VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 14, 2023 — Alpha Lithium Corporation (NEO: ALLI) (OTC: APHLF) (Germany WKN: A3CUW1) (“Alpha” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has filed the final NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) with an effective date of July 4, 2023, on SEDAR. The full report is available under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com and will be available on its website at www.alphalithium.com.
The PEA, which provides a completely independent economic assessment of the potential value of Tolillar, based on the lithium resources outlined in the September 2022 maiden resource estimate (see news release August 23, 2022). Based on the results of continuous drilling since mid-2022, Alpha expects to update the resource estimate, which is used within the PEA, shortly.
Using upper-end cost-estimates, and low long-term lithium carbonate pricing assumptions, Ausenco Chile Limitada prepared a conservative PEA, with significant room for improvement as Tolillar is further explored and developed. Tolillar represents one of the last, large, independent, wholly-owned lithium brine salars globally, and once the latest technical work is incorporated, Tolillar should become an even larger and longer-lived operation.
