ILI.v $ARXRF Georgia Lakes neighbour making moves in Germany...Rock Tech wins thyssenkrupp Materials Trading as potential supplier of raw materials and customer for its lithium hydroxide
VANCOUVER, BC, July 7, 2022 /CNW/ - Rock Tech Lithium Inc. (TSXV: RCK) (OTCQX: RCKTF) (FWB: RJIB) (WKN: A1XF0V) ("Rock Tech" or the "Company") has entered into a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (the "MOU") with materials distributor and service provider thyssenkrupp Materials Trading GmbH ("thyssenkrupp Materials Trading") in relation to establishing a strategic partnership to supply lithium spodumene concentrate. Rock Tech plans to refine the mineral from the end of 2024 at its proposed converter in Guben, Germany, into high-purity lithium hydroxide, a key element in batteries for electric cars and plug-in hybrids.

The MOU between the two companies also includes a framework relating to the purchase of high-purity lithium hydroxide by thyssenkrupp Materials Trading for the battery market, as well as other by-products resulting from the refining process. Thus, the potential partnership is expected to promote a more resilient supply chain for lithium directly out of Germany, from raw material sourcing, to refining, to meeting demand of the automotive industry and growing electromobility demands.
Markus Brügmann, Rock Tech's chief executive officer says: "With thyssenkrupp Materials Trading we have found al global logistics and trading partner that gives us further security in the supply of spodumene. This is expected to give us a broader base for our input stream, which would take us a big step forward on the road to success."
Wolfgang Schnittker, chief executive officer of thyssenkrupp Materials Trading, says: "The potential partnership with Rock Tech underlines the systematic expansion of our global trading activities in the international battery and electric vehicles industry. The trading of lithium products would add another very important raw material to our supply portfolio for the production of long-life batteries."
Spodumene is one of the most important raw materials, amongst others, for the production of lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles. For this purpose, the spodumene mineral must be refined into lithium hydroxide, which can then be supplied to cathode manufacturers for the battery industry worldwide. Cathodes are essential components of battery cells. The lithium spodumene concentrate will be used in Rock Tech's first converter in Guben, Germany, which is expected to produce battery-grade lithium hydroxide from 2024.

ILI.v $ARXRF Stockwatch Diamond & Specialty Minerals Summary for May 12, 2022
2022-05-12 20:09 ET - Market Summary
by Will Purcell
J.C. St-Amour's Imagine Lithium Inc. ( $ILI ) lost one-half cent to eight cents on 137,000 shares on word that it has drilled an eight-metre interval averaging 1.28 per cent lithium oxide at its Jackpot project in the Georgia Lake district, just north of Nipigon in Northern Ontario. The assays are new, but the drilling is not: The holes were completed in 2018 and Imagine Lithium has gotten around to testing this unsampled core just now. A second hole produced 1.02 per cent lithium oxide over 8.8 metres and while the two others also encountered lithium, the grades were lower and the intervals shorter.Mr. St-Amour, president, says that once he and his crew "refocused on the Jackpot lithium project," they recognized that the old core displayed significant but unsampled spodumene mineralization. The assays, he cheers, "confirm the visuals that we have been seeing." Accordingly, the visually-inclined Mr. St-Amour is looking forward to seeing results from the company's current drill program. That drilling, he cheers, is designed to test the main dike swarm at Jackpot, and to expand on the known historical resource area. The drilling is going well, he concludes, as samples from five holes are now at the lab.Jackpot does indeed have a historical resource, based on two of several known lithium-bearing pegmatite dikes. One of those dikes supported a calculation listing two million tonnes at 1.09 per cent lithium oxide, the other dike contained 750,000 tonnes at 1.38 per cent. Those grades are intriguing and are in line with what has been turning up elsewhere in the Georgia Lake area.
ILI.v $ARXRF Imagine Lithium Sells Its Interests in Red Lake
by @newsfile on 27 Apr 2022, 04:0
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 27, 2022) - IMAGINE LITHIUM INC. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Imagine") announced today that it has signed amended agreements to divest of all of its holdings in the Red Lake area to Trillium Gold Mines Inc. (TSXV: TGM) ("Trillium"), and Pegasus Resources Inc. ("Pegasus").
Further to its news release dated December 15, 2021, Trillium and Imagine have signed an amended Definitive Agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") whereby Trillium will acquire a majority of Imagine's property holdings known as the Eastern Vision Project, located in the Confederation Lake assemblage of the Birch-Uchi greenstone belt in the Red Lake District, Ontario. Under the terms of the Definitive Agreement, Trillium will acquire 13,958 hectares between the Fredart, Confederation North, and Confederation South properties for a consideration of 2,800,000 common shares of Trillium and $175,000 in cash.
In addition, Imagine has entered into an Amending, Settlement and Termination Agreement with Pegasus (the "Pegasus Agreement") with respect to the February 3, 2020 agreements relating to the Garnet Lake property and portions of the Fredart property (the "Option Agreements"). Under the Pegasus Agreement, Pegasus has agreed to issue to Imagine 5,000,000 common shares of Pegasus in exchange for delivery of certain payment obligations under the Option Agreements and Imagine relinquishing its right to complete the option for the claims under the Option Agreements. The Definitive Agreement and the Pegasus Agreement remain subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
J.C. St-Amour, President of Imagine commented, "The transactions to divest of the Red Lake properties gives Imagine, through its share ownership in Trillium and Pegasus, exposure to a larger consolidated land package extending greater than 100 km in length in the Red Lake area. This also allows us to focus our exploration efforts on our 100% owned Jackpot Lithium project where a drill program is actively underway."
The Jackpot Lithium property, located in the Georgia Lake Area about 140 km NNE of Thunder Bay, Ontario, is approximately 12 km by air from the TransCanada Highway (Hwy 11) and the main railroad which connects to the port town of Nipigon, on Lake Superior. The property contains known lithium bearing granitic pegmatite dikes, of which two provided estimated hi
