Highlights during and subsequent to the quarter were:Hatch continues to progress its work on the chemical plant pre-feasibility study (“PFS”) for the Company’s Piedmont Lithium Project (“Project”) in the United States and remains on track for delivery in Q2 2020. The chemical plant PFS will provide refined estimates of our capital and operating costs and should reinforce our position as a low-cost US-based producer of lithium hydroxide.Lithium hydroxide testwork on samples of spodumene concentrate produced from the Project’s ore is progressing SGS laboratories in Canada. Work has been delayed due to impacts related to COVID-19, however the delay is not expected to impact our overall development timeline. The final process flowsheet has been determined samples will soon be ready for delivery to prospective customers.Chemical plant permitting activities continue, with background studies to be used in the chemical plant permit applications proceeding on schedule. We plan to submit these permit applications shortly after completion of the chemical plant PFS and expect to receive these permits by the end of 2020.Continued numerous preliminary off-take, financing and strategic conversations, including companies from the lithium, mining, chemicals, battery, automotive and private equity sectors.Soil and rock chip sampling at the Project in North Carolina, United States, led to the discovery of five new spodumene-bearing pegmatites in areas that have not previously been explored.Assays from the final 19 drill holes of the Phase 4 drilling program at the Project’s Central and Core properties intersected significant mineralization, including 36.0m @ 1.11% Li2O and 44.9m @ 1.30% Li2O in Hole 19-CT-19, 13.0m @ 1.28% Li2O and 7.3m @ 1.37% Li2O in Hole 19-CT-26, and 14.8m @ 1.55% Li2O and 12.4m @ 1.02% Li2O in Hole 19-BD-332.Next steps:Complete the chemical plant PFS and a fully integrated Scoping Study Update in Q2 2020.Finalize the bench scale lithium hydroxide testwork program and produce initial product samples in Q2 2020.Submit key chemical plant permit applications including a synthetic minor source air permit application.Build out project construction and sales & marketing teams.Continue offtake discussions for lithium hydroxide and by-product quartz, feldspar and mica.Continue to evaluate strategic partnering options.For further information, contact:Keith D.

 Project OverviewPiedmont Lithium Limited (ASX: PLL; NASDAQ: PLL) holds a 100% interest in the Piedmont Lithium Project located within the TSB and along trend to the Hallman Beam and Kings Mountain mines, which historically provided most of the western world’s lithium between the 1950s and the 1980s. The TSB has been described as one of the largest lithium regions in the world and is located approximately 25 miles west of Charlotte, North Carolina.In August 2019 the Company published an expanded Scoping Study for an integrated lithium hydroxide business, which featured a 25-year project life, NPV8 of US$1.45 billion, a US$3,105 per tonne lithium hydroxide cash operating cost, and a US$199 per tonne spodumene concentrate cash operating cost.  Figure 1: Piedmont Lithium Project located within the TSB    2 
 

 Chemical Plant StudyDuring the quarter, Hatch continued to progress its work on the chemical plant PFS and remains on track for delivery in Q2 2020. The chemical plant PFS will provide refined estimates of our capital and operating costs and should reinforce our position as a low-cost US-based producer of lithium hydroxide.Hatch is a global leader in the development of lithium conversion projects with notable experience including the full EPCM delivery of the Galaxy/Tianqi (Jiangsu) lithium conversion plant in China, the current detailed design engineering for two other spodumene to hydroxide plants, and of one brine conversion plant, in varied locations. Hatch has also studied lithium chemical projects for Mineral Resources (Australia), Kidman/Covalent (Australia), Desert Lion (Namibia), Savannah Resources (Portugal), among many others.During the quarter Hatch finalized process flowsheet design for the planned 22,700 t/y lithium hydroxide chemical plant. Additionally, the site plan based on Piedmont’s Kings Mountain property has been completed to a PFS level. Capital and operating costs have been concluded and final report drafting is underway.  Figure 2: Piedmont’s Lithium Hydroxide Chemical Plant located in Kings Mountain, NCPiedmont’s chemical plant PFS economics will be based on the concept of a merchant chemical business purchasing spodumene concentrate from the open market. The merchant chemical plant PFS is expected to highlight the compelling advantages of locating lithium chemical production in the south-eastern United States, and will underscore the potential for Piedmont to expand its business longer-term by pursuing a merchant conversion strategy as an adjunct to its core integrated business. Most of the world’s spodumene production is currently upgraded to lithium chemicals by third-party Chinese converters, and we believe Piedmont’s chemical plant may become an attractive alternative to the Chinese for other spodumene producers.The chemical plant PFS will be accompanied by a Scoping Study Update (“SSU”) for the fully-integrated Piedmont Lithium Project. The SSU will incorporate the capital cost, operating cost, and ramp-up outcomes from the chemical plant PFS, along with the PFS-level engineering estimates that were completed for the mine/concentrator in 2019.Importantly, the SSU will consider the economics of building the entire fully-integrated Piedmont Lithium Project in a single stage. This strategy was previously announced by the Company in 2019 and reflects an acceleration of the lithium chemical plant compared with prior studies.    3 
 

 Lithium Hydroxide TestworkDuring the quarter, Piedmont continued to progress its lithium hydroxide bench-scale metallurgical program at SGS laboratories in Lakefield, Ontario. Final lithium hydroxide crystallization steps are under way but have taken longer than planned due to travel restrictions and remote working practices being implemented at the SGS laboratory due to COVID-19. We do not expect this extended completion of testwork to have an impact on our other activities.The bench-scale program will produce lithium hydroxide (“LiOH”) samples for delivery to prospective offtake partners. The flowsheet developed during this testwork program has been finalized and serves as the basis of the chemical plant PFS to be completed in Q2 2020. Figure 3 outlines the optimized testwork flowsheet currently underway with SGS.  Figure 3: Piedmont’s Lithium Hydroxide Testwork Program Block Flow DiagramPiedmont has been in close communication with prospective offtake parties with respect to timing of availability of hydroxide samples.SGS is advancing a lithium conversion testwork program using a ‘direct-to-hydroxide’ approach developed in collaboration with Piedmont Lithium personnel and engineering consultants Hatch and Primero Group. Piedmont previously announced outstanding PFS-level metallurgical results for the production of spodumene concentrate (see press release dated July 16, 2019). The concentrate produced during that program and other spodumene concentrate produced from the same composite sample is now being used by SGS for the ongoing bench-scale lithium hydroxide testwork.PermittingDuring the quarter, Piedmont continued to advance background studies related to the permitting of the planned lithium hydroxide chemical plant in Kings Mountain, NC. Air permitting has been identified as the expected long-lead permit for the chemical plant. Emissions estimates completed during the chemical plant PFS continue to support the Company’s intent to apply for a synthetic minor source permit under the Clean Air Act Title V program. The Company expect to apply for and receive the air permit and other key permits required for construction of the lithium chemical plant by the end of 2020.    4 
 

 DrillingAssays from the final 19 drill holes of the Phase 4 drilling program at our Central and Core properties intersected significant mineralization, including    36.0m @ 1.11% Li2O and 44.9m @ 1.30% Li2O in Hole 19-CT-19;13.0m @ 1.28% Li2O and 7.3m @ 1.37% Li2O in Hole 19-CT-26; and 14.8m @ 1.55% Li2O and 12.4m @ 1.02% Li2O in Hole 19-BD-332.  These drill results continue to expand the extent of mineralization on both properties. At Central, mineralization has been extended laterally, to the southwest, and down dip. At the Core property, 5 of the 7 holes confirmed a significant new flat lying pegmatite in the southwest portion of the property.Additionally, Piedmont has undertaken soil sampling over the past year which has proved to be a valuable exploration tool within the TSB. This year’s soil sampling program followed by rock chip sampling has led to the discovery of five new spodumene-bearing pegmatites on Piedmont exploration properties. The regional data continues to highlight the overall size and continuity of the Carolina TSB and its importance as a domestic source for the critical element, lithium.  Figure 4: TSB Map showing Piedmont MRE, New Pegmatite Discoveries, and Historical Mines and DataFinally, recent XRD analysis from two composite samples, one from Core and one from Central, continue to identify spodumene as the only lithium bearing mineral identified.    5 
 

 CorporateDuring the quarter, Piedmont continued preliminary off-take, financing, and strategic conversations with numerous parties from the lithium, mining, chemicals, battery, automotive and private equity sectors.Piedmont also advanced conversations with several experienced lithium professionals with the aim of building out the Company’s capabilities in construction, processing and marketing following the release of our PFS. The depth of lithium chemical expertise in North Carolina is unparalleled in the English-speaking world, and we believe we will continue to attract talented individuals to join our entrepreneurial team.Piedmont finished the quarter with a cash balance of US$9.0 million (A$14.5 million), sufficient to fund activities for four quarters at the current rate, and longer if the Company chooses to advance the project more gradually in the event of a prolonged market downturn.During the quarter, Mr Anastasios (Taso) Arima stepped down as Executive Director of the Company to focus on his other business interests. Mr Arima remains as a Non-Executive Director of the Company.Mining TenementsAs at March 31, 2020, the Project comprised approximately 2,130 acres, of which the Group owns approximately 370 acres of freehold land and associated mineral rights and has entered into exclusive option agreements with local landowners, which upon exercise, allow the Group to purchase (or in some cases long- term lease) approximately 1,760 acres of surface property and the associated mineral rights from the private landowners.During the quarter the Company purchased approximately 307 acres of surface property (and associated mineral rights) upon exercising existing option agreements. The Company did not enter into any additional option agreements with local landowners during the quarter. The Company relinquished approximately 164 acres of land options during the quarter, following a determination by the Company that these properties were unlikely to have significant mineralization potential.In addition, the Company also owns a property in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, comprising approximately 61 acres.Related Party PaymentsDuring the quarter, the Company made payments of approximately $143,000 to related parties and their associates. These payments relate to executive directors’ remuneration, non-executive directors’ fees, employer 401(k) contributions, superannuation contributions, and fees for services in relation to business development activities.  6
