THE ONLY POSITIVE TESLA HEADLINE YOU’LL READ ALL WEEK 🔋

Piedmont Lithium (ASX: PLL) and Tesla have amended their three-year off-take deal, with Piedmont set to deliver 125,000 metric tons of spodumene concentrate to Tesla from the second quarter of 2023.

The pricing of the concentrate will be based on average market prices for lithium hydroxide monohydrate, and will be determined by market prices at the time of each shipment.

Piedmont top hat Keith Phillips said the agreement reflects the importance and growing demand for a North American lithium supply chain, and will help keep critical resources in North America.

Piedmont also has an off-take agreement with Sayona Quebec, with purchases subject to floor and ceiling prices for the life-of-mine term. Commercial shipments start in Q3.

Not bad, Piedmont. Not bad. 👌🏼

FPX FINDS MORE NICKEL AT VAN TARGET 🤘🏼

FPX Nickel Corp. (TSXV: FPX) (OTCQB: FPOCF) confirm more nickel goodness has been found at Van Target, expanding the mineralized footprint at Van to approximately 2 km in strike length by 1 km in width.

  • New drill hole 22VAN-016 intersected 426.9 m grading 0.127% DTR Nickel (0.204% Total Nickel), starting at an approximate vertical depth of 9 m below surface (I could dig that deep with a spoon, just so you know).

  • The highest grades to-date at Van are in the southwest portion of the target area, where future step-out drilling is planned to test the further lateral and depth extension of mineralization. I.e. expect more digging targeting (pun intended) higher grades.
