Ottawa, ON, June 22, 2023 – Stria Lithium Inc. (TSX-V: SRA) (“Stria” or the “Company”) announces today it has received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”) to extend the date of 5,200,000 warrants all of which are exercisable at $0.50 per common shares (the “Warrants”). The extension of the expiry date of the Warrants by an additional 24 months was approved. The Warrants were issued as part of a private placement which closed on June 24, 2021, and accordingly the new expiry date for the Warrants is June 24, 2025. All other terms of the Warrants remain unchanged.
A total of 740,000 Warrants are held by “related parties” to the Company. Therefore, the amendment of the expiry date of the Warrants constitutes a “related party transaction” pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). However, the exemption from formal valuation and minority approval requirement found at section 5.5 and 5.7 of MI 61-101 will be relied on as the fair market value of the Warrants does not exceed 25% of the market cap of the company.
About Stria Lithium
Stria Lithium (TSX-V: SRA) is an emerging resource exploration company developing Canadian lithium reserves to meet legislated demand for electric vehicles and their rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.
Lithium is a rare metal and an indispensable component of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, one of the safest and most efficient energy storage technologies available today, used in everything from cellphones and power tools to electric cars and industrial-scale energy storage for renewable power sources such as wind and solar generation.
Stria’s Central Pontax Lithium Project covers 36 square kilometres, including 8 kilometres of strike along the prospective Chambois Greenstone Belt. Stria’s Pontax II covers 55 square kilometres. The region, known as the Canadian “Lithium Triangle,” is one of only a few known sources of lithium available for hard rock mining in North America.
Stria’s Pontax property is situated close to an industrial powerline and a major paved highway, about 310 km north of the North American rail network that leads to the industrial heartland.
As momentum builds for the green energy revolution and the shift to electric vehicles, governments in Canada and the U.S. are aggressively supporting the North American lithium industry, presenting the industry and its investors with a rare, if not unprecedented, opportunity for growth and prosperity well into the next decade and beyond.
Cygnus Metals is committed to fully funding and managing the current two-stage exploration and drilling program to a maximum of $10 million at Stria’s Pontax property, and will also pay Stria up to $6 million in cash. In return, Cygnus may acquire up to a 70% interest in the property.
Stria is committed to exceeding the industry’s environmental, social and governance standards. A critical part of that commitment is forging meaningful, enduring and mutually beneficial relationships with the James Bay Cree Nation (Eeyouch), and engaging openly and respectfully as neighbours and collaborators in this exciting project that has the potential to create lasting jobs and prosperity for Eeyou Istchee and its people.
