The purpose of the meeting was to discuss Snow Lake Lithium's progress and strategic initiatives as well as the general outlook for lithium production in the province.

Premier Stefanson commented "Manitoba has a long and proud history in the mining industry and for the past century this has been a economic driver for the northern region of our province. As the global economies mature and recognize our shared obligation to protect our environment, Manitoba is keen to play an important role in building a greener future. Projects like Snow Lake Lithium represent a new generation of responsible mining that will also translate into significant investment and jobs for the province at a crucial time in our pandemic recovery."
CEO of Snow Lake Lithium, Philip Gross commented, "We are extremely grateful for the warm reception and gracious hospitality that has been extended by the provincial government and Premier Stefanson, in particular. As we gear up for lithium mining production, it is mission critical that we work closely with the government to ensure that the best interests of the Province are served. As the world mobilizes to achieve global electrification of the automobile fleet, Manitoba is uniquely positioned to play a pivotal role in the EV supply chain over the course of the next decades. Manitoba is blessed with a green energy source, critical rail infrastructure, an abundance of natural resources and, most importantly, a population and government for whom mining is an integral part of the economy and culture. I would contend that there is no where in North America today that is better positioned and more qualified than Manitoba to play this crucial role in improving our planet. We look forward to working closely with and maintaining a continuous dialogue with the municipal, provincial and civil authorities as we progress toward lithium production and beyond."
