Lithium Ionic Corp.

Lithium Ionic is a near-term producer of high-quality, low-cost lithium concentrate in Brazil's "Lithium Valley", a region of global significance for hard-rock lithium production. Our claims span 14,182-hectares in the northeastern part of Minas Gerais state, a mining-friendly jurisdiction where +300 mines operate. In May 2024, a Feasibility Study on the Bandeira lithium deposit demonstrated a 14-year, low-cost mining operation producing 178,000tpa of high-quality spodumene concentrate (5.5% Li2O), resulting in a post-tax NPV8 of US$1.3B and an IRR of 40%. Lithium Ionic is focused on generating significant value for its stakeholders by accelerating its highly scalable Bandeira towards production and supporting the global EV and battery supply chains.

Lithium Co. Releases Robust Feasibility Study

Research Report
Lithium Ionic Corp. (LTH:TSX; LYHCF:OTCQX) is the cheapest of all the players in the region, according to a Clarus Securities research note.

Expert Comments:

Frederic Tremblay, Desjardins

"With Lithium Ionic Corp.'s balance sheet currently tight (latest available cash-on-hand position of about CA$10M), we see potential for the release of the feasibility study to open up/accelerate opportunities to enhance the company's financial position. . .we view the valuation of Lithium Ionic as compelling, especially considering its quick path to production, low costs, proximity to producers and infrastructure, and further resource growth potential."

Cole McGill, Stifel

"The definitive feasibility study of Lithium Ionic Corp.'s Bandeira project prioritizes speed over scale, in line with our thesis, with the construction permit expected in Q3/24. We see multiple levers to pull to optimize project value, not least the roughly 24 Mt in resources at Bandeira that could translate into an additional nine years of mine life."

Katie Lachapelle, Canaccord Genuity

"The results of the feasibility study on Lithium Ionic Corp.'s flagship Bandeira project were largely in line with our forecasts. . .we continue to view the Bandeira project as highly attractive."

Greg Jones, BMO Capital Markets

"Lithium Ionic Corp. announced results of its Bandeira feasibility study. . .the results continue to show Bandeira is an attractive, low-capital project with potential for a short timeline to production and opportunities for further upside/optimization."

Varun Arora, Clarus Securities

"The global resource at Lithium Ionic Corp.'s Bandeira now stands at 41.9 Mt at 1.35% Li2O. This is an impressive 42% increase in about 6.5 months from the last resource update in October which itself was an 84% increase in just 3.5 months from the maiden resource."

Varun Arora, Clarus Securities

"The maiden global resource at Lithium Ionic Corp.'s Salinas came in at an impressive 14.76 Mt at about 1.02% Li2O. This was at the high end of expectation of 10−15 Mt; about 40% of the resource is in the Measured & Indicated category with 5.86 Mt at 1.09% Li2O and the remaining 8.9 Mt in Inferred at 0.97% Li2O."
