Limited Latin resources (ASX: LRS) (“Latin” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an Options Funding Agreement (“OFA”) to receive funding from $2,500,000 (nominal value $2,750,000) from Lind Asset Management XII, LLCan entity managed by new York based The Lind Partners, LLC (set ‘Lind’). The financing provides a source of capital to enable the Company to fund its program of project development and exploration of its exciting portfolio of lithium projects in Brazilwhile avoiding dilutive equity raising.


$2.5 million signing of an options funding agreement using LRSOC “in the money” options.

If all LRSOC options are exercised, they would generate up to $5.1 million as proceeds from the exercise of options for the Company.

Latin will repay the financing gradually with the proceeds of the LRSOC options as they are exercised, or sooner, at Latin’s option.

The funds will be used to accelerate activity on Latin’s lithium projects in Braziland for general corporate and working capital purposes.

General manager Chris Gale commented: “This innovative financing facility provided by our financing partner, Lind, provides the company with the working capital necessary to continue drilling the newly discovered spodumene pegmatites in our Brazilian portfolio without the need for an equity investment, thereby reducing dilution for existing shareholders. We expected to be able to add a lot of value, very quickly in Brazil with these funds. “Society has good reason to expect more $5 million cash will be received from the exercise of its LRSOC options, and this funding, backed by the option cash, is now accelerating our drilling program. This financing constitutes a profitable source of capital for the Company.’

Philippe Vallieregeneral manager at Lind Partnerssaid, “Lind is extremely pleased to invest in Latin Resources for a third time. They have an exciting pipeline of lithium projects targeting the battery metals sector, which we hope will deliver growth and shareholder value to all LRS shareholders.

Funding Details

The OFA will be advanced to the Company, and Latin shall use all funds received from the exercise of the options (exercisable @ $0.012 – exercise date December 31, 2022) to repay monies owed, allowing OFA to be gradually repaid over the next 10 months (December 31, 2022). The Company has 428,962,607 LRSOC $0.012 options and anticipates that a significant number will be exercised prior to their expiration on December 31, 2022. If so, it will generate approximately $5.1 million liquidity for the Company allowing the Company to comfortably repay the Lind facility and fund other activities. The initial investment will provide funds, including for further drilling in Company’s Salinas Lithium Project in Brazil where the Company recently announced that its current drill program has discovered several spodumene-bearing pegmatites (see ASX announcement of February 16, 2022). The Company intends to build on the current drilling program from 2,000 meters to 5,000 meters, with the intention of advancing the project towards estimating a JORC Mineral Resource on the Salinas Lithium Project. Additionally, the Company will begin defining drill targets on its other lithium leases in the Salinas and Banana Valley areas of Brazil. Once these drill targets are defined, permits will be applied for and drilling will then commence.
