FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                                                            OTCQB: LTUM


Elko, NV – April 09, 2024 – Lithium Corporation (OTCQB:LTUM) (“LTUM” or “the Company”), a North American exploration mining company focused on energy metals for the growing energy storage sector and high-tech industries, is pleased to inform investors the Company recently expanded its portfolio with the addition of a newly staked property prospective for hosting fluorspar mineralization.

The Las Pilas claim block, staked by Lithium Corp. in February 2024, is located in the Greenwood Mining Division in south central British Columbia, Canada. The approximately 5,178 acre (2095.54 hectare) property lies roughly three kilometers from the past producing Rock Candy Fluorspar mine. The mine produced around 51,500 tonnes of ore with an average grade of 68% CaF2, 22% SiO2 between 1918 and 1929. It closed during the Great Depression and never reopened. Another 60,000 tonnes of probable ore is estimated contained in the previously mined workings. While fluorite epithermal vein mineralization is known to extend from this area more than a kilometer north to Fluorine Lake, no modern work has been conducted to expand the size of the deposit.

Lithium Corporation’s claim block was staked on the basis of similar geology, stream sediment and water geochemistry as seen in the vicinity of the Rock Candy Mine. The highest fluorine value in the general area (750 ppm) was collected from a stream that drains northern portions of the Company’s block. This is believed to be a strong indicator that similar or better mineralization occurs in the general area. The Company is excited about the potential of this prospective property, and anticipates commencing geochemical and geological surveys here within the month.

The US Government classifies fluorine, and its source mineral fluorspar, as critical and ‘essential to national security and economic prosperity’. Fluorinated compounds have a growing role in advancing clean energy technology through their use in electrolyte salts, binders, and separator coatings in lithium-ion batteries. The presence of fluorinated additives imparts critical benefits to lithium-ion batteries including significantly improving thermal stability of the electrolyte and the related safety performance of the battery. A relationship between fluorinated additives and improved performance of lithium-ion batteries in sub-zero temperatures has also been demonstrated. Leading battery industry market intelligence firm Benchmark Minerals reports, “fluorspar demand from the lithium ion battery sector is expected to exceed 1.6 million tonnes by 2030”.
Critical Mineral status includes fluorspar in targeted efforts by Government to facilitate and expand domestic mining, production, processing, and recycling in North America. Currently, 100% of US fluorspar consumption is satisfied by imports. China has a commanding lead in global fluorspar supply with 65% of world mine production.
