• 5% lithium concentration successfully achieved in Maricunga process test work.
• Milestone first production of lithium carbonate and potash (KCl) samples from pilot pond brine
expected by the end of 4Q17.
• Advanced production testing of the lithium and potash extraction processes continues at the pilot plant stage, using tier-1 equipment suppliers Veolia, GEA, Andritz and FLSmidth and certified laboratories using brine and salts from the pilot ponds.
• The production process utilizes evaporation ponds and proven process technology, so there is minimal future uncertainty over operations, Opex and Capex of the project.
