David Archer, Savannah's Chief Executive Officer said, "We are delighted to present our new video on Mina do Barroso. We hope that it gives all our stakeholders a clear vision of the Project and the far-reaching potential benefits it could bring for the local area and Portugal as a whole. It also underlines Savannah's firm commitment to develop and operate the Project in a sustainable and responsible way, employing industry best practice to minimise its environmental impact and maximise the Project's long-term value creation for all our stakeholders. Portugal's Government has identified that the country's lithium endowment presents the nation with the opportunity to become a prominent player in Europe's expanding lithium ion battery industry and make a significant contribution to tackling climate change. We believe Mina do Barroso is a key part of Portugal's lithium opportunity."


"We recently published the key findings and recommendations from a report prepared by Professors Cerejeira and Carballo-Cruz from the University of Minho  regarding the Project's potential economic and social benefits (the "Report") (27 July 2020 RNS: Mina do Barroso Lithium Project Socio Economic Impact Report). The video reiterates many of the themes highlighted in the Report. These include the hundreds of direct and indirect jobs that the Project will create, the significant new source of demand the Project will represent for other businesses, and the prosperity it can bring to this part of northern Portugal to help with its economic and social rejuvenation."
