Lithium Americas Receives Record of Decision for Thacker Pass
“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,” President and CEO Jon Evans said. “With the federal permitting process complete, our focus is on advancing the financing process, including discussions with potential strategic partners.”
Receipt of the ROD represents an important milestone in the development and the permitting of the Thacker Pass project, according to the company. Applications for key state permits and water rights transfers have been submitted, with results expected later this year.
