About Frontier Lithium

Frontier Lithium is a preproduction business that is targeting to become a manufacturer of battery-quality lithium materials to support electric vehicle and battery supply chains in North America. Frontier is developing the PAK Lithium Project which contains one of North America's highest-grade, large-tonnage hard-rock lithium resources in the form of a rare low-iron spodumene. Frontier continues to have significant exploration upside with potential to increase its lithium resource. The Company is a pure-play lithium development opportunity with the largest land position in a premium lithium mineral district located in Northern Ontario

About the PAK Lithium Project

The Project is a Tier 1 lithium resource, containing the highest-grade lithium deposit and targeting to be top three by size in North America. The Project encompasses 26,774 hectares and remains largely unexplored; however, since 2013, the company has delineated two premium spodumene-bearing lithium deposits (PAK and Spark), located 2.3 kilometres apart. These deposits are supported by a measured and indicated resource of 21.64 million tonnes (Mt) averaging 1.56 per cent lithium oxide (Li2O) and inferred resource of 20.86 Mt averaging 1.48 per cent Li2O.  A fully integrated lithium operation from the resource for production of battery-quality lithium salts study resulted in an after-tax net present value (discounted at 8 per cent) of $974-million (U.S.) with a 21-per-cent internal rate of return. (2021 Preliminary Economic Assessment, NI 43-101 technical report titled "Pak Property" by BBA E&C Inc., issued on April 5, 2021).Considerable exploration upside is underpinned by two other spodumene-bearing discoveries: the Bolt pegmatite (located between the PAK and Spark deposits), as well as the Pennock pegmatite 30 kilometres northwest of PAK Deposit within the project claims.
