CORPORATE MATTERS

Placement

On 10 May 2019, the Company announced that it would be undertaking a placement, mainly to European based sophisticated investors, at an issue price of $0.09 per share to raise proceeds of up to €1.5million (before expenses) (Placement).

During the quarter, the Company issued 5.3m shares to raise cash proceeds of $477,000 (before expenses).

Magna Financing Facility

As previously announced, the Company established a A$10m finance facility with MEF I, L.P. (Magna) of which A$2.5m (1,840,500 convertible notes) was drawn down on 7 September 2018.

During the quarter, the Company established a new finance facility with Winance Investment LLC replacing the facility with Magna.  

On 13 September 2019, Magna agreed to extend the maturity date of the convertible notes on issue from 7 September 2019 to 30 November 2019.  In consideration for this extension, the Company issued Magna 1,000,000 fully paid ordinary shares on 13 September 2019.

During the quarter, Magna converted 150,000 notes and redeemed 434,782 notes (each with a face value of US$1.10).  As at 30 September 2019, Magna had 103,260 convertible notes remaining.

Winance Financing Facility

On 31 July 2019, the Company announced that it had secured an A$10m finance facility with Winance Investment LLC (Winance) to repay the residual amount owing to Magna, to fast-track the completion of a DFS at the Company's Wolfsberg Lithium Project in Austria and for general working capital purposes.

An initial amount of A$2.0m (2,000 notes) was drawn down on 20 September 2019 and a further A$8.0m is available in tranche of A$1.0m each upon full conversion of the notes from the previous drawdown, subject to a cooling off period.

Full terms and conditions of the convertible securities are included in the announcement released on 31 July 2019.

During the quarter, Winance converted 160 notes.  As at 30 September 2019, Winance had 1,840 convertible notes remaining.

EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES

Wolfsberg Lithium Project

Drilling

Drill core samples have been assayed at ALS laboratory in Dublin, Ireland where crushing, pulp and Li2O analysis was completed. The Company expects final results from phase 1 drilling in Q4, 2019.

Five shallow drill holes of phase 1 with a maximum depth of 290.0 m were completed in Zone 1 during Q3 2019. All five drill holes show multiple pegmatite intersections. Three drill holes contain pegmatite intersections with a true thickness up to 2 m. The phase 1 drillings confirm the suspected extension of pegmatite veins with depth (see Sections).

Table 1: Drill hole collar positions and properties of phase 1 drilling

In total, 111 samples were submitted to ALS Global in Ireland for analyses. Of those 5 were blanks, 6 were certified reference material (standards), and 21 were duplicates. The strip logs of all five drill holes are presented in Appendix A with sample interval grades shown in Appendix B. Table 2 shows all intersections with a measured thickness of 0.3 m and above including calculated true thickness. All Sections for drill holes P18-13, P18-22 and P18-26 are shown in Figures 2-4.

Figure 2: Section for drill hole P18-13

Drill hole P18-13 intercepted several pegmatite veins with most remarkable one at 216.1m having 4.1m true thickness with more than 1.5% Li2O composited grade.

Figure 3: Section for drill hole P18-22

Drill hole P18-22 intercepted three major pegmatites veins ranging from 0.85 to 1.17m of true thickness with lithium grade up to 0.7 % Li2O.

http://www.rns-pdf.londonstockexchange.com/rns/7740R_1-2019-10-31.pdf

 

Figure 4: Section for drill hole P18-26

Drill hole P18-26 intercepted four pegmatites with true thickness ranging from 0.81m to over 2m with lithium up to 1% Li2O.

Drill holes P18-13, P18-22 and P18-26 were located between deep drilling undertaken in 2017 and historical (MINEREX) drilling in order to assist in the conversion of inferred resources (2017) into indicated.

Drill holes P18-28 and P18-29 were exploration drill holes, and they are projected to confirm continuity of the pegmatite vein toward the west where the previous mapping identified outcropping pegmatites at the area. Although P18-29 intercepted relative thin spodumene-bearing pegmatite vein, the results proved that the pegmatite veins remain open toward that area. Drill hole P18-28 is located in the area between established inferred resources (2017) and P18-29. This drill hole confirms continuity of pegmatites veins toward the west. Drill hole P18-28 intercepted at 82.7m 2.05m of pegmatite containing more than 1.5 % Li2O.

Table 3: Sampling Intervals and grades

Applications for additional deep holes (>300m depth, phase 2) is under assessment with the relevant authorities during the quarter. The public hearing that is a compulsory part of the approval process for drill holes at depth >300m has been scheduled by the mining authority on the 30 October 2019.

Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS)

Results from Phase 1 of the summer drilling program (shallow holes <300m depth in Zone 1) are being assessed for eligibility to convert the JORC resource from Inferred into Measured and Indicated category and upgrade resources to 10.98mt. This will form the basis to convert the Measured and Indicated resources into JORC reserves during the DFS mine planning and scheduling. The Zone 1 drilling programme to increase the Measured and Indicated Resource allows the DFS to be undertaken at the envisaged higher mining rate of max. 800,000tpa.

SRK Consulting (SRK) continued to work on the optimized mine design and increased declaration of mineral reserves, based on the PFS and current drilling program results when the data become available.

During the 3rd quarter, Dorfner/Anzaplan carried out significant metallurgical test work to assess and optimize the process lines, flowsheets and layouts. This testing is to ensure a high-quality final product (Lithium Hydroxide) is produced using the most efficient and competitive metallurgical processes from the beginning of the production cycle.

DRA Global has independently assessed and reviewed the metallurgical test work to complete the research in a timely manner and attended to all work stages at the testing facility in Hirschau, Germany.

Hydrogeology

The Company continues with hydrogeology monitoring program on a weekly, monthly and quarterly time frame:

·      Weekly monitoring includes measuring the water level at the surface and underground sites,

·      The monthly monitoring program includes sampling and analysing defined chemical and physical parameters,

·      The quarterly monitoring program includes water sampling and analysing water from previously defined field sites and analyses at certified Austrian lab in Austria. The water samples are analysed according to the Austrian state requirements for drinking water.

All hydrogeological data continues to be stored and secured into the Company's database.

The preparation work by SRK, and the geological consultant, GEO Unterweissacher, continues to ensure in-hole hydrogeological test work has been completed appropriately and can continue in future.

Environmental

No environmental work has been carried out in Q3/2019.

Monitoring of water flows and quality from the mine have continued.

Product Marketing  

The strategy for the Company remains unchanged and focuses on the supply of lithium hydroxide to the nascent lithium battery plants of Europe. The Company is in discussion with a number of industry players regarding future off-take contracts and good progress has already been made in the advanced discussions with potential off-take partners.

Horizon 2020

As reported in Q1 2019, the Company's 100% owned subsidiary ECM Lithium AT GmbH (ECM) has lodged contribution papers to participate in the European Union funded Horizon 2020 - GREENPEG programme.  The application process continues with the relevant authorities - next level documentation is expected to be lodged in Q4/2019.
