American Lithium (Stock Symbols – TSXV: LI, OTC: LIACF, Frankfurt: 5LA1) is an exploration stage company, engaging in the identification, acquisition, exploration, and development of resource properties in the United States and Peru. The company primarily explores for lithium, vanadium, and uranium.
It primarily focuses on the Tonopah Claystone Claims Property covering an area of approximately 4,000 acres located in the town of Tonopah, Nevada. The company recently acquired Plateau Energy Metals, and is advancing the large-scale Falchani hard rock lithium deposit, as well as one of Latin America’s most prolific uranium deposits, known as Macusani located in southeastern Peru.
The company wholly owns the TLC claystones lithium deposit in America, which is in very close proximity to the Tesla giga-factory in Nevada.
With a near-term focus on these mining-friendly jurisdictions, the company has the advantage of both geographic and geological diversity for developing these world-class, scalable projects.
The company’s focus on strategic metals which have been designated as “critical minerals” by the US government and by other “friendly” Latin American nations, such as Peru is of significance.
