SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Two weeks ago, Lithium Exploration Group (OTCQB: LEXG) purchased a pump and had drawings commissioned to be used to develop the second UCG. This week it will be moved to GD Glottech International's (GDGI) facility to complete the modifications, assembly, and testing. After review by GDGI's industry experts the rebuilding of the shaft on the initial unit is underway and testing is expected to resume in 4 to 6 weeks.
"Our partners at GDGI have a new state-of-the-art 40,000ft2 facility that is ideal for machining, assembly, and testing of the next UCG and all future orders.

"We have experienced delays with the testing of the first unit in Pennsylvania but the testing performed in November and December of 2012 has produced important feedback on correcting the problems and improving the design of the second unit."
