Lithium Power International (LPI) is a pure-play lithium company focused on the development of Chile’s next high-grade lithium mine. The Maricunga JV, in which LPI holds a 51% interest, is the highest quality pre-production lithium brine project in South America and has one of the world’s highest-grade lithium resources at 1,167 mg/l lithium and 8,500 mg/l potassium. The 2019 JORC and NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate for the deposit totals 2.07 Mt LCE now all classified as Measured or Indicated & 5.38 Mt KCl from surface to 200m depth. Significant potential for resource expansion lies in an exploration target of 1.0 – 2.5 Mt of LCE and 3 – 6.6 Mt of KCl between 200m and 400m depth. The exploration target has been drilled to 360m and remains lithium enriched and open at depth.
