Lithium Exploration Group Updates Valleyview Project

Feb 13, 2012, 12:21 ET from Lithium Exploration Group

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week, Lithium Exploration Group (LEXG: OTCBB) completed the final draft of its 43-101 Technical Report. The report outlines an inferred resource at the Valleyview Project, including lithium, potassium, magnesium, and other minerals calculated using sample data from testing completed in May 2011.  The company is awaiting feedback from the TSX on the inferred resource calculation before publishing the results of the study, but hopes to receive feedback this week.  The final parts of the ultrasonic generator also were delivered to the testing facility in West Chester, PA, last week.  The team from Glottech is currently connecting the water source, valves, and electrical componentry and hopes to begin testing the unit during the last week of February.

"We have experienced a number of delays with both the 43-101 and the testing of the ultrasonic generator, but now both are complete and we're ready to move to the next steps.  We have the final calculations on the inferred resource for the Valleyview Project but have chosen to not release those until we have had the calculation method reviewed by the TSX.  The generator has been delivered from the manufacturer and I fully expect to be on site overseeing the initial testing before the end of February.  We are going to have a video crew there to tape the testing and will be putting that on our website for everyone to see.  It is exciting that these two huge milestones for our company are coming to fruition at the same time, and we anticipate moving forward aggressively to the next steps in our strategic plan," commented CEO Alex Walsh.
