About Loyal Lithium
Loyal Lithium (ASX: LLI) is a lithium-led battery minerals and technology company exploring highly prospective targets in the renowned lithium producing areas of the James Bay District of Quebec and the Sarcobatus Flat in Nevada. The company's North American projects are located in Tier 1 jurisdictions with established lithium exploration and mining operations, and have excellent access to infrastructure.
Both the Brisk and Trieste lithium projects are located in Quebec’s James Bay Lithium District, which hosts a number of world-class projects and is proximate to the rapidly growing electric vehicle markets of North America and Europe. Québec is actively developing and investing in its mineral resource sector, particularly in the battery metals and critical minerals sectors, resulting in an abundance of skilled labour and a deep well of local knowledge that Loyal Lithium is tapping as the project advances.
The Scotty Lithium Project in Nevada is adjacent to the existing Iconic Minerals Ltd (TSXV: ICM) Bonnie Claire Project, with similar geology existing between the two. Quartz-rich volcanic rocks that contain anomalous amounts of lithium occur within and adjacent to the drainage basin with a USGS geochemical analysis yielding significant lithium values. The Project is located 189 km northwest of Las Vegas and 517 km from Reno, Nevada, where Tesla’s GigaFactory is located.
Lithium compounds are found in many everyday products, notably the lithium-ion-batteries powering our laptops, smartphones and electric vehicles. Lithium carbonate and lithium bromide are also used in numerous industries in the manufacturing process.
Lithium ion batteries underpin the revolution in mobile communication and electrified transportation. As the world rapidly transitions to a clean energy future, Loyal Lithium is focused on the sustainable exploration and development of its projects by considering the full lithium supply chain, whilst staying loyal to our partners, shareholders and the planet.
