ASX RELEASE | July 30, 2020 | ASX:PLL; NASDAQ:PLL


JUNE 2020 QUARTERLY REPORT

Piedmont Lithium Limited (ASX: PLL; NASDAQ: PLL) (“Piedmont” or “Company”) is pleased to present its June 2020 quarterly report. Highlights during and subsequent to the quarter were:


Completed a pre-feasibility study (“PFS”) for Piedmont’s proposed lithium hydroxide chemical plant (“Chemical Plant”) in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, USA. The PFS highlighted a business model where a Piedmont built and owned Chemical Plant would convert spodumene concentrate purchased on the global market to battery-grade lithium hydroxide.
Completed an updated scoping study for Piedmont’s integrated mine-to-hydroxide project. The mine-to-hydroxide project comprises a mine and concentrator producing spodumene concentrate which will be transported to Piedmont’s Chemical Plant and converted into battery-grade lithium hydroxide.  The updated scoping study includes the results of the new Chemical Plant PFS.
Completed additional metallurgical testwork to produce 120 kilograms of spodumene concentrate from core samples collected from the Piedmont Lithium Project.  Concentrate qualities and recoveries were consistent with earlier testwork programs.
Completed a bench-scale lithium hydroxide testwork program at SGS Canada, Inc. in Lakefield, Ontario which demonstrated conversion of Piedmont ore to battery-quality lithium hydroxide.
Entered into a memorandum of understanding (“MOU”) with Primero Group (“Primero”) for the delivery of Piedmont’s planned spodumene concentrator on an engineer, procure, and construct (“EPC”) basis, with Primero to contract operate the spodumene concentrator for a period of up to six years following construction.
Concluded a definitive and exclusive marketing agreement for byproduct quartz, feldspar, and mica with Ion Carbon, a division of AMCI.  The Company continues to advance offtake discussions for byproducts with quartz offtake discussions the most advanced.
Appointed Mr. Austin Devaney as Vice President – Sales & Marketing. Mr. Devaney spent most of the past decade in senior marketing roles with Albemarle Corporation, most recently as Vice President, Strategic Marketing and Customer Excellence.
Completed a U.S. public offering of 2,065,000 of its American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”), each representing 100 of its ordinary shares, including the exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option, at an issue price of US$6.30 per ADS, to raise gross proceeds of US$13.0 million (~A$18.6 million) (“Public Offering”).
Piedmont has also received commitments from existing non-U.S. institutional and sophisticated shareholders and directors for 120,000,000 of its fully paid ordinary shares, at an issue price of A$0.09 per share (which equates to the same issue price of the Public Offering), to raise gross proceeds of A$10.8 million (“Private Placement”). Completion of the Private Placement is subject to shareholder approval.

Keith D. Philips, President and CEO of Piedmont commented “We are extremely pleased with the progress the Company has made during the quarter on advancing our 100% owned Piedmont Lithium Project.  The PFS and scoping studies both demonstrate the economic benefit of developing a lithium chemical business in North Carolina, USA given its exceptional infrastructure, low operating costs and competitive tax regime.
“We continue to build a world-class team to support the project development.  The appointment of Austin Devaney, one of the world’s most experienced lithium marketing professionals, significantly improves the Company’s lithium marketing experience. Primero’s extensive skill set in the construction and operation of spodumene concentrate plants adds considerable technical experience and de-risks that aspect of our project.
“Piedmont’s robust balance sheet provides the ability for the company to continue to progress the development the Kings Mountain site.  We will be actively working on a Definitive Feasibility Study in coming months and I look forward to updating the market in due course”

Project Overview
Piedmont Lithium Limited (ASX: PLL; Nasdaq: PLL) holds a 100% interest in the Piedmont Lithium Project, a pre-production business targeting the manufacturing of 22,700 tonnes per year (“t/y”) of battery quality lithium hydroxide in North Carolina, USA to support electric vehicle and battery supply chains in the United States and globally.  Piedmont’s premier southeastern USA location is advantaged by favorable geology, proven metallurgy and easy access to infrastructure, power, R&D centers for lithium and battery storage, major high-tech population centers and downstream lithium processing facilities.
Piedmont has reported 27.9 million tonnes (“Mt”) of Mineral Resources grading at 1.11% Li2O located within the world-class Carolina Tin-Spodumene Belt (“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 provinces in the world and is located approximately 25 miles west of Charlotte, North Carolina.

Technical Studies
During the quarter, we reported the results of a pre-feasibility study (‘‘PFS’’) for our proposed lithium hydroxide chemical plant (‘‘Chemical Plant’’) in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, together with the results of an updated scoping study for our proposed integrated mine-to-hydroxide project comprising our proposed Chemical Plant that will produce battery-grade lithium hydroxide from spodumene concentrate produced at our mine/concentrator.
The PFS and Scoping Study confirm the potential for Piedmont to be a strategic and low-cost producer of battery-grade lithium hydroxide. Our proposed Chemical Plant would create an alternative to the numerous merchant spodumene converters currently operating in China and dominating the world lithium hydroxide market, thus providing U.S. and non-U.S. automotive companies a secure and independent American source of the lithium hydroxide required for their supply chains.

Chemical Plant PFS
The Chemical Plant PFS featured a lithium hydroxide conversion plant to be supplied by spodumene concentrate purchased on the global market, rather than by Piedmont’s own Mine/Concentrator.  This Chemical Plant would compete against the numerous merchant spodumene converters currently operating in China, providing US and European automotive companies a secure and independent American source of the lithium hydroxide required for their supply chains.
The Chemical Plant will provide the growing number of spodumene concentrate producers in Australia, North America, South America, Europe and Africa an alternative non-Chinese processing route for their material for the first time.  Piedmont is actively engaged with several such parties and is progressing the securing of feed material for the plant.
Table 1 highlights the key economic outcomes of the Chemical Plant PFS.

Integrated Scoping Study

The integrated scoping study update included a steady-state 22,720 t/y lithium hydroxide Chemical Plant supported by a Mine/Concentrator producing 160,000 t/y of 6% Li2O spodumene concentrate. By-products quartz, feldspar, and mica will provide credits to the cost of lithium production.  The integrated scoping study update features:

25-year project life with Mine/Concentrator and Chemical Plant constructed in a single phase
1st quartile operating costs
Lithium hydroxide cash costs of US$3,712/t (AISC of US$4,209/t)
Spodumene concentrate cash costs of US$201/t (AISC of US$240/t)
Exceptional project economics
NPV8 of US$1.1B
After-tax IRR of 26%
Steady-state annual average EBITDA of US$218M

Byproduct Marketing Agreement
Subsequent to the end of the quarter, Piedmont and Ion Carbon & Minerals, LLC (“Ion”), a division of AMCI Group, executed definitive agreements for the sales and marketing of the mineral by-products to be produced from Piedmont’s proposed lithium mine in North Carolina, USA.
Piedmont and Ion have formed a joint venture company, called Pronto Minerals, LLC (“Pronto”), which will serve as the exclusive sales and marketing agent for quartz, feldspar, and mica produced from the Piedmont Lithium Project for an initial five-year term. The Pronto team will report to Austin Devaney, Piedmont’s recently appointed Vice President of Sales & Marketing.
Ion has engaged in preliminary mineral product sales discussions with North American customers under a letter-of-intent signed between Piedmont and Ion in October 2019.  Pronto will now take these discussions forward.  Potential sales discussions are ongoing with quartz sales the most advanced.  Multiple quartz product samples have been delivered to solar glass manufacturers with facilities in the eastern United States.  These samples have been favorably received and Pronto will work towards offtake commitments from these potential customers in the coming months.
Feldspar and mica samples have also been produced in partnership with SGS Canada, Inc. in Lakefield, Ontario.  Pronto has identified regional customers that will receive samples of these products in the coming months.
Permitting
In June 2020, the Company submitted an Air Quality permit application for construction and operations of its proposed 22,700 t/y lithium hydroxide chemical plant in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, USA to the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality’s (NCDEQ) Division of Air Quality (DAQ).  DAQ is the lead agency that will review and approve the Company’s air permit application.  The Company has applied for a synthetic minor facility classification under the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA) Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) preconstruction permit and Title V operating permit programs.
The application was submitted following completion of air toxics emissions modelling based on data from the Company’s recently completed chemical plant prefeasibility study.  HDR Engineering acted as lead consultant in preparation of the application.
Corporate
During the quarter, Piedmont completed a U.S. public offering of 2,065,000 of its American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”), each representing 100 of its ordinary shares, including the exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option, at an issue price of US$6.30 per ADS, to raise gross proceeds of US$13.0 million (~A$18.6 million) (“Public Offering”).
Piedmont has also received commitments from existing non-U.S. institutional and sophisticated shareholders and directors for 120,000,000 of its fully paid ordinary shares, at an issue price of A$0.09 per share (which equates to the same issue price of the Public Offering), to raise gross proceeds of A$10.8 million (~US$7.4 million) (“Private Placement”). Completion of the Private Placement is subject to shareholder approval at a meeting to be held on July 31, 2020.

During 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$18.9 million (A$27.5 million), which does not include an additional US$7.4 million (A$10.8 million) to be received by the Company upon completion of the Private Placement.
During the quarter, Mr. Austin Devaney was appointed as Vice President – Sales & Marketing of Piedmont. Mr. Devaney spent most of the past decade in senior marketing roles with Albemarle Corporation, most recently as Vice President, Strategic Marketing and Customer Excellence.
Mining Properties
As at June 30, 2020, the Project comprised approximately 2,126 acres, of which the Group owns approximately 391 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 1,735 acres of surface property and the associated mineral rights from the private landowners.
During the quarter the Company purchased approximately 21 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 4 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 Payments
During the quarter, the Company made payments of approximately US$170,000 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.
