Frontier Lithium Inc. is pleased to announce the appointment of Graeme Goodall, to the position of Vice President of Operations. Mr. Goodall is a Professional Engineer with a designation in Metallurgical Engineering. He holds a Ph.D. in Materials Engineering from McGill University. Mr. Goodall joins Frontier with over twenty years of experience focused on metallurgy, pyrometallurgy and extractive operations for multi-national mining and metals producers.

As stated by Trevor Walker, President & CEO of Frontier Lithium, upon the appointment of Mr. Goodall, "We are fortunate to be able to attract global experts, like Graeme, locally. Graeme's knowledge and experience will complement our current team and add significant value to Frontier Lithium as we plan for production."

The addition of Mr. Goodall reflects the company's strategy to complement its existing expertise in lithium refining with strong operational and metallurgy expertise.

The appointment comes at a time when Frontier is focussed on advancing its fully integrated PAK Lithium Project which will see a mine, mill and lithium salts plant operational in the coming years.

"I am excited by the opportunity to join the Frontier Lithium team. I look forward to contributing my knowledge and understanding in the areas of metallurgy and extractive operations as it moves into production", expressed Mr. Goodall.

Mr. Goodall has held several positions with international mining and metals companies, including Glencore, Vale , Rio Tinto and Noranda. His most recent position was as Manager, Pyrometallurgy and Furnace Integrity at Glencore XPS in Sudbury and prior to that as Interim Technical Director and Superintendent, Furnace Integrity at Koniambo SAS in New Caledonia. In addition to his doctorate degree, Mr. Goodall also holds a Master of Materials Engineering and a Bachelor of Metallurgical Engineering from McGill University in Montreal, QC.

Frontier Lithium is a preproduction business with an objective to become a strategic domestic supplier of spodumene concentrates for industrial users as well as battery-grade lithium hydroxide and other chemicals to the growing electric vehicle and energy storage markets in North America. The Company maintains the largest land position and resource in a premium lithium mineral district located in Ontario's Great Lakes region.

The PAK lithium project contains one of North America's highest-grade lithium resources. The project encompasses close to 27,000 hectares and remains largely unexplored; however, since 2013, the company has delineated two premium spodumene-bearing lithium deposits, located 2.3 kilometres apart.
