Lake Resources share price lifts from quarterly

Key takeouts from the report include:

Lake Resources is continuing discussions with US-based Ford Motor Company and Japan’s Hanwa Co Ltd for the offtake of lithium carbonate from its flagship Kachi Lithium Brine Project in Argentina
The company is advancing its Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS), and expects the final drafts to be ready toward the end of the third quarter of 2022
Discussions on supporting around 70% of the total finance required for Kachi’s expanded production continue with UK Export Finance (UKEF) and Export Development Canada (EDC)
Lake continues its push for “multi-asset lithium expansion”, with a second drilling rig now at its lithium brine projects at Olaroz, Cauchari and Paso in Argentina
The company aims to start production at its Kachi Project in 2024.

What else happened during this period?

The company noted that its demonstration plant has arrived in Argentina and is now being assembled prior to commissioning.

Lake says the modular design allows for a “plug and play” approach once brine feed, power and reagents are connected.

The demonstration plant will operate for around three-four months to produce lithium chloride. This will be converted into “high purity battery quality lithium carbonate”, ready for sale to potential off-takers.

The company also left the quarter with $173 million in cash on the balance sheet due to the conversion of $62 million options in June.
