Reno, Nevada US, December 13, 2012 /FSC/ - Lithium Corp. (LTUM - OTCBB), is pleased to announce that it has received the analytical results from the most recent round of drilling on its San Emidio property in Washoe County, Nevada.
Lithium Corporation tested an area of the property where prior exploration by the Company discovered elevated lithium levels in subsurface brines. During the recent program a total of 261 meters (856 feet) was drilled at 8 discrete sites. The deepest hole was 48.76 meters (160 feet), and the shallowest hole that produced brine was 27.43 meters (90 feet). The average depth of the seven hole program was 27.43 meters (107 feet). The program better defined a lithium-in-brine anomaly that was
discovered in early 2012. This anomaly is approximately one kilometer (0.6 miles) wide at its widest point by more than 5 kilometers (3 miles) long. The peak value seen within the anomaly is 23.7 mg/l lithium, which is 10 to 20 times background levels seen outside the anomaly. The Company believes that the playa at San Emidio may be conducive to the formation of a "Silver Peak" style lithium brine deposit, and the recent drilling indicates that the anomaly occurs at or near the intersection of several faults that may have provided the structural setting necessary for the formation of a buried lithium-in-brine deposit.
Lithium Corporation is compiling all data, and intends to amend its permits with the Bureau of Land Management, and to commence a deeper drilling program here as soon as feasible in 2013.
In addition to drilling the San Emidio prospect, Lithium Corporation continues to generate and evaluate other prospects, and recently finished drilling at its Fish Lake Valley prospect in Esmeralda County Nevada. All samples from this program have been delivered to Inspectorate Laboratories facility in Vancouver, B.C., and the Company is awaiting results.
