American Lithium brings power to remote Peruvians, strengthens team

American Lithium said it has commenced a major technical/social initiative on the Macusani Plateau with the Peruvian Armed Forces. The solar electrification program involves the installation of solar panels at remote homes that lack electricity.

To date, the miner has installed over 240 of the planned 1,000 installations for this year in the five Andean communities surrounding its Falchani lithium project. Each solar unit powers a lithium-based battery, four LED bulbs, a torch, a portable radio, and USB ports for charging cell phones. 

Separately, the miner has appointed the former Peruvian Deputy Minister of Mines Augusto Cauti as a strategic corporate advisor in relation to the miner’s operations in Peru.

Cauti is a seasoned mining executive who served as Deputy Minister of Mines in 2019-2020. He was previously an executive director of the Australia-Peru Chamber of Commerce (2015-2019) and General Counsel for Pan American Silver Peru (2006-2013). Cauti is an experienced professional providing strategic business relations, access to markets and business development advice in the Andean markets.
