Plateau Energy Metals is an exploration and development company controlling over 910 km² of lithium and uranium rich territory in Peru. We are focused on 1) advancing the high-grade Falchani Lithium Project (NI 43-101 maiden resource announced July 24, 2018) to a Preliminary Economic Assessment while continuing exploration at the zones of known mineralization, and 2) commencing an optimization review on the Macusani Uranium project with plans to update the Preliminary Economic Assessment.

Management Profile

Alex Holmes – CEO

Mr. Holmes has spent more than 15 years working in the mining industry. Most recently, he was a partner and co-founder of Oxygen Capital Corp., leading business development activities for all affiliated companies, including True Gold Mining Inc. where he served as VP Business Development and co-founder. Alex played an instrumental role as part of the senior leadership team from initial asset acquisition in 2013, reserves and resources growth, advancing the project from Preliminary Economic Assessment to Feasibility Study, through project finance and ultimately gold production in early 2016. Over that period Alex and team raised in excess of $215 million to construct and operate True Gold’s Karma mine.

In a sentence, what do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?

Plateau Energy Metals is unique in that it controls two significant metal projects of the future – the book ends of carbon-neutral green energy (uranium) and a critical metal used in battery storage (lithium). With global policies moving towards reduced emissions, increased nuclear power as a percentage of total power production and government policies in place to mandate Electric Vehicle production and encourage adoption, Plateau is well positioned with its portfolio of projects.
