The Mutare Lithium Project consists of 1,500 hectares of licences within the Mutare Greenstone Belt of Zimbabwe, located close to the eastern border with Mozambique. The area was deemed prospective for LCT-type pegmatites based on prior target generation work.

Li3 Lithium Corp is a lithium-focused exploration and project development company that recently acquired a 50 per cent interest in Li3 Resources Inc.
