Ensuring all shareholders receive the same opportunity to participate in the Company’s growth, Sayona also intends to undertake a capped SPP to raise up to A$5 million at the same offer price as the Placement.

Details concerning the SPP will be provided in a Plan Booklet to be dispatched to shareholders on 21 July 2021. Refer to the below timetable for relevant dates concerning the SPP.

“This new funding will allow us to finalise our acquisition of North American Lithium, a key part of our Quebec growth strategy, supporting the development of a world-scale Abitibi lithium hub that is purposebuilt to supply the North American EV revolution.”

Canaccord Genuity (Australia) Limited acted as Lead Manager and Sole Bookrunner to the Placement.

Desjardins Capital Markets acted as a finder in connection with certain purchasers under the Placement.

Jett Capital Advisors acted as North American adviser regarding the Placement.

Australia Resource Investing 101

If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve seen some of the recent buzz around Australia as a destination for resource investment and potential profit.

Australia ranks as the 13th largest economy in the world, due in no small part to its mineral largess. Between 2010 and 2020, mining contributed an impressive 10.4 percent to Australia’s economy, translating to a gross domestic product of AU$202 billion.

The country is a global mining hotspot, and its abundant natural resources and government incentives have attracted some of the mining industry’s biggest names: BHP (ASX:BHP,LSE:BHP,NYSE:BHP), Rio Tinto (ASX:RIO,LSE:RIO,NYSE:RIO) and Newcrest Mining (ASX:NCM,OTC Pink:NCMGF).

Elizabeth Geophysical Survey Highlights Scale Potential

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The first ever high resolution airborne geophysics survey on Elizabeth has identified the potential for a much larger scale gold system that significantly increases the footprint and depth extensions of potential gold mineralisation
  • The Blue Creek Porphyry intrusion, which hosts the high-grade gold mineralisation at Elizabeth likely covers an area >4x its previously known extent
  • The Blue Creek Porphyry appears to extend at least 2km below surface (ie, approximately 10x deeper than currently drill-tested)
  • Two additional anomalies have been identified as potential intrusive bodies similar to the Blue Creek Porphyry. These two anomalies show strong continuity along strike and are also extensive at depth

Tempus Resources Ltd (” Tempus ” or the ” Company “) (ASX:TMR)(TSX.V:TMRR)(OTCQB:TMRFF) is pleased to announce the results of the first ever high resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric geophysical surveys completed over the entire Elizabeth Gold Project in Southern BC, Canada

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.
