables Lake Resources to be a cost competitive supplier of high-purity lithium carbonate with a low carbon (CO2) footprint, low water use and low land use – strong Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) benefits.

In exceptional market conditions, Rio Tinto achieves record financial results and declares total interim dividend of 561 US cents per share, 75% of underlying earnings

Rio Tinto Chief Executive Jakob Stausholm said “Government stimulus in response to ongoing COVID-19 pressures has driven strong demand for our products at a time of constrained supply resulting in a significant spike in most prices. We focused on safely running our world-class assets and supplying products to our customers. This enabled us, despite operational challenges, to deliver record financial results with free cash flow of $10.2 billion and underlying earnings of $12.2 billion, after taxes and government royalties of $7.3 billion. We are further strengthening the portfolio with our commitment to fund the high-quality Jadar lithium project, which signals our large-scale entry into the fast-growing battery materials market. We will pay an interim dividend of 561 US cents per share, representing 75% of underlying earnings.

“We are making progress on our four priorities, identifying opportunities for operational improvement, advancing our ESG agenda, taking important investment decisions and stepping up our external engagement. We are making real and lasting changes to the way we engage, interact and operate and are committed to ensuring that we have strong and positive relationships wherever we do business. We have identified what we need to do to make Rio Tinto a better company for the long term, with the right teams in place to unleash our full potential.”
