VANCOUVER, Canada –- Southern Lithium Corp. (TSX-V: SNL) (FSE: SL5) (“Southern” or “the Company”) on August 7, 2017, the Company initiated an investment awareness campaign with Advanced Media Solutions Ltd. which included a sponsored article authored by James Burgess, “The $10 Billion Treasure Hidden In A Dead Volcano”, and was posted on oilprice.com. Pursuant to the news release dated September 12, 2017, the Company retracts the disclosure contained in the sponsored article. The sponsored article was highly promotional in nature with potentially misleading information and it did not meet the disclosure requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange or Canadian securities legislation, including scientific and technical requirements under NI 43-101 and it should not be relied on.
With respect to the drilling program on the Cruz Property, the Company will be completing the second hole shortly, and assay results are expected in late September.
About the Cruz Property
The Company has executed a formal option agreement with Proyecto Pastos Grandes S.A. (“PPG SA”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSX.V:ML) (FSE: A3N2) (OTCQB:MLNLF), through the option Southern Lithium can earn up to an eighty percent (80%) interest in the PPG SA’s Cruz Property in the Pocitos Salar Basin in Salta Province, Argentina.
The Cruz property is located in South America’s Lithium Triangle (northern Chile, northwestern Argentina and southwestern Bolivia). The property encompasses 9,027 hectares (22,306 acres) in the Pocitos salar basin in Salta province, Argentina.
The Cruz Property is in the northern end of the Pocitos Salar Basin and contiguous to the southern end of the Salar del Rincón Basin, where ADY Resources Limited is extracting lithium brine. Both properties lie along the structural belt that hosts the important lithium resources of the region, at the junction of a large north-south fault system and the northwest-southeast megastructure along which lies the Rincon volcano, the possible source of the lithium brine in both salar basins. The 60-kilometre long Pocitos salar basin has previously only been drill tested with a shallow 12-hole program in the 1970s by an Argentinean government agency “Direccion General de Fabricaciones Militares”. To date, this is the only confirmed exploration drilling conducted in the Pocitos basin. The hole that produced the best results is near the southeast edge of the Cruz property boundary, and averaged 417 parts per million lithium. Although these results are considered historical and have not been verified by the Company’s QP, the Company considers these results relevant to the future exploration of the Cruz property.
