QUEBEC CITY – Nemaska Lithium has been named to the 2018 OTCQX Best 50, a ranking of top performing companies traded on the OTCQX Best Market last year.

The Best 50 is an annual ranking of the top 50 U.S. and international companies traded on the OTCQX market. The ranking is calculated based on an equal weighting of one-year total return and average daily dollar volume growth in the previous calendar year.

“This is our third year in a row ranking in the OTCQX Top 50 and we are very pleased with our consistent year over year share performance,” commented Guy Bourassa, president and CEO of Nemaska.

Nemaska mines spodumene at the Whabouchi project in the James Bay region of Quebec. The ore is concentrated at the mine and shipped to the company’s hydrometallurgical plant in Shawinigan, Que. This plant transforms the concentrate into high purity lithium hydroxide and carbonate using the company’s own patented methods. For more information, visit
