American Lithium Reports 1,109 Li ppm over 61 Meters on 1st Drill Hole at TLC Project
 

Vancouver, British Columbia -- March 19, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire --  American Lithium Corp. (TSXV: LI) (OTCQB: LIACF) (FSE: 5LA) ("American Lithium" or the "Company") a leading acquisition, exploration and development operator is extremely pleased to announce outstanding assay results from the first phase-one drill hole on its 630 ha (1,550 acre), TLC lithium claystone project located just outside the mining centre of Tonopah, Nevada.

 

Highlights

  • First results of 18-hole drill program
  • 1,109 Li ppm over 61 meters from a near surface depth of 11m, including 1.5m of 1,615 ppm Li
  • Consistent lithium surface results over 4 square miles, (10 km2) and open in all directions
  • The Company is actively staking additional ground

Mike Kobler, CEO of American Lithium notes, "We identified this initial discovery based on favorable surface grab sampling that returned initial grades as high as 1,380 ppm Li. Given the consistency of surface mineralization across the project, we elected the middle of the claim block as a starting point. From here, we aim to maximize our step-out and build upon the initial drill hole, outcrop and geochemical data to shape our drill targeting and understanding of the basin. Based on the excellent initial results, we're actively staking additional surrounding lands."

 

As previously announced, the wholly-owned Tonopah Lithium Claystone (TLC) Project is scheduled for an extensive phase one drill program undertaken by Harris Exploration Drilling and Associates Inc., of Fallon, Nevada. The first phase began mid February and calls for a series of holes at 100m (300 foot) average depths to a maximum of 160m (500 feet) and will encompass a total of 1,600 m (5,000 feet) of 5.5 diameter reverse circulation drill sampling to increase the scope and eventual valuation of this prospective lithium-bearing claystone-rich environment.

 

In summary, the Company reports the results from the first discovery drill hole indicate limited overburden approximately 1.5 meters thick, with a significant near surface 72-meter-thick lithium enriched area of mineralization. Additional drill results anticipated within the next two weeks should aid in the determination of area-wide grade and thickness assessment. Company management looks forward to providing further results as they become available.

 

QA/QC Statement

Drilling was conducted by Harris Exploration Drilling and Associates Inc., of Fallon, Nevada utilizing a "1500 Explorer" reverse circulation rig with a 5 diameter hole with face centred bit. Sampling was conducted using a riffle splitter or a cyclone splitter depending on the moisture content of the sampled material. Sampling was conducted over 5-foot (1.52m) intervals. Sample custody was maintained by the company's consultants throughout the sampling and logging process. The company has a rigorous QA/QC program utilizing blanks, duplicates and a high and a low-grade lithium standard material. Duplicates and standard material are inserted into the sample stream on a 5% and 5% basis, and blank material was inserted at the start and finish of drill hole sample set. Samples were sent to American Assay Laboratories in Sparks Nevada for analysis utilizing the ICP-MS analysis protocol. Selected check assays samples were sent to the Bureau Veritas in Reno/Vancouver for analysis by ICP-MS.
