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

 

Tier-1 location

  • 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

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.
