Market capitalisation


Lithium Power International’s main asset is its 100% interest in the Maricunga lithium brine project in Chile; subject to funding, stage 1 is expected to produce 15.2ktpa of high-grade lithium carbonate from 2026. It sold its lithium assets in Western Australia to Albemarle in July 2023.

While the Australian assets were excluded from our valuation of LPI due to their early (pre-resource) stage of development, we believe the sale is positive for LPI as it allows the company to significantly extend its cash runaway without further diluting its shareholders.
