Investigation 

Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Piedmont Lithium Inc. (PLL) (“Piedmont” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PLL) The investigation concerns whether Piedmont and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated federal securities laws.

 

In 2020, Piedmont signed a deal to supply Tesla Inc. with lithium sourced from its deposits in North Carolina.  Then, on July 20, 2021, Reuters reported that Piedmont “has not applied for a state mining permit or a necessary zoning variance in Gaston County, just west of Charlotte, despite telling investors since 2018 that it was on the verge of doing so.”  Reuters further reported that “[f]ive of the seven members of the county's board of commissioners, who control zoning changes, say they may block or delay the project because Piedmont has not told them what levels of dust, noise and vibrations will occur, nor how water and air quality would be affected.”  On this news, Piedmont’s stock price fell $12.56 per share, or 19.91%, to close at $50.52 per share on July 20, 2021.
