Millennial Lithium Corp. (ML: TSX.V) (A3N2:GR: Frankfurt) (MLNLF: OTCQB) (“Millennial” or the “Company”) would like to provide an update on the progress of the REMSA award of properties at Pastos Grandes. In the Company’s news release dated August 24, 2017 the Company announced that it had been awarded, by REMSA (the Salta Province, Argentina provincial energy and mining company) certain exploration and development rights to properties (the "REMSA Properties") contiguous to the Company’s Pastos Grandes Project.
The Company is continuing to work with REMSA towards executing the final agreement on the REMSA properties according to the process described in the August 24, 2017 news release for doing so. The final decision of REMSA concluding the tender process and awarding 2,492 hectares of claims to Millennial, allowed for an appeal process. The losing party of the tender, which opposes the acquisition by the Company of the REMSA Properties (and which was a competing bidder for the REMSA Properties) first filed an administrative appeal which was rejected, confirming the awarding of the Properties to Millennial. Following this, on August 29, 2017, the same party filed at a judicial instance for a protective action against the award of the REMSA Properties to the Company and a precautionary measure (the Appeal), this has temporarily suspended the signing of the final agreement with REMSA until a final judgment is passed as res judicata.
The Company is working with REMSA to obtain further details of the Appeal and has been assured by REMSA that: (i) REMSA remains committed to the award of the REMSA Properties to the Company; and (ii) REMSA intends to oppose the Appeal in applicable Argentina courts. The Company cannot, at this time, quantify what, if any delay to its acquisition the Appeal will result in or if the Appeal will have a lasting impact on the Company’s rights to the REMSA Properties and the award of the REMSA Properties to it.
The Company views the Appeal, in part, as a symptom of the intense competition for lithium assets in Argentina and in particular for the highly prospective REMSA properties in Salta Province, which were awarded to Millennial Lithium.
