American Lithium Files Semi-Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment Study to Start Falchani Mine Permitting Process Ahead of Schedule


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Lithium Corp. ("American Lithium" or the "Company") (TSX-V:LI | Nasdaq:AMLI | Frankfurt:5LA1) is pleased to announce that it has now completed and submitted the Semi-Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment Study ("EIA-sd") for the Falchani Lithium Project in Southern Peru ("Falchani") to the Ministry of Energy and Mines ("MINEM"). The EIA-sd commenced in July 2022 with SRK Peru leading the process and EDASI SAC providing environmental services including detailed hydrological / hydrogeological studies at Falchani. The filing of the EIA-sd was achieved ahead of schedule. With the filing acknowledged by MINEM, regulatory approval for the EIA-sd is anticipated in the coming months. It is expected that the Final EIA Study, which will enable construction and production at Falchani, will be filed and approved following the completion of the Pre-Feasibility Study ("PFS") and following submission and approval of detailed plans for mining and processing.

Highlights of EIA-sd:

Simon Clarke, CEO of American Lithium states, "This is another major milestone for American Lithium. The EIA process was launched during the prior Government at a difficult time for permitting in Peru and it is a testament to the hard work of our Peru team that we were able to advance the Falchani Project in such a material way. I would also acknowledge the support of the new authorities in Peru in helping us fast-track this process with the common goal of seeing lithium production in the country as quickly as reasonably possible. With this approval, we will now be able to complete our PFS and move rapidly into the mine permitting process."
