Empowering European
Electrification

Battery 3 is a lithium-focused Australian-Finnish exploration company aiming to support the development of an independent, self-sufficient and transparent EU battery value chain.

Why Europe?

Europe is becoming increasingly aware that an independent supply of lithium is required to support an integrated battery value chain. This will reduce reliance on imports from China, Australia, and South America, which expose the EU to geo-political instability and supply chain disruptions. Following, EU investment in Battery Gigafactories will drive the further development of the upstream battery value chain.

There is a mismatch between downstream and upstream investment within the European Battery Value Chain.

Securing de-carbonised, ESG transparent and reliable battery production will be dependent on the ability to develop lithium projects within Europe.

Europe is the second largest battery and electric vehicle market globally.

“Without secure and sustainable access to the necessary raw materials, our ambition to become the first climate neutral continent is at risk.”

Ursula von der Leyen – President of the European Commission


“A secure and sustainable supply of raw materials is a prerequisite for a resilient economy. For e-car batteries and energy storage alone, Europe will for instance need up to 18 times more lithium by 2030 and up to 60 times more by 2050.”

Maroš Šefčovič – Commissioner for Interinstitutional Relations and Foresight, European Commission

Why Finland?

Development of the Battery Minerals Industry within Finland – as a jurisdiction endowed with rich natural resources, attractive investment and a political landscape and situated within the European carbon border – will play a significant role in the decarbonization of the European continent.

Reservation Areas


The Noronkorpi, Eräjärvi and Sundvik Regions in the west, Kurkivaara, Lökkiö and Pykälä Regions in the east were identified as areas of interest, after the team conducted a detailed study using Finnish GTK Data.

Small reservation footprints were prioritised to minimise local stakeholder impact, preserve areas of natural beauty and avoid Natura 2000 conservation areas.

Northern regions were intentionally avoided in to avert disruption to First Nations People and Native Reindeer Migration.

The Kurkivaara, Lokkio and Pykala regions were chosen due to prospective geological potential & presence of LCT pegmatites.
