Xantippe Managing Director, Richard Henning, commented:

Having recently finalised our investment of Luz Maria2 which gives XTC a total of 12,400 Ha, we have now secured an exclusive option over a further 9,500Ha. This Triangle is one of the most exciting and valuable regions in the world providing high purity lithium to drive the world’s electric vehicle future.

At Xantippe, we are fortunate to be working with two of the most prominent and successful families in Argentina and we look forward to a strong partnership as we strive to reach our mutual goal of clean and environmentally responsible Lithium production.

We are delighted to have acquired such high-quality projects, located next to Tier One clean lithium developers. We will commence exploration activities as soon as possible. We look forward to keeping shareholders updated on our progress. The acquisition of the additional land option adds to our strategy of extending our footprint in Catamarca with plans to develop a Lithium product sourced from brines that will offer a clean product using direct lithium extraction (DLE) which requires a smaller environmental footprint and uses less water.”

This paleo salar continues under a more recent alluvial fan cover to the northeast and west of Lake Resources (LKE) areas. LKE areas are in the salt lake and are prone to flooding whereas the target areas are covered by alluvial fans and easy to access
