Lithium in Brine vs. Lithium in Clay/RockLithium Brine Albemarle’s Silver Peak mine is onlylithium mine in US, operating since1966.Solar evaporation in ponds over 1824 months increases concentrationof lithium chloride prior toprocessing into lithium carbonate.Cheaper processing costs but lowerrecovery %s.Requires placer mining claims andsignificant water rightsRequires significant quicklimeconsumptionNewer technologies may notrequire same timeframe orconsumptive water use17 other playa basins in Nevadabeing exploredLithium in Clay/Hard Rock No current mines, but 3 projectsare in various stages ofpermitting:– Thacker Pass, Humboldt Cty– Rhyolite Ridge, Esmeralda Cty– TLC Project, Nye Cty Resources typically very largewith long mine-life Processing is more expensive butyields higher recovery %s Requires location of lode miningclaims Much less water consumption buthigh sulfuric acid consumption Many additional explorationprojects

NEVADA MINING CLAIMS 208,109 Active Mining Claims(Assessment Year 2021) inNevada as of 12/28/2020 Increase of 1.7% fromOctober 2019 50% of all US mining claims Claims are 20 acres in size Annual maintenancepayments of 165/claim toBLM and 12/claim to countyrecorder 34M to BLM 2.6M to Nevada counties

35 minerals identified as “CriticalMinerals” by D.O.I. in May, 2018. Minerals selected are deemed “vitalto the Nation's security andeconomic prosperity.” Nevada contains known occurrencesor deposits of 20 of the 35 criticalminerals 2 Exploration for cobalt, graphite, REE,Tungsten, Vanadium in progress.

TRENDS & PREDICTIONS Metals mining is increasingly underground, 30% now. Copper is #2 in gross value and increasing Limitation is lack of downstream smelting and refining Electric vehicles vs. gas require 5-8X more copper Industrial mineral production in NV likely to increase as it iseasier to put into operation than in other western states Increase in # of projects being permitted largely due to increasedgold price but also in relation to increased demand forcommodities needed for renewable energy and batteries (Co, Li,Ni, V, Zn) If one or more Li clay project progresses, NV will produce 10% ofworld production, would then expect vertical integration with acathode plant built in NV. Increasing geothermal energy production Escalation in investor interest on the value of environmental,social and corporate governance (ESG)
