    HIGHLIGHTS OF PLANNED PRODUCTION EXPANSION

    Sigma Lithium announces positive economic results of its study to potentially triple integrated production (the "Production Expansion Study") of Battery Grade Sustainable Lithium Concentrate from 270,000 tpa (36,700 tpa LCE) commencing in 2023 to 768,000 tpa (104,200 tpa LCE) in the second year at the Company's 100% owned Grota do Cirilo Project (the "Project").
    The Project expansion may potentially position Sigma Lithium as one of the world's largest fully integrated lithium producers (from mine to lithium materials).
    The Production Expansion Study demonstrated robust Project economics, highlighted by an after-tax NPV8% of US$ 15.3 billion, incorporating production from Phase 1 (nearing commissioning initiation) combined with Phase 2 and Phase 3.
    Total Capex for the Project expansion is estimated at US$ 155 million and could be fully funded as follows:
    A portion of the US$ 100 million Debt Financing
    After-tax free cash flow once production is initiated in early 2023.
    The Construction of the Project expansion could potentially be initiated with earthworks and ordering of long lead items in the first quarter of 2023, once a final decision is made by the Company.
    At the expanded capacity, the key economics of the Project are as follows:

    SIGNING DEFINITIVE AGREEMENTS FOR UP TO US$100 MILLION DEBT FINANCING

    Sigma Lithium also announces signing of definitive agreements for up to US$100 million senior secured pre-export financing (the "Debt Financing") with Synergy Capital, one of the Company's current shareholders, based in the United Arab Emirates.
    The Debt Financing will fully fund the Company until August 2023, including the initiation of detailed engineering and the initiation of construction of the Project Expansion.
    The Debt Financing has a 4-year maturity date and interest rate of BSBY plus 6.95% per annum (12-month Bloomberg Short Term Bank Yield Index).
    The initial drawdown of $60 million under the Debt Financing is expected to close this year.
    MINERAL RESERVES INCREASED BY 63% AND MINERAL RESOURCE INCREASE

    Increased proven and probable mineral reserves by 63% to 54.8 Mt of lithium spodumene, while maintaining high grade at 1.44% lithium oxide.
    Total Project measured and indicated mineral resources (inclusive of reserves) increased to 77.0 Mt grading 1.43% lithium oxide and 12.1 Mt of inferred mineral resources grading 1.45% lithium oxide.
    Increased Project life to 20 years (at the current planned production rate).
    Phase 3 proven and probable mineral reserve estimate of 21.2 Mt, while maintaining a high grade at 1.45% lithium oxide.
    Phase 3 measured and indicated mineral resources (inclusive of reserves) updated to a total of 26.7 Mt maintaining a high grade at 1.49% lithium oxide.
    VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- SIGMA Lithium Corporation ("Sigma Lithium" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SGML, TSXV: SGML), dedicated to powering the next generation of electric vehicles with high-purity lithium environmentally and socially sustainable lithium, is pleased to announce the positive economic results of its study ("Production Expansion Study") for a potential integrated production increase of Battery Grade Sustainable Lithium Concentrate from 270,000 tpa (36,700 tpa LCE) commencing in 2023 to 768,000 tpa (104,200 tpa LCE) in the second year at the Company's 100% owned Grota do Cirilo Project (the "Project"), currently in construction in Minas Gerais, Brazil.

    The Production Expansion Study demonstrated robust Project economics, highlighted by an after-tax NPV8% of US$15.3 billion, incorporating production from Phase 1 (nearing commissioning initiation) combined with Phase 2 and Phase 3.

    Battery Grade Sustainable Lithium Concentrate production expansion could be achieved by the addition to the Greentech Lithium Plant of a single larger additional dense media separation module paired with a proportional crushing module. Increase in mining feedstock for the integrated production expansion of the Greentech Lithium Plant shall be achieved by the construction of the Phase 2 and Phase 3 Mines.

    Sigma Lithium also announces the signing of definitive agreements for up to US$100 million senior secured pre-export financing (the "Debt Financing") with Synergy Capital, one of the Company's current shareholders, based in the United Arab Emirates.

    "With Phase 1 rapidly progressing towards production in the near term, we are delighted to share the outstanding achievements of our team towards increasing near-term production of Battery Grade Sustainable Lithium on two critical fronts: completion of technical studies for Project Expansion and debt financing," says Ana Cabral-Gardner, Co-CEO and Co-Chairperson of Sigma Lithium. "More importantly, we shall be able to remain at the low end of the cost curve."

    Co-CEO and Co-Chairperson Calvyn Gardner adds, "We are very happy with the results of the Phase 2 and 3 expansion plans at Grota do Cirilo, which cements Sigma Lithium as potentially one of the largest lithium producers globally. Further, our ability to continue to maintain the high grades of the mineral resources, as we expand integrated production demonstrates the significant additional growth potential of the Company."

    Sudhir Maheshwari, Managing Partner of Synergy Capital says: "We are extremely pleased that our multi-year partnership with Sigma Lithium has reached a major milestone, as the Company is set to start lithium production in a few months."

    US$100 MILLION DEBT FINANCING

    The Debt Financing will fully fund the Company until August 2023, including the initiation of detailed engineering and initiation of construction of the Project expansion. The Debt Financing is also expected to fund working capital requirements for the entire commissioning period of the Greentech Plant as well as for general corporate purposes.

    The initial drawdown of $60 million under the Debt Financing is expected to close this year. The remaining drawdown is subject to certain remaining conditions precedent.

    The Debt Financing is available by way of a multi-draw term loan and contemplates a 48-month maturity date and a borrowing rate of 12-month BSBY plus 6.95% per annum (which may be increased by an additional 3.5% per annum to the extent that there is a delay in the satisfaction of certain conditions subsequent).

    The Debt Financing is a senior secured obligation, secured by, among other things, all assets of Sigma Brazil including a pledge of all of the shares of Sigma Brazil, as well as a guarantee from the Company until certain release conditions are met.
    Amounts borrowed under the Debt Financing must be repaid by 50% of net cash generated from export receivables generated from operating and investing activities of the Company.
    Furthermore, the Debt Financing must be permanently repaid in part, to the extent any additional debt financing is raised by Sigma Brazil exceeding the threshold of approximately US$ 120 million.
    The Debt Financing is otherwise due in full on the Maturity Date, subject to the prior occurrence of an event of default or change of control transaction.
    The definitive agreements for the Debt Financing include other customary financing terms and conditions, including those related to security, fees, prepayment premiums, representations, warranties, covenants, and conditions.

    MAIDEN PHASE 3 MINERAL RESERVES AND UPDATED MINERAL RESOURCES

    The Phase 3 mineral reserve has been declared as a result of the positive economic results of the analysis to be published in the Updated Technical Report. The Phase 3 mineral resource was updated after Sigma Lithium completed an additional 13 drillholes (3,531 meters), which enabled the conversion of previous Inferred mineral resource estimates into the Indicated category down-dip and at the top of the south zone of the deposit. The additional drilling also allowed the Company's geological and metallurgical engineering consultant, SGS Canada Lakefield ("SGS"), to model two small satellite zones, one in the hanging wall of the north zone and one in the hanging wall of the south zone.
