Recent exploration work was carried out during 2010-2013 by Minera Mariana Argentina S.A., a subsidiary of Mariana Resources Ltd., a Canadian mining company. A total of five holes were completed on the Property with cumulative drilling of 1785 meters during this period. Ultra Lithium has acquired historical brine samples assay results for the five holes. Chemical analysis on samples was performed by Alex Stewart Laboratory in Mendoza, Argentina using industry standard trace inductively-coupled plasma (ICP) methods. The historical values are:

  • Hole LB001 was 228 milligrams per liter (mg/L) lithium, 844 mg/L magnesium, and 2222 mg/L potassium.
  • Hole LB002 returned 226 mg/L lithium, 856 mg/L magnesium and 2248 mg/L potassium.
  • Hole LBDDH005, a 650-meter-deep well, was sampled twice from November 2011, and then December 2012. Lithium values were 228 mg/L in 2011 and 242 mg/L in 2012. Magnesium was 844 mg/L for 2011 and 854 mg/L for 2012, and potassium was 2222 mg/L in 2011 and 2215 mg/L in 2012.
  • Holes LB003 and LB004 returned no anomalous lithium values.

The reported copper and base metals mineralization on the Property is composed of: 1) Rusty copper minerals in travertine, with malachite, azurite, atazanite, freirinite and calcantite dissolving in water; and 2) Phosgenite (lead) veins. There are several reported old adits and trenches on the Property, and 15 surface samples collected by Mariana indicated values of copper from 0.38 to 3.41% with anomalous values of lead, zinc and silver.

CAUTION: A qualified person has not done sufficient work to verify the historical results; therefore, they should not be relied upon and are presented for informational purposes only. The historical information will be used by Company to plan further exploration.

  1. Under the terms of agreement signed on June 20, 2017 between Luis Manuel Alvarez (the Vendor) and the Company, ULI will pay the following:
    408,320 Argentinian Pesos (approximately USD $25,520) to the Mining Secretariat of Catamarca upon signing the agreement. The payment is for outstanding canon fees.
  2. USD $30,000 30 days after verification sampling and due diligence is completed.
  3. USD $1,000,000 in four equal quarterly payments commencing one year from signing the agreement to acquire 100% rights on the Property.

The Vendor will retain a 2.5 % royalty.

(TSX-V: ULI) (FSE: QFB) (“ULI” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a binding Letter of Intent to acquire an 80 % interest in a lithium salar property located in Puna Plateau north western Argentina from Jinshan Minera Argentina S.A. (“the Vendor” or “JMA”). The property is located about 25 kilometres to the west of Cauchari-Olaroz brine lithium deposit where Orocobre has a producing lithium mine, and a joint venture of Lithium Americas with Sociedad Química y Minera de Chile (SQM) is developing a brine lithium project.

The property is comprised of six lithium and two gold exploration licenses covering an approximate area of 20,535 square kilometres. It has good infrastructure support with road and rail access to the provincial capital and port in Antofagasta. During the period from 2011-13, JMA carried out exploration work on the property which included drilling 20 shallow wells (1-5 m deep) and collecting 83 brine samples. Highlights of the assay results from these samples is presented below.

  • 31 samples returned over 150 ppm lithium (Li) and over 3,000 ppm potassium (K).
  • In 31 samples, average grade of lithium was 323 ppm (max. 800 ppm Li) and 4810 ppm potassium (max. 7500 ppm K).
  • Low magnesium (Mg) to Li ratio (11 in all samples).

Under the terms of LOI, Ultra Lithium will have an 80% interest in the project during the exploration stage and will increase its interest to 90% when the Company proceeds to the development stage. Ultra Lithium will be responsible for all the exploration and development expenditures on the property.
