CleanTech Lithium PLC ("CleanTech Lithium", "CTL" or the "Company")

DTC Eligibility for OTCQX Trading in the United States



CleanTech Lithium PLC (AIM:CTL, Frankfurt:T2N, OTCQX:CTLHF), an exploration and development company advancing next-generation sustainable lithium projects in Chile for the EV transition, is pleased to announce the Company's ordinary shares in the United States are now eligible to be exchanged and settled through the Depository Trust Company ("DTC").


The DTC is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, is a member of the U.S. Federal Reserve System and is the largest securities depository in the world. Being DTC eligible significantly reduces exchange costs and barriers to electronic trading in the Company for U.S. and Canadian based investors.


Today's announcement follows the recent graduation for the Company from the OTCQB Venture Market to the OTCQX Best Market, which will enable investors in North America to easily trade in the Company. In North America, CleanTech Lithium can be found on investor platforms under the symbol "CTLHF". Online brokers such as Interactive Brokers, Fidelity Investments and TradeStation all offer OTCQX trading services.


Aldo Boitano, Chief Executive Officer, CleanTech Lithium Plc., said:

"Achieving DTC eligibility and the graduation to OTCQX Best Market significantly reduces barriers to trade and puts us amongst a group of premium publicly listed companies in the United States. Investors, excited about the Electric Vehicle revolution, will now be able to trade in the Company's ordinary shares in the US and settle in the US.

"We are committed to enhance the visibility and appeal of CleanTech Lithium's stock in North America, recognising the strong demand from investors who see the long-term role of lithium in EV manufacturing. By being DTC eligible, we aim to cater to this growing interest as we make progress to become a leading supplier in the EV supply chain and delivering value to our stakeholders."

CleanTech Lithium (AIM:CTL, Frankfurt:T2N, OTCQX:CTLHF) is an exploration and development company advancing next-generation sustainable lithium projects in Chile for the EV transition.  Proudly sustainable, committed to net-zero, our mission is to produce material quantities of battery grade, carbon-neutral lithium using sustainable Direct Lithium Extraction technology, powered by clean energy, we plan to be the greenest lithium supplier to the EV market.


CleanTech Lithium has three prospective lithium projects - Laguna Verde, Francisco Basin and Llamara - located in the lithium triangle, the world's centre for battery grade lithium production. The Laguna Verde and Francisco Basin projects are situated within basins entirely controlled by the Company, which affords significant potential development and operational advantages. Llamara is the Company's latest greenfield project, which offers material potential upside at a low initial cost. All three projects have direct access to excellent infrastructure and renewable power.  


CleanTech Lithium is committed to using renewable power for processing and reducing the environmental impact of its lithium production by utilising Direct Lithium Extraction. Direct Lithium Extraction is a transformative technology which removes lithium from brine, with higher recoveries and purities. The method offers short development lead times, low upfront capex, with no extensive site construction and no evaporation pond development so there is no water depletion from the aquifer or harm to the local environment.
