Company Web Site:


On October 19, 2009, the Company amended its articles of incorporation with the Secretary of the State of Nevada, pursuant to which the Company changed its name from NanoDynamics Holdings, Inc. to Li3 Energy, Inc.,
to reflect its plans to focus on its business strategy on the energy sector and related lithium mining opportunities in North and South America.
Split-off of Legacy Business
In connection with the discontinuation of the Company's previous business and the redirecting of its business strategy to focus on the energy sector and related lithium mining opportunities in North and South America, the Company split off and sold all of the assets and liabilities of the Legacy Business (the "Split-Off") to Jon Suk, the Company's founding stockholder. The Split Off closed on October 19, 2009.
Since October 2009, the company has taken the following additional steps in the development of the new business plan:

Completed the split-off of our discontinued legacy business to our founding (and former) stockholder.
Initiated activities to establish and organize our operating presence in South America and, to that end, opened and began staffing our executive office in Lima, Peru;

 Signed a binding offer to acquire Next Lithium Corp. ("Next Lithium") on November 24, 2009.  Next Lithium owns options to acquire 100% interests in the BSV Placer, CSV Placer, LM Placer and MW Placer Mineral Claims, comprising approximately 75,000 acres in total oflithi um brine mineral properties located in Big Smokey Valley near Tonopah, Nevada
Signed a binding offer to acquire Puna Lithium Corporation ("Puna") on November 25, 2009.  Puna owns an option to acquire up to an aggregate eighty percent (80%) interest in 123,000 acres of prime Chilean salar ground located across 9 Chilean salars, including the producing Salar de Atacama. Puna also owns an option to acquire up to eighty five percent (85%) of 90,000 acres of salar property in Argentina, in the Centenario, Rincon, Pocitos and Cauchari salars
  Have begun identifying and investigating additional lithium mining investment opportunities in North and South America.

Li3 Energy, Inc. (Li3 Energy), formerly NanoDynamics Holdings, Inc., is an exploration stage-company. The Company focuses on the discovery and development of lithium and potassium brine, and nitrate and iodine deposits in Chile, Argentina and Peru. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010 (fiscal 2010), Li3 Energy acquired, or signed definitive agreements to acquire, properties in Nevada, Argentina, Peru and Chile. On August 3, 2010, it acquired Alfredo. In February 2010, it acquired 100% of the assets of the Loriscota, Suches and Vizcachas Projects located respectively in the regions of Puno, Tacna and Moquegua, Peru. In July 2010, it acquired Noto Energy S.A., which owns a 100% interest over 2,995 acres situated on brine salars in Argentina, named Cauchari. In May 2011, it acquired a 60% interest in a group of six private companies that collectively owned the Maricunga Project in northern Chile. Maricunga project comprises 1,438 hectares in a mining region.

Strategic Plan
Our strategic plan is to explore and develop our existing projects and to identify opportunities and generate new projects with near-term production potential, with the goal of becoming a company with valuable lithium or industrial minerals properties.  Our primary objective is to become a low cost lithium producer as well as a significant producer of potassium nitrate. The key to achieving this objective is to become an integrated chemical company through the strategic acquisition and development of lithium assets as well as other assets that have by-product synergies.
We recorded an impairment charge to Alfredo of $4,070,000 during the year ended June 30, 2011, due to termination of the option on the Alfredo Property as a result of our not having made required option payments.
We have acquired the Maricunga project, an advanced lithium and potassium chloride project in Chile, and we continue to explore other lithium and industrial minerals prospects in the region, located to complement the Alfredo project, which we intend to secure, in order to achieve integration of operations to produce metallurgical grade lithium, commercial grade fertilizer and pharmaceutical grade iodine.
Our strategy currently principally involves the exploration of the Maricunga property and the acquisition and exploration of an iodine/nitrate property.  On the Maricunga project, we expect to spend approximately $18.2 million of exploration and development expenses in order to complete a feasibility study    on Maricunga.  (A "feasibility study" means a comprehensive study of a mineral deposit in which all geological, engineering, legal, operating, economic, social, environmental and other relevant factors are considered in sufficient detail that it could reasonably serve as the basis for a final decision whether to advance the development of the deposit for mineral production).  The Company is dividing this into two phases: (i) Spending $8 million to reach a Measured and Indicated 43-101compliant resource, which is expected in the first calendar quarter of 2012; and, if phase one is successful, (ii) spending $10 million to complete a feasibility study on the Maricunga project.  If we acquire the Alfredo Property, we would expect to spend approximately $6.3 million of acquisition costs (not including an additional up to $5.5 million payable to Alfredo Sellers upon certain post-feasibility milestones), and we would expect to incur approximately $2.7 million of exploration expenses in order to bring the Alfredo Property to the feasibility stage.  In the event we are unable to acquire the Alfredo Property, we will focus our efforts on the exploration of the Maricunga property, and we are actively exploring opportunities to acquire other iodine/sodium nitrate prospects in addition to or in lieu of the Alfredo property, although there can be no assurance that suitable prospects will be available on terms acceptable to us or that any such acquisition will be successfully completed.

As a result of the funds invested by investors in our April and May 2011 private placement and the funds invested by POSCAN on September 14, 2011, we estimate that we have sufficient funds to carry out our current strategic plan of exploration and development and meet our ongoing operational working capital needs through March 2012 (assuming we do not expend cash for other acquisitions).  In order to finance the up to approximately $15 million of expected acquisition and exploration costs outlined above over the next twelve months, as well as to fund the approximately $2.5 million of working capital we expect to require over the next twelve months, we will need to raise a substantial amount of funds through one or more offerings of our debt, equity or convertible securities, which may include the $10 million of equity financing conditionally committed by POSCAN.  There can be no assurance that such financing will be available, or will be available on acceptable terms, for us to meet these requirements.
In order to acquire the Alfredo Property, we must successfully complete negotiation and documentation of a new option or other acquisition agreement.  There can be no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining a new option on, or otherwise acquiring, Alfredo or in financing the cost of acquiring the Alfredo Property or the costs of exploring and developing Alfredo and Maricunga.  
We believe that successful execution of this first phase of our strategic acquisition program will establish Li3 Energy as a major holder of prime lithium, iodine and nitrate acreage among junior lithium explorers.
