Covering a 472km² area and located within and to the south of Lithium Valley, the projects include 24 granted exploration licences across seven areas including Carai, Catuji, Curral de Dentro, Governador Valadares, Itaipe, Itambacuri and Minas Novas.
As per the deal, which was signed earlier this year, Alderan paid A$110,000 ($70,513.30) in cash and issued 150 million of its shares at A$0.006 apiece.
The deal consideration also includes 100 million class AL8OA options, each exercisable at A$0.016. This is due to expire in September 2025.
