Argosy Minerals Ltd (ASX:AGY) is acquiring three additional tenements – Mina San Jose, Mina Jujuy and Mina San Marcos, comprising a total tenement area of 209.5 hectares for the Rincon Lithium Project in Salta Province, Argentina.

Argosy will pay a purchase fee of about US$538,702 following successful completion of due diligence works and associated regulatory requirements, for the outright purchase of the three mining titles.

Strategically, Mina Jujuy and San Marcos adjoin Argosy’s Mina Tincal tenement, allowing the company to apply to join these tenements into Mining Group status for the purposes of regulatory applications for exploitation permits.

Mining Group status will also be important for future potential commercial lithium brine pumping operations.
