Orocobre suspends operations

Orocobre is halting operations at its Argentine operations as the country grapples with COVID-19. The government of Argentina enacted the Decree of Necessity and Urgency (DNU) #297/20 on March 19, 2020 requiring a national mandatory quarantine including prohibition of circulation of citizens and movement of personnel and supplies within the country. Consequently, the Olaroz Lithium Facility (Olaroz) has moved operations to care and maintenance, and currently holds sufficient stock to meet customer orders until the end of April.
