Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On September 1, 2021, American Battery Technology Company (the “Company”) and 1317038 Nevada Ltd., (the “Seller”) entered into the Exploration License with Option to Purchase (the “Agreement”). Pursuant to the Agreement, in exchange for consideration consisting of a $50,000 payment and a subsequent $100,000 payment by the Company to the Seller, the Seller granted the Company an exploration license providing the Company with the exclusive right to enter upon and conduct mineral exploration activities on the Seller’s unpatented 305 lode mining claims in the Tonopah Mining District in Nye and Esmeralda Counties in Nevada (the “Claims”). The Agreement also granted the Seller an option to purchase the Claims from the Seller for additional consideration of $8,000,000 (the “Purchase Price”).


After exercising its option to purchase the Claims from the Seller, the Company and the Seller on July 10, 2022 entered into the Escrow Services Agreement (the “Escrow Agreement”) to effectuate the purchase of the Claims for the Purchase Price. Pursuant to the Escrow Agreement, the Company deposited the initial $4,000,000 of the Purchase Price into an escrow account, payable to the Seller on or before July 21, 2022 (the “Initial Payment”), with an additional $4,000,000 payment, payable either in cash or an equivalent amount of the Company’s common stock at the Company’s sole option, to be deposited by the Seller into escrow within 90 days of the release of the Initial Payment from escrow (the “Subsequent Payment”). Upon payment of the Subsequent Payment into escrow, the notarized executed mining claim deeds representing the Seller’s ownership interest will be released from escrow to the Company and the purchase completed.


The foregoing description of the Agreement and Escrow Agreement are qualified in their entirety by reference to such Agreements, which are filed as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 10.2 hereto, and incorporated herein by reference
