Vancouver, B.C. – August 25, 2023 – SPOD LITHIUM CORP. (“SPOD” or the “Company”) (CSE: SPOD) (OTCQB:SPODF) is pleased to announce that it has amended its mineral option agreement with Visible Gold Mines Inc. (“Visible”) respecting the Megali exploration property (the “Property”) dated August 3, 2022 (the “Agreement”) (see SPOD’s press release dated August 4, 2022).
Pursuant to the amended Agreement, SPOD is required to conduct at least $350,000 in exploration expenditures on the Property on or before September 18, 2023, to meet its first-year option obligations under the Agreement. SPOD has already met the other first year option obligations, issuing 700,000 Class A common shares of the Company to Visible at a deemed price of $0.09 per share and by making a cash payment of $50,000 to Visible. The shares are subject to a statutory four-month hold period.
The purpose of the extension is due to the restrictions imposed by the Quebec government earlier in the summer because of the regional forest fire situation. These restrictions directly impacted exploration operations, and, therefore, the Company was delayed in kicking off its current and ongoing surface exploration field activities. As previously announced by SPOD on August 10th, exploration activities have begun, and the exploration team is making excellent progress executing on the exploration plan. The Company is eager to report exploration results as they become available.
