Forward Looking Statements and Information
This press release contains “forward-looking information” and “forward-looking statements” (which we refer to collectively as forward-looking information) in accordance with the provisions of applicable securities law. All statements, except statements of historical fact, are forward-looking information. Examples of forward-looking information in this press release include: the expected transition of the Company from developer to operator, assuming the successful development of the Caucharí-Olaroz and Thacker Pass projects; completion of construction and commencement of production on such projects; and the Company’s ability to successfully finance the development of the Thacker Pass project.

Forward-looking information may involve known and unknown risks, assumptions, and uncertainties that may cause actual results or company performance to differ materially. This information reflects the current views of the Company with respect to future events and is necessarily based on a series of assumptions that, although considered reasonable by the Company at the present time, are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies. These assumptions include, but are not limited to, the ability of the company to finance, advance and develop the projects in which it has an interest for commercial production, including obtaining additional financing as necessary; maintaining a positive business relationship with project partners (including projects under joint ownership agreements); uncertainties related to the receipt and maintenance of mining, exploration, environmental and other permits or approvals in Nevada and Argentina; exploration, development and construction costs of the Caucharí-Olaroz and Thacker Pass projects; the accuracy of mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates, and of development budgets and construction estimates; reliability of technical data; anticipated schedule and results of exploration, development and construction activities, including the impact of COVID-19 on said schedule; timely responses from government agencies responsible for reviewing and considering permitting activities; the anticipated demand for lithium, including the fact that such demand is supported by the growth of the electric vehicle market; the impact of increasing competition in the lithium business and LAC’s competitive position in the industry; the outcome and impact of any litigation; general economic conditions; a stable and supportive legislative, regulatory and community environment in the jurisdictions where the Company operates; the impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s business in general, including issues affecting supply chains in general; the expected benefits of previous transactions; and preparation of a development plan and feasibility study for lithium production at the Thacker Pass project.

Forward-looking information also involves known and unknown risks that may cause actual results to differ materially. These risks include, among others, risks inherent to the development of capital-intensive mining projects (including as co-owners); variations in mineral resources and mineral reserves; global demand for lithium; lithium recovery rates and prices; risks associated with successfully obtaining adequate financing; changes in the parameters of the project and its financing; risks related to the growth of lithium markets and the prices of its products; changes in legislation, government or community policy; political risk associated with foreign operations; allow risk, including receiving new permits and maintaining existing permits; title and access risk; cost overruns; unpredictable weather and maintenance of natural resources; unforeseen delays; intellectual property risks; currency and interest rate fluctuations; operational risks; health and safety risks; and general market and industry conditions. Risks, assumptions and other additional factors are set out in management’s latest discussion analysis and in the annual reporting form, copies of which are available from SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Although the company has attempted to identify important risks and assumptions, given the uncertainties inherent in such forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause results to differ materially. The forward-looking information is made as of the date hereof and the company does not intend, and expressly disclaims any obligation, to update or revise the forward-looking information contained in this press release, except as required by law. Accordingly, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking information.
