ACME will use the gross proceeds of the Private Placement for exploration at its 100% owned Cat-Euclid and Shatford Lake lithium projects in south east Manitoba and its Clayton Valley and Fish Lake Valley, Nevada projects, as well as general working capital purposes. ACME holds 27 claims totaling approximately 11,803 acres strategically situated in the pegmatite fields of the Bird River Greenstone Belt (BRGB) in southeastern Manitoba, Canada. The northern and southern limbs of the Bird River Greenstone Belt contain at least 10 pegmatite fields and host hundreds of individual pegmatite bodies, of which many are classified as complex rare-element Lithium-Cesium-Tantalum (LCT) pegmatites.
Worldwide, LCT pegmatite deposits account for about one-fourth of the world’s lithium production, most of the tantalum production, and all the cesium production. The world-class Tanco Mine, a lithium, cesium, and tantalum producer since 1968, is in the southern limb of the BRGB and neighbours ACME’s Shatford Lake project to the north.
In Nevada, ACME is in the final process of permitting at its Clayton Valley lithium brine project for an upcoming drill program targeting prospective lithium brine targets as defined by recent geophysical work.
