VANCOUVER, BC, Feb. 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — February 1, 2024 – SYDNEY, Australia
Patriot Battery Metals Inc. (the “Company” or “Patriot”) (TSXV: PMET) (ASX: PMT) (OTCQB: PMETF) (FSE: R9GA) is pleased to announce that it has received final approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX“) to list its common shares (the “Common Shares“) effective upon market open on Thursday, February 1, 2024. The Common Shares will trade under its current symbol “PMET”. No action is required by Patriot shareholders.
The Company applied for the graduation from the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“) to the TSX with a view to accessing further institutional capital and investors, enhancing the trading liquidity of the Company and increasing the Company’s visibility and reputation as an issuer on a senior exchange.
“This is an important milestone for Patriot, as we heighten our corporate profile and reach a broader range of investors,” said Ken Brinsden, CEO and President of Patriot. “The scale emerging at our Corvette Project, presentation of the Project Description to the CREE and Quebec government, combined with Patriot being one of the very few lithium companies to graduate to the TSX demonstrates our maturing profile.”
In connection with the listing on the TSX, the Common Shares will no longer trade on the TSXV after the market close on January 31, 2024. Both the TSX and TSXV will issue bulletins announcing the change prior to the effective date of the change.
Patriot Battery Metals Inc. is a hard-rock lithium exploration company focused on advancing its district-scale 100% owned Corvette Property located in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay region of Quebec, Canada, and proximal to regional road and powerline infrastructure. The Corvette Property hosts the CV5 Spodumene Pegmatite with a maiden mineral resource estimate of 109.2 Mt at 1.42% Li2O inferred1 and ranks as the largest lithium pegmatite resource in the Americas based on contained lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE), and one of the top 10 largest lithium pegmatite resources in the world. Additionally, the Corvette Property hosts multiple other spodumene pegmatite clusters that remain to be drill tested, as well as more than 20 km of prospective trend that remain to be assessed.
1 The CV5 mineral resource estimate (109.2 Mt at 1.42% Li2O and 160 ppm Ta2O5 inferred) is reported at a cut-off grade of 0.40% Li2O with effective date of June 25, 2023 (through drill hole CV23-190). Mineral resources are not mineral reserves as they do not have demonstrated economic viability.
