Liberty One Lithium Corp. (TSX.V:LBY) (OTCQB:LRTTF) (FRANKFURT:L1T), an exploration and development company focused on the acquisition and recovery of high grade lithium brine deposits, wishes to advise that plans are underway to examine a short-list of prospective lithium properties in both Latin America and the continental USA in Q1 2018.
Company CEO, Brad Nichol notes, “We have had exploration plans for our Utah property in the works for some time, and our extremely favorable $10MM in working capital provides us the opportunity to advance those efforts as well as broadening our reach in search of undiscovered or undervalued projects in order to deliver on our strategic goals for measured growth. Our desire to build a global portfolio of lithium holdings is based on our assessment of supply chain trends that we believe requires positive and decisive action as the economics of the lithium market continues to evolve.”
“In that regard, we have determined that our exploration efforts at the Pocitos West property in Argentina falls short of the viability we require to move ahead based on our current economic projections.” Mr. Nichol continues, “Therefore, we have elected to discontinue further operations or investment in the Pocitos Salar at this time. Perhaps a more aggressive operator might undertake a full field exploration program in future, but our near-term exploratory goals have been achieved, and we now feel our investment will be better utilized in other jurisdictions where risk factors best suit our stage of business development. We are very pleased to have utilized this project to validate our abilities, gain strategic technical insights, and create important new relationships within the global lithium mining community. Today we are more prepared than ever before to meet the opportunities ahead.”
Concurrent with today’s announcement, Liberty One recently affirmed 2018 plans to commence an evaluation of its promising “North Paradox” property consisting of 233 placer claims encompassing 4,480 acres located within the Paradox Basin in Grand County, Utah. Log data at the Utah Geological Survey library indicates the area appears rich with supersaturated brines, and nearby long-term mine operations effectively demonstrate the climatic efficacy for traditional evaporative production processes. Additionally, the Company has committed to examining a range of global venture opportunities in Q1/18 to ascertain investment threshold criteria which will be identified in due course upon entry into any material agreements.
Brad Peek, MSc., CPG, a non-arm’s length party to the Company, is the Qualified Person responsible for the technical disclosure in this news release relating and limited to the “North Paradox” property in Grand County, Utah.
In related news, Mr. John Davidson has tendered his resignation from the Board of Directors. The Company wishes him well on his future endeavours.
