(“LiTHOS” or the “Company”) (CBOE CA: LITS), a leader in sustainable lithium production, is excited to announce recent strategic changes to its executive team to enhance operational efficiency and meet the growing demand for environmentally responsible energy solutions.

We are pleased to introduce Judson LaCapra as our new Chief Development Officer, Seth Coblentz as General Counsel and Elyssia Patterson as VP of Corporate Communications.

About the New Executives:

He has a proven track record in homeland security and renewable energy projects, and his multilingual abilities and background in international business from Georgetown University are invaluable to our global operations.
  • Seth Coblentz has over 20 years of experience counselling high-growth businesses within tightly regulated industries, including 5 years working in Frankfurt, Germany. He specializes in mergers and acquisitions, complex investment transactions, corporate structuring, and regulatory compliance. Seth received his Juris Doctorate, Cum Laude,  from the University of Miami.
  • Elyssia Patterson, MBA, brings a wealth of experience in capital markets and has been instrumental in leading companies through public listings. In her new role, she will focus on enhancing investor relations and articulating our strategic priorities to the financial community.

Current Key Developments:

  • Manufacturing Milestones: We have begun manufacturing our AcQUA™ modular field unit, and company factory acceptance testing is scheduled for July 2024.  A critical step towards deploying our innovative technology in the field at scale.
  • Leadership Enhancements: The promotions of Joe Fuqua to Chief Operating Officer and Michael Westlake to President, along with the appointment of Gabe Segal as Vice President of Strategy & Finance, are key to bolstering our operational and financial planning capabilities.

Compensation Update: Grant of RSUs and PSUs

In a prudent move to manage our cash resources effectively, the Lithos Board has approved the granting of an aggregate of 1,360,000 restricted share units (RSUs), compensating our executive officers, Independent Board Members, Advisory Board Members and strategic consultants with equity in lieu of cash. Additionally, we are pleased to announce the granting of an aggregate of 5,668,888 performance share units (PSUs), which vest as to  25% for each sale by the Company of at least USD$5,000,000. Granting RSUs and PSUs provides a strong incentive for our executives and other team members, aligning their interests with the Company’s long-term success. This approach ensures that our leadership is deeply invested in our collective success while conserving cash to support our ongoing operations and growth initiatives.

Successful Financing Closure

This funding will support LiTHOS’s continued innovation and expansion in the field of sustainable lithium extraction.

About LiTHOS

Lithos Group Ltd. is a mining technology company focused on selective extraction of aqueous minerals. The Company’s AcQUA™ technology allows lithium to be extracted from continental brine reservoirs without the need for additional freshwater or any added chemicals or reagents. Lithium is now among the world’s most in-demand metals as the world “electrifies” to reduce CO2 emissions, led by continuing growth in EV sales and the installation of hundreds of gigawatts of intermittent solar power generation capacity requiring partial battery storage solutions.

The Company’s mission is to produce sustainable lithium without evaporation ponds. AcQUA™ is LiTHOS’s patent-pending technology that spans the complete value chain from the conditioning and pre-treatment of raw brines through the DLE phase into the polishing and purification of battery-grade lithium feedstock. LiTHOS has two fully operational processing facilities: a 1,400 sq ft lab in Denver, CO, and a 50,000+ sq ft complex in Bessemer, AL. Where LiTHOS has flexible expansion options.

LiTHOS works with multiple strategic mineral resource owners, including brines from the largest Salars in Chile and Argentina and the Smackover reservoir in the Southeastern United States. Our wholly-owned subsidiary, Aqueous Resources LLC, is a US Department of Energy grant awardee and a Colorado Advanced Industries grant awardee.
