Company description

Piedmont Lithium is an emerging lithium chemicals company focused on the development of its 100%-owned Piedmont Lithium Project in North Carolina, with the goal of becoming a strategic domestic supplier of battery-grade lithium hydroxide and other chemicals to the growing electric vehicle and battery storage markets in the United States.

With resource updates, permit approvals, metallurgical testwork, and feasibility study scheduled for completion in 2019, our aim is to fast track the Piedmont Lithium Project towards production as a fully-integrated domestic source of battery-grade lithium and capitalize on the widely anticipated shortfall of lithium in global markets over the next decade.

Key takeaways:

1. Fully integrated lithium chemical business

Piedmont plans to become a fully integrated producer of lithium hydroxide with the construction of an integrated chemical plant presented in their PFS. 

2. Off-take agreement with Tesla

The company has a conditional off-take agreement with Tesla for their spodumene concentrate.

3. Strategic investment of $12 million in Sayona Mining

Piedmont made a strategic investment in Sayona Mining, which included a future off-take agreement from their Canadian hard rock mining project.
