We’re Exploring for Lithium and other Critical Metals

Pam Asia Metals is the only minerals explorer and developer with advanced Lithium projects in Southeast Asia.

The region is rich in geology and underexplored, and ASEAN, which is located between China and India and has a population of over 600 million people, is one of the fastest growing regions on earth.

The rich geology means that our projects are highly prospective and that we are situated well to secure future opportunities to explore and develop battery and critical metals projects.

Pan Asia Metals also has the advantage of being situated in close proximity to Thailand’s advanced industrial centres and the region’s rapidly growing EV and LIB markets, this is a low cost manufacturing environment in which lithium plays a critical role.

Competitive Advantages

Pan Asia Metals has 3 distinct advantages over the competition.

The Company’s projects are in close proximity to all required inputs for lithium chemical processing and the largest EV and LIB markets in the world, reducing costs and carbon footprint.

Thailand is a low cost advanced industrial and manufacturing centre, and the largest vehicle manufacturer in southeast Asia; Thailand’s industrial policies focus on S-curve industries including Electric Vehicle and Lithium-ion Battery manufacturing.

Pan Asia Metals is positioned to move beyond the mine gate and manufacture lithium chemicals and other advanced lithium products, and has the potential to do so with a Low a Zero Carbon Footprint.

The style of Lithium mineralisation Pan Asia Metals focuses on is Lepidolite, a form of pegmatite rich in Lithium and other minerals such as Caesium and Rubidium.

The Lithium Carbonate Equivalent (LCE) cost curve below indicates that Li2CO3 derived from Lepidolite is generally lower in cost to produce than Li2CO3 from most other hard rock sources.

Note: Most Li2CO3 sourced from brines is classed technical grade, it is then upgraded to a battery grade Li2CO3.  The cost curve below includes both technical grade and battery grade Li2CO3Source: Tianqi Lithium Corp. / Wood Mackenzie (Asia Pacific) Pte. Ltd., June 2022, modified.
