Snow Lake Resources (Nasdaq: LITM), dba Snow Lake Lithium, announced last night that it has called for a special meeting of shareholders, upon the request of a 5.4%-equity shareholder. The latter has requested the meeting call to discuss, among others, “removing all of the directors of the company.”

The shareholder group is said to include individuals and entities associated with Avrohom Mordechai “Avi’ Kimelman, of St Kilda East, Victoria, Australia. Kimelman was a former director of the company and a former CEO of Quantum Resources, now called Nova Minerals–which owns 37% equity on Snow Lake Lithium.

But Kimelman had also been convicted in November 2021 of insider trading and market manipulation after he acquired shares in then-Quantum Resources while “possessing inside information concerning Quantum’s intention to acquire Manitoba Minerals.”

After pleading guilty, the Australian businessman was sentenced to 18-month imprisonment but was released immediately under a two-year, A$5,000 good behavior bond. He is also banned from managing corporations for five years.

The Kimelman shareholder group is requesting the shareholders’ meeting to propose removing all of the company’s directors, increasing the board seats to six, and electing its nominated six-director slate.

The current Snow Lake Lithium board is led by CEO Philip Gross, who assumed board chairmanship on May 29 after former chair Louie Simens resigned. The rest of the board directors is composed of VP of Resource Development Dale Schultz and three independent directors: private equity firm Halevi Enterprises CEO Nachum Labkowski, Daymar (London) COO Allan David Engel, and non-profit Kayla’s Children Center board president Hadassah Slater.

Snow Lake is acquiescing to the request, setting a special meeting of shareholders in conjunction with its annual meeting of shareholders on December 15 to consider the matters raised by the shareholder group.

The lithium firm signed last week a memorandum of understanding with Epiroc Canada to build the Snow Lake Lithium project into “the world’s first fully-electric lithium mine.” 

The company made its initial public offering in November 2021, targeting to begin mining activities by Q1 2024.

Snow Lake last traded at US$2.39 on the Nasdaq.
