Rincon Lithium Project - Argentina

OVERVIEW

The Rincon Lithium Project currently comprises up to ~2,794 hectares of Mining Titles and mining easement landholdings at the Salar del Rincon in Salta Province, Argentina.

Argosy currently has a 77.5% interest in the JV entity that owns Rincon Lithium Project - Puna Mining S.A., with the right to move to 90% ownership in consideration for funding Stage 3 development.

The Mining Titles are 100% owned by Puna Mining and/or Argosy has legal, secure, binding and exclusive option rights to complete 100% acquisition of the properties

The Project is located in the elevated and arid Puna region of Argentina and forms part of a number of highly mineralised salars in production and development.

Geological studies within the Salar del Rincon show historical sample values that are promising for further studies to determine a potential development perspective. Historical data and records within the Rincon Project have been investigated by Mr Alurralde and will be used to assist with the Company’s works programs, however no feasibility studies have been completed within the Project area. The Project area is serviced by high quality infrastructure including access via all-seasons roads, electrical power, a terminus for a natural gas pipeline and road and railway to Antofagasta port facilities in Chile.

SUMMARY

The Rincon Lithium Project located in the world-class “Lithium Triangle” – the world’s dominant source of lithium production:

–Located in Salar del Rincon, Salta Province, Argentina
–Flagship asset in Argosy’s lithium fast-track development strategy, staged development commenced targeting battery grade lithium carbonate (LCE) production
–Rincon is joint-venture with pre-eminent lithium processing expert, Pablo Alurralde
–Stage 1 industrial scale pilot plant now operational
–Stage 2 initial commercial development commenced – ~38Ha of evaporations ponds complete and operational

Stage 1 plant operational & production of battery grade LCE product

Stage 2 works progressing

Initial ~38Ha evaporation ponds completed
Production wells completed and brine pumping on-going
– 245,000t Indicated JORC-compliant Resource completed
- Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) completed
- Awaiting to commence construction of ~2,000tpa LCE processing plant, pending funding

For Stage 3, pending successful development and production from Stage 2, the Company will consider the best development pathway to ultimately target commercial production from the Project and then earn its ultimate 90% interest in the JV Entity.
