(PresseBox) - Millennial Lithium Corp. (ML: TSX.V) (A3N2:GR: Frankfurt) (MLNLF: OTCQB) (?Millennial? or the ?Company? - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298888)igate any potential impacts to the environment or the social framework at the Pastos Grandes Project.

The EIA presented to the Salta Environmental and Mining Authority was prepared by Ausenco-Vector (Ausenco). Ausenco has extensive experience in the preparation of EIAs for the mining industry in compliance with Argentine Federal and Provincial regulations.

Millennial obtained its initial environmental approvals (DIAs, or Declaraciones de Impacto Ambiental) for exploration activities at its initial licenses in 2016, and for its expansion area licenses in the Pastos Grandes Project in 2018.

In October, 2018 the Company completed and presented its Environmental Baseline Studies, undertaken by Ausenco, to the Environmental and Mining Authority of Salta.

Millennial?s President and CEO, Farhad Abasov, commented: the end of 2019.?

The Ausenco EIA report concludes that, considering environmental and socioeconomic factors, the impact of the project is overall positive. The consulting company highlighted only a small number of observations, all of which are positively mitigated:

Visual impact and removal of soils for the evaporation ponds: the portion of the ponds that are located outside of the salar surface are on elevated terraces with poor to no soil development. The ponds and all project surface infrastructure avoid stream channels and wetlands, incurring minimal to no impact on flora and fauna.

Water resources: fresh water extraction for the full process stream, not accounting for fresh water recycling represents only 1.5 - 4.0 percent of the most conservative scenario for recharge, as calculated in a water balance study, part of the brine flow model, by hydrogeological consultants Montgomery & Associates. The overall impact on water levels, including the brine of the resource area itself, has been modeled by Montgomery using ModFlow hydrodynamic numerical modeling software. The brine level draw-down due to pumping as predicted by the model will be monitored through the life of the pumping operations.



Socio-economic impact: the report concludes that the Pastos Grandes Project?s impact on the local communities is overall positive, with improved infrastructure and related services, employment, and opportunities for economic activity.
