GD Glottech International Provides Operations Update for LEXG Shareholders

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) - Today Lithium Exploration Group Inc. (OTCQB: LEXG) released an update from GD Glottech International ("GDGI") on operational activity and future plans for the technology:

  • Over the last six months GDGI has established relationships with strategic partners in the Americas, Europe, and the Middle East, including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Germany, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the United States of America and Venezuela. Within these countries, targeted industries include desalination, mineral extraction/tailings (copper, lithium, and gold), natural gas hydraulic fracturing, and oil (thinning and refining). 

  • To affect a coordinated global launch, much has been accomplished in creating the ideal Project Team to bring the technology to market. First, one of the world's premier pump engineers was brought out of retirement to lead our engineering division. Next, a Fortune 100 senior global director was enticed to head operations, which have already included high-level discussions with three governments to achieve the most lucrative package possible in selecting our location for manufacturing and assembly. An internationally known pump manufacturer is also already on board, ramping up for what is expected to be a need for 300 pumps per month at full production. And a recognized legal team is being assembled to strengthen and secure the patents.

"We have been impressed with the team that our partners at GDGI have assembled to move the project forward expeditiously. It is important that we keep our shareholders updated on their progress in developing this technology," commented CEO Alex Walsh. "We will be distributors of the technology within Canada and it will also be a critical part of our lithium extraction and disposal business segments, enhancing production capabilities for each."
