The scientific and technical information contained in this website has been reviewed and approved by Ted O’Connor, a Director of the Company, who is a Qualified Persons as defined in National Instrument 43-101.
Certain scientific and technical information with respect to the TLC Lithium Project (TLC) contained on this website has been taken from the technical report entitled “Tonopah Lithium Claims Project NI 43-101 Technical Report – Preliminary Economic Assessment” dated March 17, 2023 with an effective date of January 31, 2023, which was prepared by DRA Global and Stantec, and can be found under the Company’s profile on SEDAR+ (www.sedarplus.ca). Certain scientific and technical information with respect to: (a) the Falchani Lithium Project contained on this website has been taken from the technical report entitled “Falchani Lithium Project NI 43-101 Technical Report – Preliminary Economic Assessment” with an effective date of February 4, 2020 and prepared by John Joseph Riordan, David Alan Thompson, Valentine Eugene Coetzee and Stewart Nupen of DRA Pacific.; and (b) the Macusani Uranium Project contained on this website has been taken from the technical report entitled “Macusani Project, Macusani, Peru, NI 43-101 Report – Preliminary Economic Assessment” with an effective date of January 12, 2016 and prepared by Michael Short and Thomas Apelt of GBM Minerals Engineering Consultants Limited, David Young of The Mineral Corporation and Mark Mounde of Wardell Armstrong International Limited, copies of both of which are available on PLU’s SEDAR+ profile at www.sedarplus.ca. The preliminary economic assessments included herein are preliminary in nature and include inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the preliminary economic assessments will be realized. Additional work is required to upgrade the mineral resources to mineral reserves. In addition, the mineral resource estimates could be materially affected by environmental, geotechnical, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing or other relevant factors. All figures are reported in US dollars (“$”), unless otherwise noted. Economic highlights represent the Company’s 100% interest in the projects.
CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING 32 CONCESSIONS
Thirty-two of the one-hundred-seventy-four concessions comprising the Falchani and Macusani Projects are currently subject to Administrative and Judicial processes in Peru to overturn resolutions issued by INGEMMET and the Mining Council of MINEM in February 2019 and July 2019, respectively, which declared title to thirty-two concessions invalid due to late receipt of the annual validity payments. On November 2, 2021, American Lithium was awarded a favorable ruling in regard to title to the concessions, but on November 26, 2021, appeals of the judicial ruling were lodged by INGEMMET and MINEM. A three-judge tribunal of Peru’s Superior Court unanimously upheld the ruling in a decision reported in November 2023. American Lithium was subsequently notified that INGEMMET and MINEM have filed petitions to the Supreme Court of Peru to assume jurisdiction in the proceedings. Given the precedent of the original ruling it is hoped that the Supreme Court will not assume jurisdiction; however, there is no assurance of the outcome at this time.
