Core's successful combination of the two leading lithium projects (Finniss and Bynoe) in the Northern Territory marks a key commercial milestone in building an expanded lithium project in an ideal location to service accelerating global demand.
The new Bynoe acquisition provides a large number of additional lithium pegmatite targets and more than 50 historic pegmatite prospects to Core's portfolio and also includes a granted Mineral Lease, Extractive Mineral Permit and three Exploration Licences. The Mineral Lease (ML) is over historic tin mining and concentrate operations once operated by Greenbushes, 1km from Grants and provides Core with an opportunity to potentially expedite development and expand capacity for spodumene production.
Core has already commenced exploration work on the new Bynoe tenements and is planning to commence a drill program this month targeted at expanding on the widespread lithium mineralisation highlighted by LTR's early results.
Core has issued to Liontown 39,232,025 fully paid ordinary shares and has paid $1,500,000 cash as consideration for the purchase of licences comprising the Bynoe Lithium Project, as per the terms of the agreement announced on 14 September 2017.

- 13,077,342 shares escrowed to 7 March 2018
