Canada Lithium Announces Results of Water Discharge Tests; Metal Levels Within Acceptable Concentration Levels

Canada Lithium Announces Results of Water Discharge Tests; Metal Levels Within 
Acceptable Concentration Levels 
TSX: CLQ; U.S. OTC: CLQMF 
TORONTO, March 27, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Canada Lithium Corp. ("Canada Lithium" 
or the "Company") (TSX: CLQ) (U.S. OTC: CLQMF) announced today that assay 
evaluation of the recent water discharge from the process-water cell in its 
Tailings Management Facility (TMF) has confirmed that all assays and tests on 
the discharge water indicate metal levels were within acceptable levels of 
discharge into the environment. 
The Company also reported that discharge-water samples containing suspended 
solids, which were above normal levels, were also tested for potential 
toxicity to fish populations, specifically rainbow trout. These tests proved 
negative as well. 
In a press release dated March 20, Canada Lithium reported that it had 
notified the Québec Ministère du Développement durable, de l'Environnement 
de la Faune et des Parcs (MDDEFP) of the water discharge from a cell in its 
TMF on March 19. The MDDEFP's preliminary assessment indicated that 
approximately 50,000 cubic metres of water were released, and the Company was 
allowed to carry on with the commissioning of its lithium carbonate processing 
plant and its use of the remaining tailings cell. 
The initial evaluation of the source of the leak has identified a 
50-centimetre-long tear along the southern wall of the geo-membrane. 
Specialists from Golder Associates, the geotechnical consultant for the TMF, 
and personnel from the MDDEFP have been on-site to inspect the tear. Golder 
personnel will remain on-site as remediation efforts begin and, as previously 
indicated, the Company will provide a remedial action plan to the MDDEFP. 
The Company is currently installing a water treatment system to insure that, 
while repairs are under way, water accumulations from melting ice and snow in 
the pond will be filtered for suspended solids. 
As noted previously, the Company does not expect any delay in commissioning or 
increase in capital costs relating to the event. 
The Company will continue to monitor the situation closely and is committed to 
its ongoing approach to sustainable development and the prevention or 
mitigation of the impact of its activities on the environment. The Company has 
developed a number of practical programs for environmental management, which 
include input from its local communities, as well as from experts in these 
fields. 
About Canada Lithium Corp. 
The Company holds a 100% interest in the Québec Lithium Project near Val 
d'Or, the geographical heart of the Québec mining industry. It has completed 
construction and is in the commissioning phase of an open-pit mine and on-site 
processing plant with estimated capacity to produce approximately 20,000 
tonnes of battery-grade lithium carbonate annually. Metallurgical tests have 
produced battery-grade lithium carbonate samples. A five-year off-take 
agreement for a minimum of 12,000 tonnes per year was recently signed with 
Tewoo-ERDC, one of China's largest commodities traders. A second off-take for 
up to 5,000 tonnes per year was recently signed with Marubeni Corp., a major 
Japanese commodities trading company. Lithium carbonate is used in lithium-ion 
batteries that power consumer electronics (laptops, tablets, etc.), power-grid 
storage facilities and electric and hybrid vehicles. The Company trades 
under the symbol CLQ on the TSX and on the U.S. OTCQX under the symbol CLQMF.
