The Company listed via initial public offering (IPO) in 2017 under the name Lithium Consolidated Mineral Exploration Limited (Li3) with the goal of feeding the rapidly growing battery mineral industry. Li3 went on to acquire multiple lithium projects on 3 continents and had a string of successful exploration and divestment transactions.
In 2019, faced with a challenging lithium market, the board decided to expand the strategic focus of the company into a more diversified direction and began looking at other commodities such as copper. At the end of 2019, Li3 acquired private exploration company Warrigal Mining and have subsequently continued developing an exciting portfolio of precious and base metals projects in Western Australia to complement the existing energy metal projects.
In August 2020, shareholders elected to rebrand the company to Tempest Minerals Ltd to better reflect the evolved business and its more diverse commodity focus.
