Lithium Corporation Signs Option Agreement to Acquire Graphite Property
RENO, Nev. -- April 18, 2013
Lithium Corporation (OTCBB: LTUM) (the "Company", or “Lithco”) is pleased to
announce that it has signed an option agreement to acquire the Mount Heimdal
Flake Graphite property in the Slocan Mining Division of British Columbia.
The Mt Heimdal property is comprised of three (3) mineral claims, which
encompass 2,582 acres (1,045 hectares) of highly metamorphosed rock. The
property is roughly six miles (10 kms) South of Eagle Graphite’s Black Crystal
quarry, and is located within the same package of gneisses, graphite
mineralized marbles, and calc-silicate gneisses. Data from BC Geological
Survey assessment reports indicate that mineralization grading up to 4.8%
graphitic carbon may be located on the property.
High purity graphite is presently the most widely used anode material for
Lithium Ion battery technology, and typically greater than ten times more
graphite is used in comparison to lithium in Lithium Ion battery production.
In addition to increased graphite consumption due to growth in Lithium Ion
batteries sales, carbon fiber composites are increasingly being utilized in
auto, and aircraft construction. Also, presently there is considerable
research into graphene, a flake graphite product, and it is possible a myriad
of new applications or discoveries will ensue as a direct result of this work.
The terms of the option agreement dictate that Lithco spend $15,000 in
exploration on the property, and complete an assessment report by 30 November
of 2013. Upon successful completion of the program and the report Lithium
Corporation will earn a 100% interest in the claims, subject to a 1.5% Net
Overriding Royalty to the vendor from the proceeds of production. The Company
intends to conduct prospecting and geological field work on this property
during the summer of 2013.
Lithco believes that the inclusion of the Mount Heimdal Flake Graphite
property to the existing lithium brine exploration portfolio is complimentary.
The company also intends to drill its Fish Lake Valley, and San Emidio lithium
brine prospects once surface conditions improve later in 2013. In addition to
these properties Lithium Corporation continues to generate and evaluate other
