- Matt Chatterton, PEng. appointed as CEO and Director of POWR Lithium

With POWR’s strategic planning solidly established, the Company’s goal is to establish firm guidance for the development of practical and economically viable mineral processing technologies in conjunction with plans to complete technical and economic studies of its flagship Halo lithium project pursuant to proposed future asset development and potential mining operations.
Mr. Chatterton brings over 20 years experience in the development and execution of complex projects, including 12 years with the mining division of FLSmidth. His expertise includes mineral process development, project development and management, facility management, logistics controls, supply side processes and procedures at a number of international manufacturing operations in Canada, China, Bulgaria, the Philippines, and Israel. He has been actively involved in the public markets including management of IPO processes and in transitioning businesses to post public listing operations.

Mr. Chatterton, as newly appointed CEO of POWR Lithium notes, “I am delighted to have the opportunity to help advance POWR towards tangible results. I have been provided an excellent set of tools, assets, and opportunities to work with. I believe the domestic lithium sector deserves smart solutions to ensure supply chain independence. We believe the demand for lithium is poised for an extended period of growth and its clear that national demand combined with justifiable concerns regarding foreign sources has added immediacy to deliver new lithium extraction and processing technologies to market as soon as possible. With this in mind, I look forward to overcoming the short-term challenges and in helping to do our part towards building value for the industry and our shareholders alike.”
POWR Lithium’s board and stakeholders wish to thank Mr. Patrick Morris for his dedication as outgoing CEO during the post-IPO transition period which required decisive leadership in the acquisition of the current asset portfolio, and for exceptional input into the development of the Company’s strategic plans for the proposed upcoming phases of development.
