BELO HORIZONTE, BRAZIL, January 28, 2021 – – Brazil Minerals, Inc. (OTC PINK: BMIX) (the “Company” or “Brazil Minerals”) announced that yesterday the Brazilian mining department granted two additional exploration permits for its lithium project in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil. The size of Brazil Minerals’ lithium project has now doubled from 2019 and stands at 28,316 acres today. The Company’s areas are primarily located in and around Araçuaí and Virgem da Lapa, a well-known lithium district. Brazil Minerals is focused on hard-rock lithium from high-grade spodumene pegmatites.
Areli Nogueira, Vice President of Mineral Exploration at the Company, stated, “Araçuaí Lithium Belt is the name given by the Brazilian Geological Service to the general area where our project is located. It is a mining district rich in spodumene and also frequently containing amblygonite and kunzite, all minerals containing lithium. Our team is excited with the new permits granted and ready to advance.”
Over the last few years, Brazil Minerals has built 100% ownership of projects in a triad of strategic minerals – lithium, titanium, and rare earths. In addition, and differently than other lithium-focused companies, Brazil Minerals has interests in iron through a focused subsidiary, and in gold, through its partial ownership of Jupiter Gold Corporation (OTCQB: JUPGF).
