VANCOUVER, BC (July 21, 2022) —Clear Sky Lithium Corp. (CSE: POWR) (FRA: K4A / WKN: A3DM2W) (“Clear Sky” or the “Company”), a mineral exploration and development company focused on American lithium deposits to support domestic demand, is pleased to offer a perspective of the lithium mining opportunity present within its regional area of operations in Nevada, USA.
Today, the USA is home to only one active lithium mine in Nevada. Consequently, much of the world’s lithium comes from South America, Australia, and China, with the U.S. producing less than 2% of the world’s supply of lithium. According to a report by the USGS, lithium supply security has become a top priority for technology companies in the United States and Asia. Strategic alliances and joint ventures among technology companies and exploration companies continue to be established to ensure a reliable, diversified supply of lithium for battery suppliers and vehicle manufacturers. In a strategic response, the Biden administration announced access to funding for a variety of resource sector initiatives through the Defense Production Act as well as a $5B plan. This plan has shown to be successful with the announcement in the last month of two multi-billion dollar lithium-ion battery factories to be built in the USA.
Clear Sky’s CEO and Director, Craig Engelsman, comments, “We are really excited for our prospects in central Nevada. It’s a mining-friendly region and once the industry hits the tipping point in transforming development projects into producers, I believe we will see job creation and capital investment flow into the region like the big oil days in Texas, Oklahoma, North Dakota, New Mexico, Colorado, and Alaska. Lithium is the new oil and Nevada is the right place at the right time. There are already several advanced stage lithium projects nearby, and we look forward to advancing our current ELi lithium property and any future claims into playing an important role in this exciting segment of the resource sector, in support of the world’s remarkable new generation of domestic electrification.”
Its not just electric vehicles driving battery demand either, significant demand for intermittent renewable energy generation such as solar and wind are increasing the demand and viability for lithium battery solutions that encompass home storage to mega grid installations. The growth of the large storage sector is transforming job opportunities and investment across the nation in a myriad of ways and breathing new life into regions and communities which have languished due to the exodus of American manufacturing to China in previous decades.
In fact, research data from BMI reported the gigafactory pipeline is now over 300 projects and is up 68% YoY to 6,387.6 GWh, which would require about 5.4 million tons of lithium (LCE) per year by 2030-32. In 2021, the world produced just 0.54 million tons of lithium (LCE). Recently, the Nevada Division of Minerals published that as of May 28, 2022 an estimated 15,494 active, filed, and submitted lithium placer claims, have been located in Nevada. With the U.S. lithium battery market alone expected to reach $10.3B by 2026, and with global demand poised to achieve $52.5B for the same period, recent media reports indicate the world is beginning to understand that large volumes, perhaps ten times (10X) the current production of new lithium supply will be needed this decade to meet growing demand.
The Company is pleased to announce that certain holders of its share purchase warrants (“Warrants”), have exercised an aggregate of $145,017. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the exercise of the Warrants to fund digital marketing and awareness campaigns.
The Company also announces that it has engaged bullVestor Medien GmBH (“bullVestor”), an arm’s length party to the Company, to provide digital marketing services commencing on July 15, 2022, and running through October 15, 2022. The services will include the creation of content, strategic planning, digital advertisement placement, and overseeing progress and results of digital campaigns (collectively, the “Services”). In consideration for providing the Services, the Company has agreed to pay to bullVestor EUR250,000. Consideration offered to bullVestor does not include any securities of the Company.
