Restrictions have limited impact on Lake operations
Lake's focus has been on progressing of lithium brine samples from Lake's Kachi Lithium Brine Project in Argentina using its U.S. technology partner Lilac Solutions' direct extraction ion exchange pilot plant module in Oakland, California. Lilac will process the brine to produce high-purity lithium chloride for conversion to battery-grade lithium carbonate for prospective off-takers. COVID-19 restrictions may delay this delay this process.
Argentina has previously announced incentives to support the lithium sector and the oil & gas sector via presidential commentary on 1 March and 3 March 2020. It is the company's intention to follow up on the possibilities available to assist in future financing for construction.
