Lithium Americas Corp (LAC) of Vancouver, BC has announced that the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has issued the Record of Decision (ROD) for its Thacker Pass lithium project following completion of the National Environmental Policy Act process.
Jon Evans, LAC’s CEO, said, “The issuance of the ROD is the culmination of over 10 years of hard work from the Thacker Pass team, as well as the BLM and other federal, state and local agencies, all of whom worked tirelessly to ensure their respective commitments to environmental stewardship and community engagement. With the federal permitting process complete, our focus is on advancing the financing process including discussions with potential strategic partners.”
LAC says that applications for key state permits and water rights transfers have been submitted, with results expected later this year.
