Investment into Advanced Lithium-Tin Project in Spain.


Proposed Capital Raising of £ 367,500.


Reabold Resources Plc (LSE AIM:RBD) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to buy an initial interest in the advanced San Jose Lithium-Tin Project in Spain ("Investment") for a consideration of A$500,000 (approx. £300,000). The San Jose Project ("Project") is a Joint Venture between Plymouth Minerals Limited's ("Plymouth" ASX:PLH) subsidiary Tonsley Mining Pty Limited ("Tonsley") and Sacyr, S.A,, the IBEX 35 Spanish listed multinational infrastructures and services company. This investment is in line with Reabold's strategy to identify strategic mineral opportunities with the potential to add significant shareholder value.


To fund the Investment and for working capital purposes, the Company is proposing to arrange subscriptions totaling £367,500 for 73,500,000 new Ordinary Shares of 0.1p each ("Subscription Shares") at a price of 0.5p per share (the "Subscription") conditional on Admission to trading on AIM.


Highlights - San Jose Lithium/Tin Project:


·     Plymouth has announced high-grade historic and current drilling intercepts including;

142m @ 1.2% Li2O from 67m

68m @ 1.1% Li2O from 91m

52m @ 1.1% Li2O from 18m

45m @ 1.0% Li2O from surface

34m @ 1.3% Li2O from 103m

250m @ 1.0% Li2O from surface

·    Plymouth has also reported in excess of 1.1 million tonnes of LCE resource (Non JORC 2012). Updated JORC compliant resource expected May 2017 (including recent drilling).

·    Exceptional metallurgy results - 97% lithium recovery achieved in first stage metallurgical testwork, using well understood sulphuric acid processing routes.

·    Mineralogy confirms ore amenable to simple beneficiation as per previous historical feasibility study.

·    Deposit is open at depth and along strike.

·    Reabold is investing AUD $500,000 (approx. £300,000) for a 2.0% interest in Tonsley. £367,500 is proposed to be raised by subscriptions to fund the investment and for working capital purposes.

·    Tonsley has the right to earn a 75% interest by spending €1.5 million for a first stage 50%, then €2.5 million for the additional 25%, which is being funded by Plymouth in the San Jose Lithium-Tin Project.


Jeremy Edelman, Reabold's Chairman, commented.


"With the current dynamics surrounding the fast growing European lithium market, the Company sees tremendous opportunity in this rapidly developing San Jose Lithium-Tin Project together with the Project's development partners as they continue to add quantum steps of value to the project through their experienced personnel and professional operational skills. We see the San Jose Lithium-Tin Project as a potential company making investment going forward. The Company and Plymouth Minerals Limited, the majority owners of Tonsley, will be discussing future opportunities between them on ways to co-operate on potentially increasing Reabold's corporate and operational involvement in this exciting San Jose Lithium-Tin project."

About the San Jose Lithium-Tin Project, Spain:


Historically the Spanish Mining Company, Tolsa SA, conducted an extensive feasibility study at San Jose from 1985-1991. This included 8,400m of Reverse Circulation (RC) and diamond drilling. A resource (Not JORC 2012) was estimated and on the basis of this, mining and processing studies were undertaken. The deposit is open to the north, west and at depth and there is significant upside in the tonnage, although the most current (Non JORC 2012) estimate contains greater than 1.1 million tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent. Source: PLH website


Drilling confirms San Jose is a globally significant lithium deposit with potential to be significantly enlarged. The deepest hole drilled by Tolsa, hole number SJ-1A, which reached 391.5m down-hole and significantly to illustrate the size and scale of the deposit ended with a significant intercept of 6.5m @ 1.62% Li2O from 386m. The deepest diamond hole drilled by Plymouth, MSJ-DD-003 on section 4 reached 250m down-hole reported 250m @ 1.0% Li2O and ended in significant grade of 1.08% Li2O.

Plymouth is fast tracking JORC resource calculations with leading industry consultant, Snowden Group. A Maiden JORC Resource statement is expected in Q2 2017.Results highlight the outcropping nature of Lithium mineralisation and amenability to a bulk tonnage open pit.

The lithium is hosted in phengite-muscovite (mica) which has shown excellent sulphuric acid-leach recoveries to a lithium carbonate product. A common misunderstanding of this this kind of mica hosted lithium deposit is to compare the grades of a deposit like this one to one of spodumene mineralisation. The different mineralisation changes the metallurgy and therefore the process flowsheet. San Jose Lithium project has historically shown to recover to a lithium carbonate, which sells at a substantial premium to spodumene concentrates. From this perspective, San Jose is more akin to a high grade brine operation than a spodumene mine. Source: Hartleys Analyst report 2nd March 2017

Glossary of terms

Lithium grades are normally presented in percentages or parts per million (ppm). Grades of deposits are also expressed as lithium compounds in percentages, for example as a percent lithium oxide (Li2O) content or percent lithium carbonate (Li2CO3) content.


Lithium carbonate equivalent ("LCE") is the industry standard terminology for, and is equivalent to, Li2CO3. Use of LCE is to provide data comparable with industry reports and is the total equivalent amount of lithium carbonate, assuming the lithium content in the deposit is converted to lithium carbonate, using the conversion rates in the table included further below to get an equivalent Li2CO3 value in per cent. Use of LCE assumes 100% recovery and no process losses in the extraction of Li2CO3 from the deposit.

Tonsley Mining Pty Ltd. through its wholly owned subsidiary, EXTREMADURA MINING, S.L.U., can earn an interest in the San Jose Lithium-Tin project after Valoriza Mineria has acquired all relevant and necessary access permits to allow exploration (Investigation permits) through the following;

• Stage 1: Upon Valoriza Mineria obtaining the Investigation Permit, Valoriza Mineria and EXTREMADURA will conduct technical and economic evaluation studies on the San Jose Mine (SJM) and submit and Exploitation Concession (CdE) to the Extremadura Government within a period of 12 months (or such later date agreed by the Extremadura Government). At this point, Plymouth will earn a 50% interest in the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) by expending €1.5 million on technical and related studies, exploration and other works required to produce the CdE which will include the submission of the CdE at any point until the end of Stage 1.

• EXTREMADURA may withdraw from its expenditure commitments at any time during Stage 1. EXTREMADURA forfeits all rights should it withdraw during Stage 1, or should it not meet the expenditure requirements and conditions of Stage 1.

• EXTREMADURA can elect to increase its stake (Stage 2) or may continue in a 50/50 JV with Valoriza Mineria to develop the project on standard industry terms.

• Stage 2: If EXTREMADURA elects to increase its shareholding in the SPV to 75% it will enter into "Stage 2". During Stage 2, EXTREMADURA may increase its shareholding by expending a further minimum €2.5 million on or in relation to the SJM over a period of 2 years and by producing a Feasibility Study (FS). This can be extended to 3 years with a payment of €0.1 million if the FS has not been completed.

• EXTREMADURA may, at its sole discretion by notice in writing within 45 days of the date that EXTREMADURA earns the 75% interest, buy the remaining 25% interest in the SPV for a staged payment comprised of a) €0.5 million cash to be paid within 90 days, b) €0.5 million cash at commencement of mining, and c) 2% NSR capped at €3.0 million. EXTREMADURA can accelerate this payment by paying €2.5 million cash.

• EXTREMADURA may accelerate ownership through either Stage 1 or 2 by advancing payment to the SPV of the minimum funds required for the completion of works. For the stage 2, in addition to the advancing payment required, EXTREMADURA shall complete the FS.

• EXTREMADURA may withdraw from its expenditure commitments at any time during Stage 2. EXTREMADURA forfeits all rights to earn a 75% shareholding of the SPV should it withdraw during Stage 2, or should it not meet the expenditure requirements of Stage 2. In that event, EXTREMADURA will retain its 50% shareholding in the SPV and the parties will form the JV.
