ION Energy – Mongolia’s First Lithium Brine Explorer & Developer

ION Energy is Mongolia’s first lithium brine explorer and developer, with licences spanning a combined landmass of over 110,000 hectares. They are a fully-funded company with first-mover advantage in mineral rich Mongolia. Since 2017, when their seasoned co-founders recognized that our world was on the verge of a Green Revolution, ION Energy has pursued an aggressive growth strategy. They started publicly trading their shares on the TSX-V in August 2020, and have subsequently strengthened their executive team, acquired their second lithium brine licence, completed a $5.75M bought deal offering, launched a maiden exploration program, and entered into a strategic alliance with a Mongolian copper exploration company. Their team’s primary focus in 2022 has been the continued exploration efforts at both of their 100%-owned exploration licences, Baavhai Uul and Urgakh Naran.
