SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lithium Exploration Group Inc. (OTCQB: LEXG) today updated shareholders on progress on the ultrasonic generator technology. The technology's master licensor, led by co-principal and inventor Dr. Victor Glotov, concluded their review with various engineering experts of the Philadelphia Unit componentry. The unanimous consensus was that significant design flaws in the bowls and shaft from the principal pump's manufacturer, exacerbated by former Glottech-USA management's inadequate supervision of such design and manufacturing, caused the Philadelphia Unit to be inoperable for the purpose intended. Focus now shifts exclusively to the completion of the first horizontal unit for field testing. With the design phase completed, machining and assembly of the horizontal unit has begun and testing is on schedule.
"Working closely with Dr. Glotov and his team to develop the Ultrasonic Generator Technology remains a priority for us. Given that he has already developed this technology once in Russia, he and his team will have the horizontal unit up and running in short order," commented CEO Alex Walsh. "With the development of the horizontal unit well underway, 100% focus is on commencing field testing with this new mobile unit, and to that end our partners can count on our full support in moving forward. Our mutual interests in developing this technology continue to be perfectly aligned."
