Western Troy Proposes Name Change at Annual General Meeting to Li3 Lithium Corp to Reflect the Company’s New Focus On Lithium
Toronto, Canada May 9, 2022 – Western Troy Capital Resources Inc. (TSXV WRY) (the “Company”, or “WRY”) is pleased to announce that an annual and special meeting of the common shareholders of the Company has been called for June 28, 2022 (the “Meeting”). At the Meeting, WRY shareholders will, among other things, be asked to consider, and if thought appropriate, approve the Company’s proposal to change its name to “Li3 Lithium Corp” (the “Name Change”). Additional information concerning the Name Change will be included in a management information circular to be mailed to WRY shareholders in connection with the Meeting. The Name Change will also be subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
WRY is proposing to change its name to more accurately reflect the activities and future focus of the Company. Stephen Dunn, President and Chief Executive Officer of WRY, commented: “The proposed name change reflects the Company’s new strategy of focusing globally on lithium exploration and project development. We see the transition to a net-zero carbon world as providing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for minerals explorers to focus on the explosive growth anticipated in demand for battery metals like lithium.”
WRY recently acquired a 50% interest in Li3 Resources Inc. (“Li3”) whose corporate plan is to acquire an attractive portfolio of highly prospective lithium exploration projects worldwide. Li3’s senior management have successfully executed similar transactions during their past 30+ year history in the mining sector.
Coincident with the change in the Company’s focus to lithium, WRY also wishes to announce that Ed Milewski has resigned as a director effective today. The Company would like to thank Mr. Milewski for his years of dedicated service and support, and we wish him a long and happy retirement.
