TORONTO, May 31, 2012 /CNW/ - Canada Lithium Corp. (TSX: CLQ) (OTCQX: CLQMF) 
announced today the appointments of Yves Desrosiers as General Manager and 
Joël Gagnon as Process Plant Manager of the Québec Lithium mine and 
processing plant under construction near Val d'Or, Québec. Mr. Desrosiers 
assumes operations responsibility for the entire mine and process plant, which 
enters the commissioning phase later this year. 
Mr. Desrosiers most recently was Assistant General Manager for ArcelorMittal's

mine production, mine engineering and maintenance oversight of the large 
mobile equipment fleet. 
During his career with Arcelor Mittal, Mr. Desrosiers was previously Mining 
Manager, Plant Manager and Kiln Coordinator. Earlier, he worked as Plant 
Superintendent for a graphite mine and as metallurgist for gold plant 
operations in Abitibi. 
The veteran mine manager holds a Bachelor of Materials and Metallurgical 
Engineering, Université Laval, Sainte-Foy, (Québec). 
"We were seeking a general manager with across-the-board operating experience, 
from mining through to the finished marketable product. Mr. Desrosiers more 
than qualifies in every respect," said Canada Lithium Chief Operating Officer 
Charles Taschereau. 
Mr. Gagnon was most recently Plant Manager of IAMGOLD's Essakane mine in 
Burkina Faso and, prior to that, Plant General Superintendent of Semafo's 
Samira Hill operation in Niger. Mr. Gagnon brings over 25 years of experience 
in operation, maintenance and optimization of mineral processing plants. In 
total, he has been involved, or in charge of, six process plant start-ups, 
several of which were in northern Quebec. 
At full production, the Québec Lithium mine and plant is anticipated to have 
close to 200 employees.
