A GREEN FUTURE
Edison key facts
- We completed the acquisition of Resource Ventures S.A. (“ReVe”), an Argentina corporation that owns or controls the rights to over 148,000 hectares (365,708 acres) of prospective lithium brine claims in the province of Catamarca, Argentina.
- The claims are principally located in the two geological basins known as the Antofalla Salar and the Pipanaco Salar in South America’s famed Lithium Triangle.
- The Property hosts brines containing elevated concentrations of lithium (“Li”), potassium (“K”), and boron (“B”).
- In late 2017, we acquired an additional 100% interest in 10 unpatented mining claims totaling 140 units, approximately 2,240 hectares.
- Eight new claims are contiguous to the Kittson Property, interpreted to host the western extension of the Shakt-Davis and Edison mine structures.
- Two new claims 5 km south of the Kittson property cover a cobalt showing that returned up to 0.14% Cobalt and 0.68 g/t gold.
- Acquired the Historic Thomas Edison Mine in May/18, that was developed by Thomas Edison in the early 1900s.
- Kittson Property consists of 216 unpatented claims and 1 patented claim totaling 4,440 hectares.

Salar de Antofalla (“Antofalla”)
Located less than 20 km west of Livent’s lithium-producing operation in northern Catamarca Province, the Antofalla Salar hosts one of the largest lithium-bearing basins in the region. It is over 130 km long and varies between 5 km and 20 km across.
ReVe’s assets in and around the Antofalla Salar are made up of approximately 107,000 hectares (264,397 acres) of semi-contiguous claims in the northern and southern parts of this salar, offsetting either side of Albermarle’s holdings in the center of this salar.
ReVe’s claims in the Pipanaco Salar consist of over 41,000 hectares (101,311 acres) of core areas in this salar, which is located approximately 50 km due west of Catamarca city.
