BELO HORIZONTE, BRAZIL, Oct. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atlas Lithium Corporation (OTCQB: ATLX) (“Atlas Lithium” or the “Company”), a mineral exploration company focused on lithium and other battery metals critical to powering the green energy revolution, has engaged international investor relations specialists MZ Group (“MZ”) to lead a comprehensive strategic investor relations and financial communications program across all key markets.
MZ Group will work closely with Atlas Lithium management to develop and implement a comprehensive capital markets strategy designed to increase the Company’s visibility throughout the investment community. The campaign will highlight Atlas Lithium’s leadership in the provisioning of lithium, an essential mineral for use in electric vehicles (EV) and the transformation of the global economy from fossil fuels to electrification. The Company’s 100% owned hard-rock mineral properties have the largest footprint (293 sq. km.) of lithium areas in Brazil among any public or private companies. Brazil is well-known for premier deposits of hard-rock lithium.
MZ has developed a distinguished reputation as a premier resource for institutional investors, brokers, analysts, and private investors and maintains offices worldwide. Brooks Hamilton, Director at MZ North America, will advise Atlas Lithium’s IR team in all facets of investor relations including the coordination of roadshows and investment conferences across key cities and building brand awareness with financial and social media outlets.
Greg Falesnik, CEO of MZ North America, commented: “Atlas Lithium is uniquely positioned to benefit from the accelerating generational transition to renewable energy. As global sales of EVs continue to expand, aided by new legislation such as the US Inflation Reduction Act that create tax credit incentives for millions of consumers and businesses to switch to EVs, battery manufacturers are working to secure lithium supply.”
“Atlas Lithium’s largest endeavor, its Minas Gerais Lithium Project, encompasses 52 mineral rights (227 sq. km.) in a well-known district for hard-rock lithium, and drilling to date has indicated several high-quality deposits across the property with initial reported results showcasing potential for commercial-grade lithium concentrate production. The Company’s wholly owned metals exploration portfolio also contains mineral rights for almost all battery metals including nickel, rare earths, titanium, and graphite. In sum, Atlas Lithium has developed a portfolio of compelling mineral opportunities to power the sustainable energy revolution, and we look forward to sharing this with the global investment community,” concluded Falesnik.
“Our flagship Minas Gerais Lithium Project is progressing well and within schedule. Currently, we are drilling the Neves Area which is a specific part of the Project,” said Marc Fogassa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Atlas Lithium. “SLR International Corporation (SLR), a premier independent mineral resource evaluation firm, recently authored a preliminary technical report on our Neves Area showcasing its favorable geology for lithium and its potential. Additionally, an initial metallurgical study at SGS-Geosol, a first-tier independent analytical laboratory, has shown ease in recovery of lithium concentrate from samples obtained at our Neves Area.”
“Our geological and metallurgical teams are working closely with counterpart experts from SLR to produce our maiden resource report, followed by a preliminary feasibility study, as we work toward our revenue-generating goal of entering lithium concentrate production. We look forward to working with the entire team at MZ Group to communicate the potential of our lithium and other battery metals business as we work to build sustainable value for our shareholders,” added Fogassa.
