With a positive earnings update and significant investment from Albemarle, Patriot Battery Metals sets its 2023 vision with expansive exploration campaigns.

Canada's lithium developer, Patriot Battery Metals (TSXV: PMET) (ASX: PMT) (OTCQX: PMETF), released its Q1 earnings on August 7, 2023.

During Q1, ending June 30, 2023, Patriot Battery Metals Inc. announced a net loss of C$0.186 million, showing a significant improvement from the C$3.86 million loss reported in Q1, 2022.

This earnings update comes a few days after Albemarle (NYSE: ALB), the world's largest lithium producer, invested C$109 million ($82.6 million) in Patriot Battery Metals to secure a stake in the company.

Albemarle’s strategic acquisition came on the back of Patriot Battery Metals revealing its Corvette resource, which is now recognized as the largest hard rock lithium deposit in the Americas. Its Corvette property hosts the CV5 Spodumene Pegmatite, the largest lithium pegmatite in the Americas, and 8th largest globally. It also hosts multiple other spodumene pegmatite clusters that remain to be drill tested.

Albemarle will now own up to 6.4% of Patriot's Common Shares, with the funds earmarked for the Corvette Lithium Project development and corporate needs; the two companies also initiated agreements on future equity capital involvement and potential partnership opportunities for a lithium hydroxide plant in North America.

Patriot's Chief Executive, Blair Way, emphasized the significance of the investment, stating, "The additional funding will allow us to more aggressively advance the Corvette Property through drilling, permitting, study work and more."

A pivotal driver behind Albemarle's investment is its intention to strengthen the supply of lithium, a critical component for electric vehicle batteries, especially as the company looks to capitalize on the expanding U.S. automobile market.

Looking ahead to its forthcoming financial year, Patriot Battery Metals has outlined its strategies to bolster its position in the industry. The plan underscores the company's intention to file an NI 43-101 Technical Report and promptly resume the 2023 exploration campaign. In tandem with this, the firm intends to delve deeper into exploration efforts, emphasizing advancements related to the CV5 Spodumene Pegmatite. Infrastructure is also a focal point, with initiatives set to transform specific winter roads into an all-season road and continuing surface exploration. Furthermore, Patriot Battery Metals aims to establish an 80-person exploration camp and has set its sights on joining the ranks of the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), contingent upon approval and criteria fulfillment.

Last month Patriot Battery Metals quashed rumors that it was considering a sale. The company remains committed to its vision of becoming a leading lithium producer in the Americas, leveraging its Corvette resource and strategic partnerships to meet the increasing global demand for electric vehicle battery materials.

The GOLD Prodigy Backing Eureka 

While the big-cap investments may be enticing, there's a world of opportunity in uncovering emerging small-cap players with tremendous growth potential.

Eureka Lithium, a mining company listed on the CSE, is one such small-cap stock potentially poised for exceptional growth with a captivating story to tell.

With Canada’s most famous prospector advising the CEO, this exciting company has a significant advantage in the field.

Joining forces with Eureka Lithium, Shawn Ryan, whose past successes in unearthing gold deposits have earned him a slew of industry awards and a reputable standing in the sector, is now pivoting towards lithium. Leveraging his extensive expertise in exploration, he is focusing on the under-explored region of Nunavik, Quebec, aiming to unlock its promising lithium reserves. 

As the electric vehicle industry surges, the demand for lithium—an essential component in electric vehicle batteries—follows suit. This has sparked a global interest in lithium mining, leading even traditional oil companies like ExxonMobil to seek lithium reserves and test extraction technologies.

A report released earlier this year by Li-Bridge suggested that global demand for lithium-ion batteries will increase five-fold by 2030. As such, it's no surprise that Mckinsey has projected that demand for lithium carbonate equivalent will rocket from 500,000 metric tonnes to as much as 4 million between 2021 and 2030. 

That’s why Lithium looks like THE opportunity for this decade.

It’s also why Ryan's move is a strategic and timely response to the shifting landscape of the mining industry. Now, he aims to replicate his prior success while contributing to the growing renewable energy market.

If you're tired of sticking to the popular market leaders, it might be worth taking a closer look at an under-the-radar gem with significant upside potential like Eureka Lithium.
