The Energy Report Examines the Momentum Building at Nemaska Lithium's Mine and Plant

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - December 21, 2016) - Nemaska Lithium's (TSX: NMX)(OTCQX: NMKEF) progress on the Whabouchi lithium project and the Shawinigan Phase 1 Plant has garnered the attention of several analysts.

Included in this interview is: Nemaska Lithium Inc.

Nemaska Lithium Inc. provided a progress report on its Whabouchi lithium mineral project in Quebec on Dec. 12, as well as an update on its Shawinigan Phase 1 Plant. Guy Bourassa, president and CEO of Nemaska Lithium, said, "We are advancing the project on all fronts and I am very pleased with our progress to date. We expect to be producing a 6% Li2O concentrate and processing it into battery grade lithium salts next year, which is approximately 18 months ahead of our planned commercial production. This will enable us to actively engage customers and demonstrate the quality of our products while we are still building our commercial facilities."

Eric Zaunschwerb, an analyst with Canaccord Genuity, wrote in a company update on Dec. 12 that, "Management expects the Phase 1 Plant to be up and running 24 hours/day and 7 days/week in Q1 2017. Progress is being made on budget and on schedule, with technical operators currently being trained, which should lead to the production of 435 tonnes per annum of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE), also in Q1 2017." He added that "as part of the recent resource update, an updated feasibility study is in the works, with results expected to be published in January 2017."
