Neo Lithium Corp. has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, LIEX S.A., has received a Declaracion de Impacto Ambiental (DIA) from the Environmental and Mining Authority in Catamarca Province, Argentina.

The DIA represents the Environmental and Mining Authority's approval of LIEX’s Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for construction and operation of the mine, as set out in the feasibility study for its wholly-owned Tres Quebradas lithium brine project (3Q Project), which was announced on 26 October 2021 and described in the technical report filed on 25 November 2021. The DIA is the main environmental approval document required for the construction and operation of mining projects in Catamarca Province.

The issuance of the DIA confirms that the EIA is in compliance with the standards and regulations under the national and provincial mining law and contains customary requirements to maintain the DIA in good standing. As part of the issuance of the DIA, the company agreed with Catamarca Province to fund an infrastructure trust to be administered for the benefit of the 3Q Project and its impacted areas.
