Pioneer Dome Lithium Project
Essential Metals 100%
400km2 project tenure in the ‘lithium corridor’
Mt Marion, Bald Hill and Buldania projects are all located within 100km of Pioneer Dome
The Dome North Lithium Mineral Resource is located in the northern area
Perfect location to develop a mining operation
Flat-lying, lightly wooded land with no environmental or native title complexities
10km from a main regional highway that connects the main mining centre of Kalgoorlie (150km) and the large dry bulk & container seaport of Esperance (275km)
Gas pipeline and water pipeline located alongside the main highway
Unsealed access road connects the Project to the main highway

Dome North Mineral Resource
Table 2. Mineral resource by deposit and category. Dome North Lithium Project (0.5 % Li2O cut-off grade)
Excellent Metallurgical Characteristics
Scoping Study level metallurgical test work showed a total lithium oxide (Li2O) recovery rate of 74% was achieved using a hybrid Dense Medium Separation (DMS) + flotation flowsheet to produce a 5.6% lithia (Li2O) concentrate with 0.7% iron (Fe2O3) content
Excellent potential for improvement with further refinement of the process techniques
Mavis Lake Lithium Project
Essential Metals (51% interest) - manager of the Mavis Lake Lithium Project Joint Venture with International Lithium Corp. (TSXV.ILC) (49% interest)
The Mavis Lake Lithium Project is situated 19 kilometres east from the town of Dryden, NW Ontario, Canada, close to the east-west Trans-Continental Highway and infrastructure corridor. The Project area is 32 km².
Twenty lithium pegmatites have been identified to date in outcrop within the Mavis Lake Project properties. Individual outcrops vary in strike length from 11 metres to more than 240 metres and in thickness, up to 12 metres. Drilling periodically undertaken since the 1960s had demonstrated the fertility of the pegmatites for lithium. Modern exploration commenced in 2011 with drilling intersecting spodumene.
Essential Metals holds 51% project equity with its local JV partner, International Lithium Corp. (TSXV:ILC), holding 49%. Essential Metals can earn up to an 80% interest by incurring C$8.5 million in exploration by 2025.
