Further important aspects that will be covered in this report are: i) review of the Li3 Energy position in terms of its ability to develop the project; ii) development of a position analysis of Li3’s Maricunga project with other lithium brine projects; iii) identification of the principal strengths and weaknesses of the Maricunga project; and iv) Maricunga’s potential synergies with Li3’s Alfredo project and its strategy to become a diversified, low-cost minerals producer Luis Saenz, Li3 Energy CEO, commented: "We are pleased to have a firm with the prestige of SignumBOX reviewing our project. Independent analysis is always very important at this critical stage of development, and we are confident it will demonstrate the robust nature of an asset we believe to have world-class potential and help us in taking the correct steps going forward."
