Manitoba’s Deputy Premier, Cliff Cullen, commented,“Companies such as LG Energy Solution and Snow Lake Lithium are leading the exploration and development of critical minerals that will be key to helping the world pursue the goal of decarbonization. Manitoba has the mineral, energy and human resources needed to help meet growing global demand and we are very excited that LG Energy Solution and Snow Lake Lithium have recognized the potential of Manitoba as a great place to invest. Our government is committed to ensuring that Manitoba is a great place to invest and grow the industries that will lead the energy transition that is transforming the world.”

Following our exciting collaboration with world-leading LG Energy Solution we are confident that our rock to road battery supply chain will help the electric vehicle market in North America.”
