High level officials from the Federal Government of Brazil, the state of Bahia, the town of Maracás as well as Largo’s investors, project partners and other stakeholders will join Largo to officially inaugurate the mining facility.

Largo encourages all interested parties to follow its Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram feeds during the event on the 21st of May.

Additionally, Largo announces that it has received its Preliminary Operating License for production at the Maracás Vanadium Project (the "Licença Prévia de Operação" or "L.P.O.").

The L.P.O. is issued following the completion of commissioning and in advance of the final operating license ("L.O.") in order to provide the required time for production ramp-up to full capacity and to adjust parameters necessary to meet design specification.

Given that Largo is in compliance with all matters pertaining to its facility, it is anticipated that receipt of the final L.O. will occur within 180 days of this announcement.
