- October 18th, 2016

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Oct. 18, 2016) – Advantage Lithium Corp. (TSXV:AAL) and its partner, Nevada Sunrise (TSXV:NEV), are pleased to announce that a drill program has begun at their Clayton NE property, which borders Albemarle’s Silver Peak lithium brine production operation in Clayton Valley, Nevada.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Oct. 18, 2016) – Advantage Lithium Corp. (TSXV:AAL) and its partner, Nevada Sunrise (TSXV:NEV), are pleased to announce that a drill program has begun at their Clayton NE property, which borders Albemarle’s Silver Peak lithium brine production operation in Clayton Valley, Nevada. O’Keefe Drilling, of Butte Montana, has been retained to drill by reverse circulation (RC) equipment approximately 4,500 ft (~1,500m) in three holes that will focus on high-priority lithium brine targets close to the Silver Peak mine in proximity to several of Albemarle’s production wells.
Drill Program Highlights

  • Three priority drill targets have been chosen to best intersect the broadest and most conductive zones detected by the recently completed DC Resistivity survey.
  • Historical drilling within the project area by the United States Geological Survey (“USGS”) was reported to encounter elevated lithium values in ground water
  • Advantage Lithium is the only lithium explorer in the Clayton Valley, other than Albemarle, with access to certified water rights

David Sidoo, President and Director, of Advantage Lithium, commented: “In line with our strategy of growth via acquisition and the drill bit, we are very pleased to be starting our first drill program at Clayton NE, which benefits from both its geology and its proximity to Albemarle’s lithium production wells, as well as our access to water rights in the region.”
Survey identifies highly-conductive zones. In September 2016, an 11.0 line-km Volterra 3D Resistivity ground geophysical survey successfully imaged highly-conductive zones at Clayton NE. These zones are interpreted as brine formations and extend to the survey limit of approximately 800m depth. The northeast trending Angel Island fault appears to bound the conductive horizons parallel to and proximal to the eastern claim boundary at Clayton NE.
