Atlas Lithium Corporation (NASDAQ: ATLX) (“Atlas Lithium” or “Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Martin Rowley as the Company’s Lead Strategic Advisor. Mr. Rowley is a pioneer of the modern lithium industry and has over 40 years of experience as a founder, financier, and highly successful mining entrepreneur. In fact, Mr. Rowley has earned the rare distinction of starting and growing two prominent multi-billion-dollar companies, one in lithium and the other in copper.
In 1996, Mr. Rowley co-founded copper producer First Quantum Minerals Ltd., currently valued at over CAD 22 billion. In 2009, he recognized the potential of lithium and became Chairman of Lithium One Inc, which at that stage had secured interests in the Sal de Vida and James Bay lithium assets in Argentina and Canada. Mr. Rowley then became Chairman of Galaxy Resources Ltd after it merged with Lithium One, adding the Mt. Cattlin spodumene mine in Australia to its asset portfolio. He led significant growth in Galaxy, ultimately resulting in the merger with Orocobre Ltd in 2021 which created Allkem Ltd. Since the time of his appointment as Chair of Lithium One, its market capitalization grew from AUD 20 million to a recent peak of over AUD 10 billion for Allkem. Mr. Rowley retired as Chairman of Allkem in November 2022.
Martin Rowley commented, “Atlas Lithium appealed to me as a company focused on strong execution rather than marketing hype. Under Marc’s leadership, the company has put together a first-class team and a high-potential asset portfolio. I look forward to contributing my experience and insights to assist growing Atlas Lithium into a leading resource company.”
Marc Fogassa, the Company’s Chairman and CEO, commented, “Our immediate focus is to become a lithium producer. We believe that Mr. Rowley’s strategic advice will help drive significant value creation for our shareholders as we accelerate the execution of such plan. His willingness to lend his expertise and experience is a testament to his belief in our vision.”
