About Nemaska

Nemaska intends to become a lithium hydroxide/carbonate producer based in Quebec and has filed patent applications for its proprietary methods to produce lithium hydroxide and lithium carbonate. In tandem, the Company is developing one of the richest spodumene lithium hard rock deposit in the world, both in volume and grade. Spodumene concentrate produced at Nemaska's Whabouchi mine and from other global sources will be shipped to the Company's lithium hydroxide/carbonate processing plant located in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec. This plant will transform spodumene concentrate into high purity lithium hydroxide and lithium carbonate for the growing lithium battery market. The Nemaska's Whabouchi deposit, located in the James Bay Region in the Province of Quebec, Canada, near the Cree community of Nemaska, should have an initial mine life of 18 years.
