Lithium Power International Limited's JV company Minera Salar Blanco SA said that the Chilean Environmental Service has extended the EIA evaluation process for 60 days. The Chilean regulations sets a timeframe of 120 business days for the final environmental evaluation of any project submitted in the country. It also grants the Environmental Service a one-time extension, at its own discretion during the process, if needed to complete the evaluation. The use of this extension by the Environmental Service is customary among large and/or complex projects in Chile and was expected by MSB, as the initial evaluation timeframe of 120 days was due, 15 October.

This request by the Environmental Service for an extension is a result of no specific question or query, but rather to grant more time to review the comprehensive data that has already been provided by MSB. A resolution from the Environmental Service is expected in Q1 2020.
