Boca Raton, Florida–(Newsfile Corp. – October 4, 2023) – Atlas Lithium Corporation (NASDAQ: ATLX) (FSE: C480) ("Atlas Lithium" or "Company"), a leading mineral exploration and development company, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Frankfurt-based DGWA, the German Institute for Asset and Equity Allocation and Valuation (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Wertpapieranalyse GmbH) as the Company's investor relations and corporate advisor in Europe. This appointment seeks to maximize the value of the pre-existing dual listing of the Company's common shares on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Tradegate, and other German exchanges (WKN: A3D3MQ).
DGWA will assist Atlas Lithium to interface with institutional and retail investors in the German-speaking DACH region (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) with a population of close to 100 million people, as well as in the United Kingdom and the other countries in Europe. DGWA will assist Atlas Lithium to increase investor awareness of the Company's activities in Brazil, and in particular the company's flagship Minas Gerais lithium project.
Mr. Stefan Müller, the CEO of DGWA, said, "This is a perfect time in Atlas Lithium's journey to be engaging with European investors. The Company owns a robust portfolio of hard-rock lithium mineral rights in Brazil covering over 306 square kilometers. Recently the company was granted priority status for review of its permitting and licensing – leading to possible early-stage production.
"European investors, governments and OEMs are acutely aware of the impending lithium shortfall which may require a quadrupling of lithium production from 2020 to 2030 to meet demand. Here in Europe tailwinds such the European Critical Raw Materials Act, Battery Regulations Act, and the phasing out of conventional cars will ensure investor attention is very much focused on quality battery metals assets and near-term production companies which directly benefits Atlas Lithium.
"Brazil is well-respected mining jurisdiction and is seen as increasingly important to Germany and Europe for meeting critical raw material requirements. Atlas Lithium has also demonstrated strong commitment to ESG precepts – an important investment consideration for European investors."
Marc Fogassa, the Chairman and CEO of Atlas Lithium, commented, "Brazil is poised to become a premier supplier of lithium globally and we are fortunate to have DWGA as an advisor on our side for this journey."
