Portugal: Lusidakota Lithium Projects Overview

  • Portugal is highly prospective for petalite and spodumene-hosted lithium deposits. It is currently the leading lithium producer in Europe (mostly small-scale mining)
  • Countries in Europe are leading the world in uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) using lithium-ion batteries, with EVs already totalling 22% of all new vehicle sales in Norway
  • Lithium-ion batteries are already being produced in Europe to meet this increasing demand, and production capacity is growing dramatically to keep up, with Daimler-Mercedes recently expanding its factory in Germany, and multiple other factories to follow suit in Poland, Hungary and the UK
  • European battery producers need a secure, ethical and low-carbon footprint source of lithium. Dakota is well placed to supply this expected surge in demand
  • Portugal ranked in the global Top 10 of all countries in the Fraser Institute 2015 Survey of Mining Companies for Policy Perception Index
  • Very large (753sqkm), highly prospective tenement package covering three main lithium pegmatite fields in Northern Portugal with known lithium-bearing (petalite/spodumene) pegmatites:
    • Barroso – Alvão Pegmatite Field (including Sepeda project)
    • Serra de Arga Pegmatite Field
    • Barca de Alva Pegmatite Field
  • Tenement package consists of eight exploration licences (one granted and seven under application*)
  • Historical small scale mining within tenement package
  • Close to excellent power, storage, transport infrastructure, and local workforce
