Pantera Minerals Limited (ASX: PFE) – Smackover Lithium Brine Acres Grow By An Additional 16.6%

Pantera Minerals Limited (ASX: PFE) 2 mins read

Pantera Minerals Limited (ASX: PFE), a leading player in the lithium exploration sector, is excited to announce significant developments in its Superbird Lithium Project and the strategic acquisition of Daytona Lithium Pty Ltd.

Expansion of Superbird Project

The Superbird Project, a cornerstone in Pantera’s portfolio, has undergone a substantial expansion. With the recent acquisition of an additional 1,724 acres, the project now encompasses a total of 12,103 acres, marking a nearly 17% increase in land position. This expansion is not only adjacent to but also on trend from the renowned Exxon Mobil Lithium Brine project. Since Pantera’s initial investment in Daytona Lithium, the Superbird Project has seen a remarkable 127% increase in land size, growing from 5,325 acres to its current expanse. Furthermore, negotiations are underway to secure an additional 9,000 acres, which will further solidify the project's position in the region.

Acquisition of Daytona Lithium

In a strategic move to consolidate its leadership in the lithium market, Pantera has entered into a Binding Implementation Agreement for the acquisition of 100% of the issued share capital in Daytona Lithium, the holder of the Superbird Lithium Project. This acquisition has received unanimous approval from Daytona Lithium shareholders. While Pantera currently holds the right to acquire up to a 35% interest in Daytona Lithium through a $2 million Convertible Note Facility, it has not yet converted any of the notes into shares.

Strategic Location and Industry Synergy

The Superbird Project is strategically located in the Smackover Formation in south-west Arkansas, an area rapidly emerging as America’s new lithium super-highway. This region is known for its high-grade brine formations and is home to several key players in the lithium brine exploration and production industry, including Exxon Mobil (NYSE: XOM), Standard Lithium (NYSE: SLI), Tetra Technologies (NYSE: TTI), and Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB).

A Future-Forward Step

This expansion and acquisition mark a significant step forward for Pantera Minerals in consolidating its position in the lithium market. The Superbird Project's strategic location and increased land holdings position the company to capitalize on the growing demand for lithium, a critical component in the renewable energy and electric vehicle sectors.

Commenting on the increase in acreage, CEO Matt Hansen:

“In a competitive leasing environment, the leasing approach of the Superbird Project continues to remain effective, now surpassing 12,000 acres. Adding another 1,724 acres is a positive step for the project, leveraging the project’s exclusive 50,000-acre abstract agreement.”

Action, not apologies required following Callide explosion report: MEU

Workers at Queensland’s Callide power station are calling for action, not apologies after a long awaited report revealed that CS Energy did not value safety in the lead up to a catastrophic explosion in 2021.
