The addition of Mr. Goodall reflects the company’s strategy to complement its existing expertise in lithium refining with strong operational and metallurgy expertise. The appointment comes at a time when Frontier is focussed on advancing its fully integrated PAK Lithium Project which will see a mine, mill and lithium salts plant operational in the coming years.

 “We are fortunate to be able to attract global experts, like Graeme, locally. Graeme’s knowledge and experience will complement our current team and add significant value to Frontier Lithium as we plan for production,” stated Trevor Walker, President & CEO of Frontier Lithium.  

Goodall has held several positions with international mining and metals companies, including Glencore, Vale , Rio Tinto and Noranda.

In addition to his doctorate degree, Mr. Goodall also holds a Master of Materials Engineering and a Bachelor of Metallurgical Engineering from McGill University in Montreal, QC.

About Frontier Lithium
Frontier Lithium is a preproduction business with an objective to become a strategic domestic supplier of spodumene concentrates for industrial users as well as battery-grade lithium hydroxide and other chemicals to the growing electric vehicle and energy storage markets in North America. The company maintains the largest land position and resource in a premium lithium mineral district located in Ontario.

The PAK lithium project contains one of North America's highest-grade lithium resources. The project encompasses close to 27,000 hectares and remains largely unexplored; however, since 2013, the company has delineated two premium spodumene-bearing lithium deposits (PAK and Spark), located 2.3 kilometres apart. Exploration is continuing on the project through two other spodumene-bearing discoveries: the Bolt pegmatite (located between the PAK and Spark deposits), as well as the Pennock pegmatite (25 kilometres northwest of PAK deposit within the project claims). 

A 2021 preliminary economic assessment (National Instrument 43-101 technical report titled "NI 43-101 Technical Report, Pak Property, PAK, Red Lake Mining District, Ontario, Canada" by BBA E&C Inc., with an effective date of April 5, 2021) delivered a fully integrated lithium operation, including the mine and mill and the conversion plant for production of battery-quality lithium salts.
