Ultra Lithium Appoints Top Lithium Expert To Advisory Board

Vancouver, B.C., January 14, 2010Ultra Lithium Plus. (TSX-V: ULI) (“Ultra” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Keith Evans to the advisory board effective immediately.

The International Lithium Alliance regards Mr. Evans as their "resident expert" and he is a member of their International Advisory Board.  Industrial Minerals magazine regards him as one of the leading figures in the industry. 

Mr. Evans is a geologist with over thirty-five years experience in the lithium industry. Mr. Evans holds an honours graduate degree in geology from the University of Wales.

Mr. Evans has written extensively on the subject of lithium, generally with an emphasis on global reserves and resources. Throughout his career, he monitored industry developments particularly in respect of new worldwide resources and has continued as a consultant for a number of industrial minerals.

Mr. Evans became involved in the lithium business when on behalf of Selection Trust Ltd. he was asked to evaluate future options for the further development of Bikita Minerals in, now, Zimbabwe.  The company, for decades, had been the leading producer of lithium ores for direct use in the glass and ceramics industry. Subsequently, he joined Lithium Corporation of America, the then-leading lithium chemical producer, and later joined Amax Exploration (“Amax”). On behalf of Amax, he negotiated the rights to evaluate and develop a major part of the Salar de Atacama. The project subsequently was acquired by Sociedad Quimica y Minera (SQM), now the world's largest lithium chemicals producer.

Mr. Tony Ricci, CEO of Ultra Lithium commented, “We are very pleased to add Mr. Evans to our technical team. On behalf of the board, I look forward to working with one of the world’s foremost lithium experts as we continue to advance our projects.”
