It owns interests in the Cauchari-Olaroz project located in Jujuy province of Argentina; Thacker Pass project located in north-western Nevada; and Pastos Grandes project located in the Salta province of Argentina. The company was formerly known as Western Lithium USA Corporation and changed its name to Lithium Americas Corp. in March 2016.

Lithium Americas has since acquired and developed three major lithium projects in South America: the Cauchari-Olaroz project in Argentina, the Thacker Pass project in Nevada, and the Maricunga project in Chile.

The mission of Lithium Americas is to be a leading global supplier of sustainable, responsible, and ethically-sourced lithium and other advanced materials.
