Atlas Lithium Corporation (NASDAQ: ATLX) (“Atlas Lithium” or “Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Nicholas Rowley as its Vice President of Business Development effective immediately. Mr. Rowley brings over a decade of experience with many strong relationships built over time throughout the global lithium space. Atlas Lithium plans to develop an environmentally friendly and efficient facility to produce lithium concentrate in Brazil’s Lithium Valley. The Company owns a large portfolio of mineral rights for hard-rock lithium in the state of Minas Gerais where Lithium Valley is located.
Mr. Rowley joins the Atlas management team following a lengthy and highly successful career at Galaxy Resources Limited, a lithium-focused company with assets spanning Australia, Canada, and Argentina where he held several key roles, most notably Director of Corporate Development. In this position, he contributed significantly to the growth and enhancement of the Galaxy portfolio of assets through partnerships and divestitures and later to the implementation of its AUD 6 billion merger with Orocobre Limited in 2021, creating Allkem Limited, one of the world’s largest lithium producers.
Mr. Rowley is also the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Electramin, a global battery metal trading company. In addition, he is the founder and executive director at RTEK International, which has offered mining engineering, planning and business development services to hard-rock lithium explorers and producers worldwide. Mr. Rowley holds a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Management from the University of Notre Dame, Australia.
“I am delighted to welcome Mr. Rowley to our management team,” said Marc Fogassa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Atlas Lithium. “It is a testament to the strength of Brazil’s Lithium Valley as a mining jurisdiction that we can attract such talent. Atlas Lithium has been approached by multiple companies within the global lithium space seeking to learn more about our exciting project and Nick will rapidly advance those conversations. Additionally, given his experience with lithium projects that transitioned from explorer to producer, I believe that Nick will add tremendous value in our continued progress towards the production stage.”
