Selling the assets in Gabon will enable Infinity to place its sole focus on an integrated European lithium strategy based on its San Jose project in Spain.
The LOI grants an exclusive option to purchase a 100% interest in EPPL for consideration of up to US$3 million in cash or shares.
EPPL holds a 100% interest in Mayuma Potasse SARL, which holds 100% of the Banio and Mamana Potash Projects in Gabon.
Holding costs attributable to these projects will be met by the holder of the option over the term of the option period.
Infinity Lithium managing director Ryan Parkin said: “The Gabonese potash assets are high-quality, proven potash deposits with great potential.
“Infinity has previously announced its intention to divest the Gabon assets and is now focused solely on the lithium industry, having recently advanced to 75% ownership of the San Jose lithium deposit in Spain.
“This warrants our absolute focus and attention.
“Having a deal structure which can deliver real value through removing holding costs for Gabon and providing leverage to equity upside is a good outcome.”
Infinity acquired the potash assets prior to becoming involved in the San Jose Lithium Project in Spain.
A positive drilling program led by Infinity in 2017 was successful in establishing a camp, setting up in-country infrastructure, obtaining a mining convention over the Banio project and delivering a maiden JORC resource.
