Tees Valley Lithium Ltd and Wave International Site Visit

Alkemy Capital Investments plc ("Alkemy")'s wholly-owned subsidiary, Tees Valley Lithium Limited ("TVL") is moving rapidly towards establishing Europe's first sustainable battery-grade lithium hydroxide processing facility in the UK.

Last week, TVL CEO John Walker visited Sembcorp Energy UK's site at Wilton International, where TVL has an exclusivity agreement in place for a 20-acre plot in order to construct Europe's first low-carbon battery-grade lithium hydroxide plant.

Ryan Hanrahan and Michael Barker from Wave International Limited ("Wave") were also present at the site visit, ahead of the release of the Class 4 Feasibility Study, conducted by Wave. The Class 4 Study is due to be released shortly.

TVL and Wave also met with PD Ports for a tour of the shipping and logistics company's main operation at Teesport - the fifth largest port in the UK and the only major port in England to handle more exports than imports.

The activities not only provided valuable information to inform the Class 4 study, but also served to strengthen relationships between the local partners and the TVL / Wave teams. TVL and Wave are planning to establish a local project team in the Teesside area in the coming month to accelerate finalisation of local agreements and progress towards execution.

Tees Valley Lithium, CEO John Walker, commented:

"Tees Valley Lithium is excited to be partnering with world-class companies such as PD Ports, Sembcorp Energy UK and Wave International to establish a major independent and sustainable lithium hydroxide production at the Wilton International chemical park in the Teesside Freeport to supply the burgeoning demand from the electric vehicle industry.

At full production Tees Valley will produce 96,000 tonnes a year of lithium hydroxide equivalent to 15% of the UK and EU demand by 2025."
