particular in the Artemis JV Project tenure adjacent and to the south;
* EUR will immediately commence reconnaissance exploration to test the
conglomerate gold potential within the tenement;
* Of equal importance, EUR will also commence desktop studies of the iron ore
deposit extension opportunities that were previously identified by Cape Lambert

(27 May 2020), Talaxis Limited ("Talaxis") in respect of a number of possible
funding opportunities regarding E47/4144. Talaxis is a wholly-owned subsidiary

European Lithium Limited (ASX:EUR, FRA:PF8, NEX:EUR, VSE:ELI) (EUR or the
Company) is pleased to advise the following:
On 23 March 2019 tenement E47/1462-I, held by MCC Australia Sanjin Mining Pty
Ltd, expired and was not renewed in the required time. At 8:30am on 25 March
2019 European Lithium Ltd (EUR) applied for exploration licence E47/4144 under
section 58 of the Western Australia Mining Act 1978 (Mining Act). At the same
time the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) received
applications for 13 other exploration licences over the same or a similar area.
Under section 105A(3) of the Mining Act these tenements (14 in total numbered
from E47/4136 to 4149 consecutively) were placed into a ballot that was drawn on
18 September 2020. EUR tenement E47/4144 was drawn first in matters 4, 5 and 7
relating to the ballot. The Company confirmed the new tenement blocks with DMIRS
on 21 September 2020 and, when granted, the configuration of E47/4144 will be as
per the map below which equates to approximately 130km2 .
Subject to Ministerial approval and upon grant, E47/4144 to be 100% legal owned
by EUR and 50% beneficially held by EUR, with the remaining 50% held by Wombat
Pty Limited, an unrelated private company that identified the application. The
parties will in due course negotiate terms upon which activities will be carried
out on the tenement.
EUR Chairman Tony sage commented:
"The ballot victory in our favour is a massive win for the Company. It allows
EUR and its strategic advisors Talaxis to continue the progress of the advanced
Wolfsberg Lithium Project in Austria at a time when there is significant EU
focus on regional EV metal development as well as now add (for nil consideration
other than management time) a strategic land holding in the North West of
Western Australia. EUR won approximately 90% of the available land holdings in
the ballot and importantly, as far as we are aware the tenement area has never
been tested for conglomerate gold given it is only a recently discovered
geological phenomenon in the last few years. We can't wait to commence
reconnaissance exploration to test the potential for conglomerate gold. We are
also excited with the iron ore potential of the tenement given my intimate
knowledge of the area acquired as Chairman of Cape Lambert at the time the
Anketell Project was sold to the Chinese in 2008."
Conglomerate Gold Potential
Given recent success in conglomerate gold in the region, EUR intends to start
immediate exploration to conduct field reconnaissance and mapping of geology and
historical workings. This work will be followed by obtaining the necessary
government approvals (pending grant) to construct a suitable field exploration
program that may involve the development of costeans, drilling etc. Based on the
somewhat random distribution of nugget gold in a conglomerate environment, the
Company will look to undertake larger than normal samples, similar to programs
undertaken by Novo to the South at the Comet and Purdy's Reward Projects.
In addition to an immediate sampling program (pending grant of the tenement),
the Company intends to explore for the source of the gold found in the
conglomerate lithology by:
a) Collecting all previous information on the tenement;
b) Field mapping to identify any possible shear hosted intrusion related sources
and;
c) Investigating the most suitable geophysics and geochemistry to use in
targeting deeper source gold structures.
EUR believes that it is in an exceptionally good position in acquiring, by
ballot, such a well centred tenement with the potential for both conglomerate
and shear hosted gold mineralisation as is found in the Novo, Artemis and De
Grey tenure to the south and east.
The Company looks forward to updating shareholders as soon as possible as it
puts together various geological summaries of the tenement and commences
reconnaissance exploration.
Share Purchase Plan
The Company will offer all existing eligible investors the opportunity to
subscribe for new shares at $0.0475 per Share up to a maximum of 631,579 shares
(maximum of $30,000) per investor under a Share Purchase Plan (SPP). The SPP
will be capped at $2.0M. Funds raised under the SPP will be used primarily
towards exploration on E47/4144.
The SPP issue price is a 19.2% discount to the 5 day VWAP of the Company's
shares.
An indicative timetable for the capital raisings is included in Annexure "A".
This announcement has been authorised for release to the ASX by the Board of the
Company.
